Noodling the Needle

Noodling the Needle

Shot through the red noodley sculpture (Olympic Iliad by Alexander Liberman, installed 1984) near the entrance to the Space Needle at sundown on a chilly but sunny first of February. This is another in the series of playing peek a boo with the Needle. Being one of the most photographed structures in the world can be a bit ho hum, so I try to get glimpses not so common of the Needle peeking at me over, through and around things. Still, I think there is hardly an original idea to be found for the now 50 year old icon. "Make it new, make it new," cried the parrot to the mocking bird."

Very very cool! I love how the edge of the needle is almost perfectly parallel with the red sculpture!
