Historic Chinatown Gate

This beautiful huge gate spans S King Street near 5th Avenue S and will be two years old in February. It marks the western boundary of old Chinatown in Seattle's International District. More funds are being raised and it is hoped that a matching gate can be constructed at S King Street and 12th Avenue S. You can read more about it here.

Nice shot. I think I'd have a problem fitting that amazing gate into a single image.

That's an impressive and gorgeous gate! Looks great at night too!

We saw this on our last trip to Seattle. It really is beautiful. You can see it from some distance too.

This gate was a surprise for me when I visited the International Distict this summer....hadn't seen it before. I hope they do put up others.

That's a spectacular shot and a wonderful perspective, Kim! They are re-developing our Chinatown here, so it will be interesting to see what our new gate looks like.

You've managed to capture this gate so well! I have never been successful with it. I think I need a wider angle lens.

This looks so much better at night. I didn't realize it was so nicely lit. Thanks for the tip -:))
