One Party's Over, Another's Just Beginning

The Party's Over

There is seemingly no one in the Space Needle, the site of Seattle's hottest New Years Eve ticket night before last. All the festive decorations are put away, and even the sky has turned gray and rainy (although the light spill often makes it look chocolate in photos). It is back to normal for another year, but it won't be quite a normal year for the Space Needle. A year-long celebration is just gearing up. There will be some big doings to celebrate it's 50th anniversary. Lots of transformation is going on below at Seattle Center. There was disappointment that a ginormous Ferris wheel (think similar scale to the London Eye) was not able to be installed as planned. Last night it was just as well because it was so windy it probably would not have been able to operate anyway. I'm surprised this shot came out as clear as it did given the cold gusts that pummeled me. I just had a mini tripod with me and the wind was shaking the camera so badly I called it quits pretty quickly. You can see what I mean below :-).

Windy!

It's a great photo of the Space Needle; will look forward to more photo festivities this year for it's anniversary. Especially like the chocolate sky. Speaking of chocolate...sounds like a good drink for this nippy morning.

Such a beautiful sight! Sorry I'm a bit tardy, but Happy New Year, Kim. May it be blessed, and all that you dream of.

It's a abundant photo of the Space Needle; will attending advanced to added photo ceremony this year for it's anniversary. Especially like the amber sky. Speaking of chocolate...sounds like a acceptable alcohol for this chill morning.
