Not to Scale


I took this view of downtown Seattle from a park on Queen Anne hill. My co-worker and I drove around the area for over an hour looking for somewhere with a view, after the photographers selling their work at Pike Place Market told us where their pictures were taken from. I have named this picture "Not to Scale" because I was very disappointed by the size of the Space Needle. In all the pictures from this common vantage point, the Space Needle looks very high, while in fact it is actually rather short compared to the other buildings, but happens to be much closer.
