Capitol Hill & South Lake Union Night View

Looking southeast from Bhy Kracke Park over South Lake Union's Cascade neighborhood and Capitol Hill beyond. The Museum of History and Industry's new campus at the old Naval Reserve Armory in the new South Lake Union Park is visible in the left foreground. That swath of gold with the red light trails is I-5 and delineates the start of Capitol Hill. If this scene includes your neighborhood, try and find your window!

I've enjoyed your blog every day for some time now, but today your spell checker must have gone south!

Musium vs. Museum
Navel (belly button) vs. Naval (maritime)
deliniates vs. delineates

You must have been in a hurry.

Regards,
Ken

If I were to live in a big city again, I would definitely want my window to be seen in this picture!

Thanks everyone, and thank you especially, to Hope and Ken. Yes, well Ken, I'm my own spell checker, and I was going south, literally, or at least attempting to head that way speedily ;^). It was post haste due to a last minute request that I fit in driving kids to school on my way to work. Thanks for catching my glaring glitches. I can either type fast or spell, but cannot do both simultaneously on four hours sleep and come up with the answer to, "Mom, where's your phone?".

Kim Kim Kim,
Coming here is a pure delight.
I love this night shot but what can I say about yesterday's gorgeous shot!

And then there are all your mystery photos, the street portraitist's moving arm, the street musician's saxophone, the extraordinary "alternative view" - they are just flabbergasting.

It really makes me want to visit Seattle in your tow.

What a beautiful shot! There is always something fascinating in the view of a night city...

Wow. I saw your blog and found the piece of history your camera recorded. It is a blink, stopped dead-still, exposing a moment in time and the beauty you saw in the city lights at night.

Neat to see Lake Union Park (note, no "South" anymore) in the night. I work in the Armory, but the view is quite different from the bird's eye perspective. Thanks!

I've always wondered this about Seattle: Why is there a capitol hill there? Can you illuminate the answer to this one for me?
