Seattle by Night

There are very few cities whose skylines are instantly recognizable. If given a series of skyline photographs – I could just as easily confuse Boston for Houston and vice versa. Perhaps this is evidence of my limited geographical and architectural knowledge, but honestly who can distinguish between such cities as Sacramento and LA based on a skyline photo (unless of course you live in one or the other)? I can only identify several city skylines – Sydney, New York, and San Francisco are the first to come to mind, but Seattle, with the easily identifiable Space Needle always lingering in the foreground, must be a obvious giveaway, right?! Perhaps I have such inflated pride in my city that I automatically assume others must recognize Seattle, but I have been wrong many times before. Which cities stand out to you with their iconic skylines?


This past week I headed out in the city at night to capture a few images of “iconic” Seattle. For those who have never been to Seattle, first let me encourage you to do so (I make a great tour guide!), but second do they give away Seattle’s identity?


I apologize for the briefness of this entry, but as I have two guests (ages 7 and 9) staying with me for Labor Day weekend I have had little time do anything in front of a computer. We spent the last two days visiting many of Seattle’s famous landmarks and have ate our weight in cupcakes, gelato, cheesecake, and cinnamon rolls – so really I have been too busy stuffing my face to do anything worthwhile. Happy Labor Day!
