PhotoHunt--Theme: Space


The PhotoHunt home is TnChick.com.


PhotoHunters this week are thinking outside the box to come up with photos interpreting the theme of Space. I'm just going with something somewhat traditional.

Seattle has been one of many locations central to the aerospace industry. In 1962, the city celebrated the future with the Century 21 Exposition--Seattle World's Fair, which left in place the iconic landmark, the Space Needle.
Near Seattle's Boeing Field sits the Museum of Flight. Among its exhibits here is Space Ship One.

The Museum of Flight was a much more interesting experience than I had expected. We were there during Spring Break last year.

Interesting to see Space Ship One. Nice photo angle, too.
I'd love to visit that Museum of Flight sometime.

Love the space needle shot. For some unknown reason, I like shots looking up.

Aerospace is a fav of mine, since that is the industry that pays my bills!! :-)

The Space Needle may not be the tallest but it is the most classy.

Cool shots, K! I featured the Space Needle too, but from a different vantage point (aboard the ferry). Love that upward angle. ThanX for mentioning the museum of flight. Sounds like another great potential eXcursion for the piXies.

I like your take on the theme. I'd enjoy the Museum of Flight, and your photos are mouthwatering.
I love your first photo though - futuristic shapes against a beautiful sky!

Space Ship One looks cool, even if a bit retro somehow!

Amazing what they can hang from the ceiling! I bet the view from the Space Needle is awesome. Great take on the theme!

I haven't seen the Space Needle myself. One day. . . I have been to Seattle twice -- one to the airport where we picked up others to go to Anchorage, Alaska and I didn't get off the plane during the half hour that we could. The other time was a couple years ago when I visited my son't fire department. We went by ferry and then drove straight to his firehouse.

I like your photos of the Sapce needle and the airplane one also. I recently got to go to Pearson Airport Museum to celebrate Lincoln's 200 birthday and saw early plans there also. Usually, there is a fee but it was free that day.
