The big red sign in the lower left of this photo tells you what you are looking at. The SODO (South of Downtown --or pre-2000 when the King Dome stadium was torn down, South of the Dome) area of Seattle is home to light industry, businesses, shipping and train freight, retail outlets, restaurants, performance spaces, artists studios, and utility providers. Here you see some container cranes overlooking Elliott Bay as a Washington State Ferry makes a crossing with the snow dusted Olympic range dominating the skyline beyond. It was raining in scattered places when I took this shot.
