Looking out from the Seattle Needle is the busy, noisy, hustle and bustle of downtown. On this particular January day, the weather was blustery and cold and you can see a white plume puff from a factory in the distance. Yet from this perspective I felt protected from all the elements, as if in a bird’s nest, “Up On Top” of the city peering down. I also like this angle because it creates a viewpoint that lets the observer a big and sometimes scary or intimidating city from a safe distance. I suppose others might find this outlook to be exactly the opposite if they have a fear of heights. Let me know what you think!
