sixth avenue in on sixth avenue in downtown seattle

Sixth Avenue Inn, Seattle

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

I almost didn’t publish this photo. It’s got some obvious composition problems. There’s something about the high-rises looming over this short little motel and the empty space in the foreground, and the clouds that made me publish it anyway.

  • well, composition-wise, this looks okay to me.. the motel in the foreground, skyscrapers and swirly clouds in the background.. all in all a good shot.. :)

  • i’m trying to find the composition problems too. maybe you mean the car leaving and the traffic signal. i don’t find either be bothersome. i love the cross walk lines and also as you say the buildings looming over the motel. gorgeous blues too.
