(Best Viewed Large: click photo, click All Sizes, click large.) Across a large parking lot to the south of King Street Station is Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks (American-style) football team. I took this photo from the top of the Smith Tower. Just beyond this stadium you can glimpse Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners baseball team. It is a noted architectural wonder with its silent retractable roof that moves into place if foul weather threatens games and opens for sun breaks.
Thanks to everyone who supported Seattle Daily Photo through four rounds to the semifinals in Metroblogging Seattle's "Blarch Badness" poll of best blogs of Seattle. It was very kind of you to vote through all those rounds, and fun to be included at all. The two finalists after all that are baseball-related blogs. How appropo for a city that loves its great sports teams. Congrats.
This just in, 12:45 PM: Well folks, "It ain't over 'til it's over." ~ Yogi Berra. Metroblogging Seattle has put us back in a run-off vote for esteemed third place against the other semi-final candidate that got slammed by one of the baseball blogs, West Seattle Blog, one of my faves that made it through to the end (see its sidebar link and those of some of the other wonderful local blogs I've come to love). . .but, go ahead and vote for Seattle Daily Photo by clicking here if you would care to ;-) "It's deja vu all over again!" ~YB
