This was taken about a month after the Space Needle got painted it’s original orange color.

My favorite part of this photo is how the color of the little red train switch in the lower-left-hand corner is a close match to Alexander Calder’s Eagle sculpture. It seems like a superfluous detail, but for such a utilitarian object, it real does command a lot of attention – nearly as much as the sculpture.
