Day 147 – Beautiful. Gorgeous. Wish You Were Here

on

(name that movie quotes if you can.)

We spent another gorgeous day doing touristy things in Seattle.  And, while the others went up the Space Needle, I stayed on the ground.  I’m a lame-ass when it comes to heights.  Not all heights, mind you, but some.  And, I know getting to the top of the Space Needle would have probably ruined my day regardless of if I made it up there or not.  I try to think of it as knowing my limits, but I’m a lame ass – regardless, I digress.

So while the others enjoyed a spectacular view, I took pictures from below.  My most amazing picture that I stumbled across – and thanked every deity that my camera was ready to shoot – was this one:

I cropped it so you can see it better… Yes, I caught a hummingbird mid-flight – twice.  Had on the right lens and everything.  I have missed several opportunities in the past…several….but not today, obviously.

Here are some other random shots from around the Space Needle.

    So that’s what you were doing while ASM, Garbonzo and I went up the Space Needle! I’ll have to post the picture I have of you looking like an ant waaaaaaaaaay down there on the ground. Lame ass… *wink*
