Taken a few years ago while I was visiting with my son and family. On the eve of the 10th anniversary of this photoblog I thought I would look back for a moment. This is a morning shot, with some fog in the background. The sidewalks were designed in another era, where there were fewer cars and more pedestrians.
I can’t take full credit for this photo. My wife took it after a night of snow. I’m guilty of plagiarism, sort of. I spiced up the photo a bit in PS Express.
Anyway, looking East from our deck, towards the Cascade Mts., which are not really visible.
Years ago, this was the Public Health Hospital on Beacon Hill, in Seattle. It has had many tenets since those days, when people without health insurance could go for medical care. For a few years it served as Amazon’s Headquarters. Now it is occupied by PacMed called Pacific Tower and is shared with Seattle Central Community College as a training facility.
If you look closely you can see touches of Art Deco in the building design. Considering what sort of design styles are used today. glass and steel monoliths, I find the look of this building amazing to view.
