Seattle Center

Seattle Center's Fisher Pavilion

May 05, 2007 | Seattle

I was asked to take photos at a fundraiser being held at the Fisher Pavilion in the center of the Seattle Center. As the night wore on, I wanted to be a little more creative, so I took a step outside to capture the feel of the location. I'm not sure what's up with the green lights on the Space Needle on this evening - I believe they're usually an uncolored light.

The Seattle Center was built in time for the 1963 World's Fair held in Seattle. We have the Space Needle and our monorail to thank to this great event - although the monorail never expanded beyond its 1.5 mile track, its still a fun tourist trap. The Fisher Plaza in this photo was built after the World's Fair - I'm thinking in the past few years. I've heard, but never seen, that it's used for ice skating as well.
