What a great image. I really like this. Has a lot of movement.
Thanks! Once again, I had done this in color at first, which was striking since the metal sculpture is bright red. But now I prefer the black-and-white version as it lets the viewer focus more on the shapes.
You've really captured the imposing, top-heavy presence of this structure one feels standing at it's base. The black and white makes me feel I've slipped back to the World's Fair days.
My parents took me to that fair. The top of the needle was orange in those days. I remember weird snippets: One pavilion had an elevator shaped like a clear glass ball. The operator would say, "Step to the rear of the sphere, please."
Hi Roger--so much history you've captured--the icon of the 1962 World's Fair and I think that is the EMP in front. I worked in the Space Needle Restaurant two summers after (during?) college back in the early 70's. So many memories brought back by your wonderful photo!
Thanks, Kathryn. What a fun place that was for a meal. I suppose working there, it might be fun keeping track of your tables, since they were slowly revolving!
