space needle/ship

The weather on Friday, really all week, was brilliant. Bright, sunny, warm days and we’ve gained ~15 minutes of light over the past seven days!

I thought it would be nice to head over to the Space Needle and make a study of Carlson, Graham and Steinbrueck’s design a bit closer up than I had earlier in the week. The Space Needle looks good in any light but particularly against the backdrop of an azure sky.

Turns out, Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper were taking in the sun and the sights. We had a nice chat but Darth Vader wants his building back!

A couple of snapshots of my new friends, the the Space Needle impersonating a Space Ship (double exposure, in camera) and medium shot of the “saucer section”.

Update: Link to Seattle Times article and photos of the steel workers who built the Space Needle.
