Winter Reflection

Winter Reflection

Photo & Text Copyright 2008 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

It's one of the most photographed structures in the world, so everyone's always looking for a new take on what's become an iconic image. The Space Needle reflected in the tall windows of a Seattle Center theater building at sunset. Click here to see other ways I've attempted to capture the Needle. Which of these do you like best?

New Round: Please click here to vote again in this latest round if you would care to support Seattle Daily Photo in Metroblogging Seattle's 2nd Tournament of Blogs. You can vote once each visit through next Wednesday to help SDP qualify to advance to the esteemed final round where it will undoubtedly be obliterated by a rabid sports fan blog. ;^) (Hey, did I ever mention that the Hawks are awesome and that I have a close relative who went to school with former Mariner Randy Johnson?) . Thanks for giving SDP a fun ride while it lasts!

The Space Needle has been around a long time. I remember when I was in Research and Development at NCR in the early 1960s that I worked on some dynamic displays shown at the World Trade Fair held in Seattle then and the Space Needle was new or newer and the theme of the event being featured in everything.

Your photograph of it is nice and probably one of the better ways to display something so common to your area.

Very nice, the golden looking space needle in those blue shining windows.

Hi Kim,
This capture of the Space Needle through a reflection is awsome and very original. I really like also the architecture of the building that serves as a mirror.
What a great picture. Bravo!

Thanks for stopping by at Brighton's Daily site. and thank you for you kind comments - and WOW what amazing work you're doing over here!!! I love Recycle Reuse and Gawkers.

Tell me - how did you get the rating widget on the site? and how do you get such large pitcures - I'd like to do the same.

All the best

Beautiful work, Kim

My goodness, what a fantastic photo! I am so glad that you took it and decided to post it. Thanks for your visits to my blog. I'm not the best one to ask about ABC Wednesday. Google Mrs. Nesbitt's Place and comment with her about it. She's a really nice woman.

Anon, Thanks!

Abe, Thank you. The structure is 45 years old now and an absolute icon. I don't think there are any new ways to portray it, only new ways for me personally to have seen or experienced it. There are something like 800 digital photographers linked through Flickr in Seattle now. Everyone of us tries to capture something fresh about it.

April, Thank you.

Dorothee, Geologychick, Jelvistar, & Chuck, Many thanks for your kind comments!!

OCOC, Thanks, and I hope your shoot at the bridge goes well.

Dean, Thanks. I'm glad you liked those shots. I'll answer your questions at your site.

David, Thanks very much!

Lynette, Thank you! And thanks also for the information.
