Love the shots from the space needle, the mid-century homes, the older buildings, the classic cars, the people, and of course the skyline. Nicely done.

I need to spend more time in that great American city. Nice set, brought a smile to my face on this otherwise bleak Portland day.

Absolutely wonderful thread, LSyd! Glad you finally made it to Seattle. Pretty captivating, isn't it?

This is pretty much my favorite American city.

Killer set. Some real jaw-droppers in there.

I got sent to Seattle for work once too. It was excellent.
