May Theme Day: Where in the World Could This BE?


Photo & Text Copyright 2007 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

Happy May Day! Today is theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers around the globe. We've been asked to post a photo of a place within our city that looks like it could be from another city (at least that's what I THINK the theme is--seems to be some confusion, so some folks are publishing photos from other cities, so this should be fun!).


Whenever I glance at this recently restored cupola on the campus of the University of Washington, I'm always reminded of the morning silhouette of a similar bell tower visible from my third story window above the roof tops near the Sorbonne in Paris. This was the first structure on UW's current campus, so perhaps in that era architects were looking to European historic styles.


Now please take a world tour of the 80 other destinations below to see how other CDP members interpreted this month's theme. Sure to be fun and fascinating. Try to leave a comment wherever you visit, and remember time zone differences affect when photos are ready to view.

I have no clues where it is. It is a nice photograph of where it is.

My Theme Day portrait is of the "Peashooter" and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

This is a wonderful photo...but I really like the long and short of Seattle and it will not let me comment. The colors are wonderful! Where were you when you shot this photo.

LavenderLady. . .taken from Queen Anne Hill, Kerry Park Lookout. Thanks! I don't know what happened with the comments button on that post. . .Blogger still seem like voodoo to me--very inexplicable.
