    I fly a lot for my business, and often take photos out the window. I shot
    this coming in to Seattle from a meeting LA yesterday just before noon.
    Kind of a neat view.

    :)

    Very cool shot... it's not often they fly directly over the Space Needle like that!

    Thank you. I Agree - it was a fun approach. Normally at least a mile to the east, and higher
    up. Tried to get a shot of the stadiums, but a stupid cloud was in the way :(

    I do have a great shot I need to find and post here - the day the Seahawks
    won the championship and were Super Bowl bound, I was flying in from a NAMM
    show in Anaheim and took a shot over Seahawks Stadium at the exact moment
    the game ended, and in the photo you can see a ZILLION camera flashes going
    off! Amazing timing... I'll see if I can find the shot.

    Oh....we were concentrating on the Space Needle? :eek:

    I was trying to figure out what structure next to it was...the gold, red, and white blob.

    The EMP - Experience Music Project - Paul Allen's [failing] tribute to Northwest
    bands - except that it doesn't include Hendrix (family pulled the plug since they
    own all of Jimi's rights), and all the 'grunge' bands (Nirvana et al) are in a single
    small case. Most of the rest is devoted to unknown 50s and 60s bands, only
    one of which was famous - The Whalers (Louie Louie).

    I was once on the elevator to the top of the Space Needle with a German couple.
    The husband asked, "vas ist dis big blob - ist this building that collapsed during
    construction?" My kids and I all laughed, and explained the bizarre architecture.

    I wrote a blog about that day here: http://tinyurl.com/mag7vd - if you're
    curious about the EMP 'blob'.

    :D

    I agree. I was really disappointed the first time I saw it. I think it detracts from the rest of the Center.

    Allen's money doesn't mean he has class.
