The seven Instagram images below were all taken on my smartphone and I took them all on drives around downtown with my family. My sons love drives around the city because they have a fascination with tall buildings, the Space Needle, and the Ferris Wheel on the waterfront. I wonder where they get this love from, hmmm...maybe from me?
When my family of four goes on a drive around downtown, my husband takes the wheel. I am then the DJ, the snack and Sippy cup person for the kids, and the cell phone snapper. I never expect to take any photos, but sometimes I do. And sometimes I'm lucky to get shots like these.
|The view from 6th Ave, driving towards the Space Needle, is a one way street and is lined with new, sparkly skyscrapers on each side.|
|The Columbia Tower, the tallest building in downtown Seattle, looms up towards the sky.|
|One raining afternoon we rented a Car2go Mercedes SUV for forty minutes just for fun and took it for a spin to downtown and back. The kids and I loved the sunroof and I couldn't help from shooting a photo of the Space Needle through the sunroof.|
|Here it is...the newest skyscraper in downtown, under construction, is located next to the Columbia Tower and should be completed soon.|
|Seattle's Ferris Wheel, called the Seattle Great Wheel, draws long lines during the day and is a popular attraction. During the night, it lights up beautifully and is a nice addition to the waterfront.|
|Also on 6th Ave and under construction are the Amazon Biospheres. When I first saw them I was taken aback, wondering what they were. Seattle is changing fast and I'm glad I'm here for the ride.|
