Space Needle/Seattle Center (Part 1) - Seattle, WA

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Today I have photos from Seattle Center and on top on the observation deck of the Space Needle. I will be splitting these photos into 2 parts. Hope you enjoy these photos.

First off is a photo of the Space Needle from near its base.

Reflection of the EMP Museum at the Seattle Center. I thought the reflection made a cool abstract shot.

Always love to do a black and white process of an abstract shot. :)


Here is a photo of the EMP Museum. You can see where those colorful reflections come from.

A panorama of the EMP Museum area with the Seattle Space Needle on the right. Sadly the panorama stitching cut off the Space Needle a little bit. Shot from same location as above.

I lined up to head to the observation deck. Here are a few photos from when the Space Needle was getting build. 


It was just in time for sunset when I got to the observation deck of the Space Needle. Off in the distance is Mount Rainier.

I spent my time on the observation deck photographing the city and the sunset at different angles.

Here is what the observation deck looks like.
