Seattle and the Atomic Age

Before Seattle was a city that couldn’t get anything done (thanks, NIMBYs!), there was a time when Big Things happened here.  Like building a big phallic space tower for the World’s Fair.  Now Seattle Center is mostly home to that arena nobody wants and your odd music festival.  Tucked into the nooks and crannies are still memories of that big celebration.  In the northwest corner are some dilapidated conference rooms.  The courtyard outside is illuminated with these.

Shooting up into the sun at mid-day, I decided to turn it into an HDR to bring out more of the tone in the shadows.  I love these lights though – they should put them everywhere.
