Photo Essay: 7 Different Views of the Space Needle

by Ekua on April 12, 2010 in captured on memory card,Washington

Last year, right around this time, I had the opportunity to visit some friends in Seattle during my spring break. Because my friends were working or in school, I spent much of my first morning and afternoon alone, wandering the city on foot. It seemed like every time I turned around, the iconic Space Needle was in the background, presenting itself in a unique way. Here are some photos from that day:

Nature and man made- the Needle through the trees.

Old and new- the Space Needle and a totem pole.

I like #2 the most, but it’s a shame there’s some other random stuff in the background. I looked at your picture, very cool! I didn’t go back to the Seattle Center area at night, but I did go back to Kerry Park after dark to take pictures. Unfortunately, they didn’t come out very well without a tripod.

Thanks! Sometimes you don’t need a tripod at all. Just steady hands or a flat surface. That night shot was taken with an old film-based Kodak point-and-shoot camera.

BEAUTIFUL! What kind of camera do you have? I’m in the market πŸ™‚

I love your site/writing/photography, Ekua!

Thanks! These shots are from my old Nikon digital camera that I don’t really use anymore. It was great and it served me well for 6 years. Right now I think what I have is a Nikon Coolpix S560. It has some pretty easy settings to play around with and it’s nice and compact. Someday I know I will have to get an SLR, but I love being able to use a camera that doesn’t take up a lot of space when I travel!

Love it! I don’t think I can pick a fave. AND I love Seattle.
