A Study of the Spheres
A photo study of the Seattle Spheres, as they’re now known.
Amazon is hosting a photo contest of the spheres and I’m hoping these images are, at the least, insight into what I see when I gaze at, and take inspiration from, the spheres while at my perch in Doppler, on my walks to and from work.
You can check out the other entries by searching for #seattlespheres and #amazonemployeecontest on Instagram and Twitter. Super cool to see the spheres through the eyes of my friends and colleagues! Good luck, all!

Three instant photos taken with my lovely Leica Sofort.
Two “representational” images of the spheres against the sky.
Looking back at the imagery created in 1962 for the opening of the Space Needle, and all that followed, I hope the Spheres become similarly iconic images of this particular time in Seattle’s history.

Great shots! I really like pondering the new icon as framed up with the Space Needle; symbols of our times.
Thank-you! So glad you like the images and the historical contrast. Hope you are well!
