Casting Some Tall Shadows in Seattle

leave a comment »


It is late afternoon in Seattle. I’m back in my hotel after spending time looking around the city. It had been cloudy for much of the day but by late afternoon the clouds had started to break.

The sunlight is bathing a cluster of apartment buildings, medical centers and office buildings in its warm glow.

But my hotel is casting a long shadow across the freeway and over some of the structures on the other side. And so is an adjacent building.

Chances are I am the only person noticing the contrast of light and shadows. They are such a part of everyday life that few people take the time to notice, other than photographers and artists.
