Spokane Washington Inland Northwest City

Here is Spokane, I hope you like! ;-) I took these shots over the last few months.
Some are blurry from the old camera and some are better with the new one. Thanks for looking!

Thee you go! Hope you enjoyed these.
Anybody get any Montana Cities?

Nice pics! The Davenport Hotell building is gorgeous. So is the big white brick building (US Bank?) as well.

Wow! A city I never really even thought of...Nice art deco and linear architecture buildings. The downtown looks pretty much like what a little-big-city's downtown would look like. Thanks for letting us see it--I'm sure most of us never have.

Great pics. The 2nd is more impressive after a few hours traveling east on I-90 through the Columbia Basin desert sagebrush country. The 2nd pic is the first sight you see of the Spokane oasis.

Here is a few more to share with you. I took them all on Saturday May 10, 2008 between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM.
For those of you who like Spokane, I hope your saving these. I dont know how long I can keep them on here before Photobucket gets concerned LOL. :jester:


Look at these guys. Spokanes finest helpers. They were saying that somebody forgot their chairs. There was a parade just finishing up and I was going to go to the top of the Riverfront Parking garage. There was so much traffic that I just parked and got out. Maybe next time. Is that one guy looking at me? lol



Just a few from around town now.

















Spokane was fairly busy for a lazy Saturday afternoon. There was a parade and I missed it and got there as it was shutting down Grrrr. Another missed opportunity. In 2010, Spokane will host the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships. I will have to get down there for this one.



I dont know what this building is but its really neat ;-)



One of my better building pics this day. The Fernwell Building and the Bank of America Financial Center.



This is the U.S. Bank Building. I have other pictures of this on another thread.



The Ridpath



I just love that big flag poking through back there.



Interesting view! Where did all the people go?



Way cool building! I read somewhere that Spokane once had an ordinance that all buildings built in the downtown area had to be brick. I also agree that it was a great rule because Spokane has so much potential beauty to draw on giving it a charm all its own. Its not just a bunch of steel and glass. Old has its own charms! Brick is my personal favorite!



Here is that building I like from a side view. Its a bit tilted but you get the point.



I really wondered what the big antenna was for. But this one is nice.



Well, I hope you liked these. I am sorry my threads are so big but I know there are a lot of folks out there who like to think back to when they lived here and want to see how things changed. I have MASSIVE amounts of pictures stored up that I have shot myself but havent shown. As always, I would sell the whole lot of them on DVD's to any Spokanite either living here or elsewhere.

Until Next time,
Dwight

Thank You

Thanks. There are a few more nooks and crannies around here I need to go to. I just like to share this town. I dont know what it is about this place but it is a great place to live.
