Odd view of Seattle


My hotel room is quite the place. It's in what I can best describe as a boutique hotel, and it traces a very large L shape around the corner of the building. This leaves me with huge windows almost everywhere I look, and some interesting lights and shadows as the sun moves across the highrise urban landscape.

I like how the stark lines of the blinds give way, if only slightly, to the muted streetscape below. I could have simply taken a straight-up picture of the street, but that wouldn't have been as much fun.

Your turn: Should I be uploading pictures to my blog at 2:15 a.m. or should I leave this fascinating Wi-Fi-blessed hotel lobby and get some sleep? I had a very productive work night, but now I suspect it's time to tuck the laptop away and call it a night. Yes?

No! No! More pictures! Sacrifice your sleep for our enjoyment!

I love the contrast between this one and the one in your previous post.

You shouldn't sleep when thousands of us are anxiously awaiting more photographic distractions from our own sleep! "We don't need no stinking sleep".

I always love your pics Carmi! such talent!

Indigo said...

I love your pictures, so post away, however ... if you feel the need to catch some zzzzz's, then by all means, pack up and go to bed.

I'm going to be the voice of reason here, Carmi, even though it's too late.

Please get some sleep; it sounds like you may need it.

Leanne said...

Hey Carmi are you going to have time for sight seeing or is it all work work work?

kenju said...

I think you probably need the rest, Carmi. Then you can post your little heart out later on.

Puritan guilt will get you nowhere in life. LIVE!

Carmen said...

Get some sleep, Carmi. You'll take better pictures if you aren't exhausted.

I always like your pictures!

Sleep is so overrated :) Your pics are amazing, so expressive.

Now, you know I have to ask this question...

"did you hit Starbuck's Yet?" or are you a really loyal Tim Hortons kind of man???

I love the photos, though sleep is an essential component of daily existence also :) Take care of yourself.
