Seattle Comes Alive At Night

As you know, I went out to find the P.I. Globe before it ground to a halt.  Doing so means a little hike, but it wasn’t all for naught.  I got the picture I wanted and I also got a little something else:

The Eagle (sculpture) and Space Needle at night

At first it seemed like everything was still.  I can’t say quiet, as you might notice the blur of a freight train through the bottom of the frame.  With a wide field of view, this also happens to cross the approach path for Seatac Airport.  I love the morse-code of dots and dashes the planes make through my frame and set the exposure up to 13 seconds to record it.  The foreground sculpture is called Eagle and was created by Alexander Calder in 1971.  It is the most recognizable piece of the Olympic Sculpture Park (or “the sculpture garden”, as most people would call it) and I was really happy to capture this shot of it with the most recognizable Seattle landmark in the background.

  1. LOVE this shot. Excellent from the train to the plane to the train (as straight lines) and then the sculpture and Needle spicing it up wth curves.

    Sweet.
