wowow beautiful pictures and interesting subjects.
good work @ pwright1 and thanks for sharing.

i've noticed that fruits there are more expensive than here in vancouver. where are those fruits stalls located? I'm guessing they're at farmers' market?

Pls. check:http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=772856

Thanks

Wonderful pictures, I especially like the ones with the skyline, the mist, the mountains and the sea. Seattle's geographical location seems absolutely wonderful

I'm intrigued by that "Fremont Troll". I've never heard of it before.

It's under the Aurora bridge in the Fremont neighborhood. That's a real Volkswagen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremont_Troll

Fremont has two other sculptures that are equally well known locally. One is a statue of Lenin that was purchased in the East Bloc, and the other is "waiting for the interurban," which is four or five people plus a dog waiting at a former trolley stop, and is generally dressed up by whoever thought up something funny or wanted to make a point. Like many Seattle neighborhoods, it's a countercultural area gone half yuppie.

The stadium reminds me of the Sydney harbor bridge. Glad to see you posting larger photos.

I'd kill for a chance to walk the stadium trusses, like the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
