Seattle Center

Seattle Center is the 1962 World’s Fair site, repurposed with a children’s museum, IMax theater, Chihuly glass and garden exhibit, iconic fountain, monorail to downtown, Key Arena, and Seattle repertory theater and opera houses. Walking there on a beautiful summer evening to see Dunkirk at the IMax, I came upon these metal flowers backlit against the sky. Loved the pic, and I love these tall flowers too — as you approach and touch their metal stems, you get sounds, different ones from each stalk. Kids are of course entranced, but I am too.

  1. My aunt and uncle took me to the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962. We ate at the restaurant on top of the needle and I believe it made a complete rotation around in about an hour. Very cool.

  2. for Joyce: That restaurant still exists — very pricey but with a great view. I love hearing that you were here for the Fair!
