Take Off

This is an abstract view of the Space Needle in Seattle that i noticed when walking back to our accommodation. The lower part is the wall of Seattle Center which is illuminated by street light. The space needle is illuminated by something all together more powerful!

The Space Needle is a tower in Seattle, Washington, and is a major landmark of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States and a symbol of Seattle. Located at the Seattle Center, it was built for the 1962 World's Fair, during which time nearly 20,000 people a day used the elevators, with over 2.3 million visitors in all for the World Fair. The Space Needle is 605 feet (184 m) high at its highest point and 138 feet (42 m) wide at its widest point and weighs 9,550 tons. When it was completed it was the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River.

A few years since I went up there. Really nice angle on the Needle.
