What’s with the circular crop? Not a crop. Today I found myself with a couple of hours to kill in Seattle before heading to the airport. I wandered over to a pier and saw a hi-spy viewing machine – one of those high-powered public binoculars, only free instead of coin-operated. So I trained it on the Seattle Space Needle to get a closer look. I got this image by delicately pressing the lens of my camera to the eye piece of the hi-spy. This took many tries because the super-high magnification of the binoculars meant that the slightest nudge would shift the composition – and I wanted this baby symmetrical. I finally got it.
For reference, here’s what the needle looked like with the naked eye.
