"Wouldn't You Like to Have Fun, Fun, Fun?"

"How's about a few laughs? I can show you a (. . .boom, boom. . .) good time! " You just have to look in the right place. A lot of people pass this window and never "see" it. If you are in Seattle with small children, a good bet is the Fun Center next to the Space Needle at Seattle Center. It has indoor bumper cars and arcade games and is near the Center House food court. Here in it's window I caught the reflection of the Ferris wheel and carnival rides outdoors. Have a great Saturday, everyone!

If you would care to support SDP in the semi-final round of Metroblogging Seattle's best blogs of Seattle poll, please vote here. Kinda hard to believe SDP made it through any of the first three rounds with some very fine blogs, so thanks for that! It's been fun. This little photo blog will no doubt go down in this round to the many baseball fans of the Lookout Landing stats blog. Hey, did I mention I have a family member that dated Randy Johnson when they were students at Livermore High School back in the day? Go Mariners! ;^).

I love reflections. This one is especially fitting.
I voted for you. It seems you were't matched up against a similar blog. The other is a baseball site. Although a seattle team, its like comparing apples and oranges! Both good blogs but totally different catagories!

Thanks a bunch, Susan. Once we get behind a lens, seeing becomes different somehow, and reflections are everywhere.

Yes all the blogs were of different types. Mine was the only strictly photoblog, although one I much admire, Settle Bonvivant, by a woman named Viv (who is fluent in French, does a food blog, and is a wonderful photographer) . . .I wish she'd join us as a daily photo blogger sometime. The whole set up of the polls was kinda strange--some superb blogs were not even included. But, it was just for fun and totally not serious. The other semi final race also involves a Seattle Mariners baseball fan site, and so it appears the two baseball-related blogs will battle it out for the final round.
Thanks for stopping by, and for voting.

Looks like fun - the round lights bring a sense of action to the photo. Funny too because I also posted a ferris wheel window reflection on Feb 21 although my photo is not as exciting as yours!

I have a passion for reflections and this is awesome! The contrast between the grey and uninspiring concrete and the lively and colourful scene opposite is just magic. Three cheers for this one!
