Broad Strokes – Three Dimensions

Visually, Seattle clusters in broad strokes among three dimensions. There’s the up and down of tall, tall buildings. There’s the Seattle you find more of to your right and to your left, more buildings, more streets, more sidewalks. Seattle extends in front of you, behind you and way over in every direction – bridges curve with the landscape and cross huge expanses of land and water. Seattle is a walker’s city. Distances around the city core are manageable walking distances. Navigating the downtown core is straightforward. The terrain offers up and down, a good walker’s workout. And, fresh air blows up from the ocean through the city. Movie-wise I recognized the city watching an eighty’s movie only last weekend; Seattle is the setting within the movie, An Officer and A Gentleman. And, during our time in Seattle, we were able to see the Lake Union lake cottage set of the house used by Tom Hanks’ character in the movie Sleepless in Seattle; we’d taken the Ducks’ tour and saw many of Seattle’s highlights. The Seattle night photos remind much of U2’s music video presentation of their album No Line on the Horizon and specifically to City of Blinding Lights, a reference more directly referring to Paris, France; the appellation could just as easily refer to the Seattle that I’ve seen at night.

Listening to a preview of Jack White’s Blunderbuss album; it’s holding true to Jack White sound; it’s good and it’s fresh Jack White.

Quote to Inspire – “There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera.  And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed.  Don’t be bitter because you can’t record it. Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!” – Degriff

    As usual … spectacular! Seattle has such a face all of its own, unlike any other place. I can’t wait to go back to the Emerald City. I had no idea the Space Needle was 50 already. Time is whizzing by!!!

      Time is whizzing by … I’m older than the space needle … shudder. 🙂

        So am I but it’s what’s between our ears and in our hearts that matter; not the wrinkles on our faces. I call them wisdom lines. Feel free to use that 🙂

    The sunshowers, the building reflected, the cityscapes… my goodness, you are so good at capturing beauty, and framing it perfectly.
    Thank you. ~ Lily (Btw, there are some tracks w/Jack White on vocals on the Dangermouse “Rome” album, in case you have not caught that little collaboration.)

    THANKS for visiting my “pun-ny’ photoblog and leaving a “like.” Your photos of Seattle are wonderful. I visited the city once during a conference. It’s a special place.
