A couple years ago I was stopped at the light at Boren & Pike at night staring through the four giant columns of Pillars Park that were erected in the 1960s. Down the slope toward the Needle I could see Elephant Carwash's pink neon sign turning and sparkling way down there, and I thought to myself, "I've got to get a good lens and come back here for this shot on a clear night." Well, now I have the lens, but hey, that view's not going to happen again due to that building going up on the right. Dang. The pillars of Plymouth Pillars Park were intended to frame this view of the slope down to the Denny regrade, up Queen Anne and out to the Olympic Mountains. When the cranes finish their work, what will be in view?Metroblogging Seattle's Tournament of Blogs voting booth for Seattle Daily Photo is here.
