Photographer's Note

There are times when identifying the city, state and country where a photo is taken is rather unnecessary. Seattle is the only city on earth with a skyline like this, featuring a well-known structure which is so easy to identify.

The Space Needle was built in the early 1960's as the centerpiece for the 1962 World's Fair. A man named Edward Carlson originally sketched the tower on a napkin while visiting a coffee shop in 1959. The rest, as they say, is history.
