I am pausing in the travels briefly. After the first few days it became obvious that the blog was not going to be in real time but some type of virtual experience of the trip. We arrived home but the blog has not gotten out of Seattle yet. Now, here I pause for a diversion, oh, maybe in the virtual we will never get home. I think that may be a great way to take a real trip.
I have always had a fondness for the Seattle Space Needle because when I was in the seventh or eighth grade my family went to the Seattle World’s Fair and I have an iconic picture floating around here somewhere of me on the observation deck of the needle.
Can’t find it at the moment, but it was a great diversion on the trip to try to get a picture of the Space Needle. I never quite knew when it was going to emerge, but I ended up with many opportunities for shots, from the car and not. Here the shots are all grouped in one post.
This shot was on the way up to Canada when we were just driving through Seattle. The top of the Space Needle is just barely peaking out between two buildings that dwarf it.
Square photos are using the Hipstamatic app with these combos of lens and film: John S lens and Kodot XGrizzled film; John S lens and Big Up film; Watts lens and Big Up film.
Photos in rectangular shape are taken with the native camera if the iPhone and cropped with Iris Photo Suite if needed.
The Space Needle is special…
