Rainier Tower & Taxi

Rainier Tower & Taxi

A night view looking up University Avenue reveals the lighted base of Rainier Tower (full view at More Seattle Stuff) and beyond it the revolving 5th Avenue Theater sign. The lights in the bare street trees are still keeping things bright on this dry winter night, and I loved seeing their sparkle on the taxi's window.

Nice night shot. I love the fact that the little white lights adorn the trees downtown year round. It always makes me feel a little Seattle magic to be there at night for dining, theater, dance, concerts, whatever.

I love its gravity-defying curved base! And the city lights, of course. :)

Rainier Tower, with it's tiny base, has always seemed to defy the rules of gravity. I've always been partial to this building and my hat is off to the architects and engineers who designed it!

I agree it's nice to see the little lights in the bare trees downtown. Glad they are still there and not only during the holiday season.

Congratulations on your stats!

Many congrats on your 300 followers, Kim. No surprise to me with the quality of your photographs and commentaries that explain everything so beautifully and personally.

I just love the lights and colour in this shot. it's so vibrant and full of life somehow.
