PHOTOS of Seattle

Dear Seattleites! Could any of you post some pictures of your beautiful city and its nearby areas? It would be nice to see what your city looks like through your cameras' perspective 8)

Wow. Sometimes I think this city needs an architectural revamp but photos like that make me think otherwise (until I walk around downtown).

I see 1521 Second, Four Seasons, Olive8, 8th West, 1981 Street, Gallery, Mosler Loft, and few small buildings just sound of Columbia Center. Some new buildings I listed are not too obvious but you can see some of them on that shot.

Most of those buildings are behind other buildings, or can hardly be seen. I don't disagree that they do impact the skyline, just from other angles .

Every time I look at photos like the one i really wish we had a real 'super tall'.... Something that surpasses at least 1,200ft. Thats why it gets me real excited when i hear words like....TRUMP.

Trump Int. tower Chicago.....Amazing.

It's hard to believe that there are building out there 2x columbia tower

Oh' Very nice picture......WaMu center is one FAT tower completely blocks the Rainier.

Beautiful pictures!!! Great job!

SoDo SEA, I hear you! I personally think a several supertalls would be great addition to Seattle skyline. Trump Tower in Chicago is beautiful and attractive!!! Have you see Trump Tower in Toronto, Atlanta, Dubai, and Panama City? I think they're awesome and can't wait to see how they will turn out when they completed!

Yeah, you can't see an appreciable difference from west Seattle, but coming into Seattle on I-5 south, it is pretty dramatic.
