The main subject of a photo is generally front and centre, but for this challenge, we just offer a peek at it.
I’ve gone back to Seattle and 2011 for my images – I saw a flyer while we were there from a photographer offering to take visitors to the perfect spot to take their perfect pic of the Space Needle. I wasn’t remotely interested in doing that – may as well buy the postcard if you’re getting the same shot as everyone else!
Instead, I enjoyed taking photos of enticing glimpses of the icon.
I took more than these three…I didn’t go inside it, but I loved seeing it. The first pic is from our hotel window, the last is its reflection on a wall of the Experience Music Project.
We spent a lot of our time at the Seattle Center – we could walk there as it was close to our hotel, and there was plenty to do and see, even apart from the Taking Punk To The Masses Nirvana exhibition that was on at the time. We went to a kids Bandcamp concert, and a free show outdoors one afternoon. I had a peek at legendary Seattle photographer Charles Peterson who was there with family, and photographing the bands – a major highlight for me!
