Skywatch: Curved & Linear Too


Curved & Linear Too
Photo & Text Copyright 2009 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.
This is the view of the tallest of the city's high rises, Columbia Center, and to its right the crown of its fourth tallest, the Municipal Building, as seen from under the the eves of Seattle City Hall, that visible diagonal in the right bottom corner of the photo. I took a photo a few years ago that captured this interesting conjunction of curves and lines of architectural elements, and this time, I tried to frame the negative space of cloudy sky with them. You might be interested to see some of the other tallest buildings that reach to the beautiful skies here, so click here to take a peek. Hope you are having a great Friday and that it is the start of a fun Valentine's Day, Lunar New Year, and (here in the USA) President's Day weekend! To see skies from all around the globe, click Skywatch Friday to explore.

Nice, Kim. Of course I would think so since I did a similar photo in early January ... but didn't post it-:)

Happy Valentines Day, if I don't make it back on the actual day!!
