52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

Week 7 #21. Industrial

11 Comments

A couple of weeks ago in the beautiful city of Bellevue, Washington, we were admiring the marvelous views from the rooftop garden in the apartment building in which our son and his girlfriend live. As in many cities across the U.S.A., there is a fair amount of construction in the area. Recalling the “Industrial” theme, the cranes being used in the erection of a new building a couple of blocks away appeared to be a suitable match. I took the first photo during an earlier tour of the common areas, noticing Mt. Ranier hiding in the background, tucked behind the buildings, and not very apparent in the hazy, late afternoon light.

A couple of hours later, we walked around a lower floor garden area shortly before the sun sank into Puget Sound. The construction cranes were obviously still present, but the vivid reflection of the remnants of sunset in the office windows made the scene quite memorable, especially with the darker skies emphasizing an imposing slice of natural beauty peeking between the incomplete and complete towers.
