Municipal Tower Top

Municipal Tower Top

It's an odd shape in architecture, at least to me. The roof line of Seattle's Municipal Tower is distinctive from any angle. If you view it from the north or south elevations, you'll see that the sloping roof on those sides is transparent. You might remember this image of the base I featured in SDP last spring.

Join me in wishing a happy 3rd anniversary to Eric of Paris Daily Photo, who, without ever dreaming it, founded a global city daily photoblogging movement and anticipates his one millionth unique visitor to PDP today. Bon anniversaire, Eric!

Please vote for SDP in the grand final round of the 2008 Tournament of Blogs by clicking here: Metroblogging Seattle will close the poll for best Seattle blog this Friday at 5:00 PM Pacific time. Many thanks for all your support!

Well you had me going with this one, Kim. I confess without the text I'd be at a complete loss. Wonderful long lens shot and the perspective is great. Nice photo! Coincidentally I rode right past this tonight circling the block on my way to a city council meeting next door at city hall.

Always seemed rather Phalic to me, Second and Seneca being the Flacid cousin to this building and of course Martin Selig giving Seattle the finger with the Columbia Tower. Just sayin'.
