Space Needle before the Storm

Space Needle before the Storm. Growing up near Toronto, ON, and the CN Tower, the Seattle Space Needle isn't all that impressive from a size stand point, but what is impressive is how Seattlites have made it part of their culture. the SeaHawks 12th man flag flies from it all the time, and whenever there is fireworks, the Space Needle looks like it's about to explode as the fireworks shoot out of it sideways. This shot was taken at the end of a nice day as the clouds rolled in to bring that beloved Seattle rain. :) View the larger version on Flickr
