Week Eight

August 3 to August 9, 2019

Some historic sites this week.

On Saturday I visited the Thorp School; build in 1936 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.

Monday, I was downtown and shot the Smith Tower from the base. The iconic landmark has been photographed thousands of times. I don’t recall seeing one from this angle.

The balance of the shots took advantage of Seattle’s sublime August light. With wildfire smoke the last two years marring our skyline and choking our lungs, this year has been a nice and welcome surprise.
