Cool View For Two

Happy Valentines Day!
This couple was taking in the view of the Space Needle and downtown Seattle from the observation deck of the 1914 Smith Tower, the city's first skyscraper. For a better view of what they see, click on my More Seattle Stuff page.

If you would care to support SDP in round 2 of Metroblogging Seattle's "Blarch Badness" best blogs of Seattle round up, please click here to vote. The blog I'm paired with in this week's run-off is not a photoblog, and is a city fave.

cela me rappelle une chanson triste de lili olimao sur le chiffre deux, tellement vrai
"un plus un egal deux
moins un, ne reste rien"
Bonne saint valentin

that recalls me a sad song of lili olimao on the figure two, so much truth “more a one equal two minus one, does not remain nothing” Good Valentine saint

oh, this moment looks romantic:)!

Kim said...

Olivier, that is touching sentiment, but I'm sorry it made you think of a sad song.

Lisi, Jing, & Joy thanks so much to each of you!

Dsole, thanks for peeking at More Seattle Stuff. We were on the 36 floor of a 42 story tall building.

Karine, thank you, and right back at cha!

Jazzy, thank you. I hope you enjoyed the day!

Luggi, ROFLMHO. You are too funny. With the wind up there it was very chilly. Down on street level there were still guys in cargo shorts and Tevos. Hey, thanks for voting!

Norma, thanks very much. They were a sweet couple. They turned when they heard the camera click and wanted to get out of the way so I could shoot the scene. When I told them I was more interested in them as part of the scene, they wanted to know what blog it would be in. I hope they see this.

Jean, thank you very much!

Zannie, It was. And this observation deck is just outside the Chinese Room (named for the decor and furniture given to the building's original owner by the last empress of China) which is the most popular room in the city for small wedding receptions. So, there is a lot of romance attached to this view.
