A Seattle View You Won't See in 2010

When I took this shot of downtown's historic Ranier Club and the round domed First United Methodist Church, they looked like miniatures nestled among giants. So I thought this tilt-shift treatment might be fun to emphasize the obvious. These landmark buildings will have a new neighbor of glass and steel next year right where the light colored brick building is: the 43 story Fifth & Columbia Tower. It will be multifaceted and smallest at its base (a concept seen in yesterday's photo) to help these historic buildings maintain some sense of space around them. (See this amazing design here and this exact view two years from now here.)
