Happy Solstice Sunset

Summer in Seattle makes the winter almost worthwhile.  Yesterday was the solstice and it was light out until almost 10 PM.  Not a cloud to be seen and perfect weather.

I’ll admit that this picture wasn’t from the solstice proper – I took it a week or two back, but it was on one of our other perfect days.  Downtown doesn’t have as much of a focal point as I’d like – the space needle is way too far north and most of the bigger and more distinct buildings are buried down the hill.  The twin circular towers of the Westin are about the more distinctive things we have.  It does remind me of the World’s Fair 1960’s style stuff that still lingers (space needle, monorail, etc) so I guess that’s ok.
