If you've visited Seattle, you are familiar with this area along the waterfront, but perhaps from a different viewpoint. Just past that beige building to the right of the highway is the backside of the Pike Place Market complex and the adjoining Victor Steinbrueck Park. If you live here, you probably have driven along this elevated highway, the Alaskan Way Viaduct (Hwy 99), many, many times. And, no, I do not advocate shooting while driving; this was taken while riding shotgun. :-) The other buildings you see are mainly Belltown's condominiums. I always like seeing the two buildings at center which slope and draw the eye up along their stacked atria (can you see the trees peeking out the skylights?)Please vote for SDP in the grand final round of the 2008 Tournament of Blogs by clicking here: Metroblogging Seattle will close the poll tonight at 5:00 PM Pacific time. Many thanks for all your support!
