Caught in a sun spot on a cloudy day, one of St. James Cathedral's bell towers glows between buildings in the waterfront skyline. St. James is situated on the western slope of First Hill and celebrated its centenary in July. This Renaissance-style cathedral, once the most visible landmark on the hill, it is all but obliterated from view by the high rises along the downtown waterfront. Also visible in this shot is the two tiered Alaskan Way Viaduct that carries thousands of cars each day along the perimeter of the waterfront. This view looks east. Tomorrow I will show you the view looking west from behind those buildings!
