The Space Needle-Weekly Photo Challenge

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”

This was not an easy challenge for me.  I couldn’t come up with anything at first then once I did I began to question and overthink my choice but I finally settled on a symbol.  I began to think of something that means something to me, something that represents more to me than what people initially see.

The Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

Growing up in a small town family trips to Seattle were like trips to a new world, one with lots of people, opportunities, and art.  Almost every trip involved a walk through Seattle Center to see the sites including the Pacific Science Center and the Space Needle.  There is so much more to Seattle than the Space Needle but I always feel both excitement and comfort when I see it, like I’m finally home.

Now as I try to find a job in that area I realize it continues to represent the city I love, opportunity, art, happiness, and a chance for change.  Hope you enjoy!

One of my all-time favorite shots. This is the Space Needle with Chihuly glass in the foreground.

The mural ampitheater. I was so excited by this shot because this was the first day I’d been where no people were on the stage.
