Tonight’s Beautiful and Ominous Walk Through Seattle Center

Tonight I walked around the Seattle Science Center after a lecture at McCaw Hall put on by Seattle Arts and Lectures a.k.a SaL. It had been awhile since I had visited the Space Needle so I was glad to get the chance to see it and take pictures. Being in the Seattle Center at night had a mystical feel to it especially seeing Dale Chihuly’s  glass sculpture garden through the shrubs. The flowers below are next to the Seattle Pacific Science Center and give out a choir sound each time you pass under a flower which added to the overall sensation of beauty and ominosity.

I also got to see the fountain at night which is more beautiful in it’s own way. The fountain was shooting streams along to the tune of a ambient trance song with tribal vocals. This however wasn’t the spookiest part. It was the unmanned popcorn stands, lit up by the street lights that had the most strangely alluring value. They were freaky.

Overall being at the Science Center at night is relaxing and if you’re staying in Seattle I would recommend strolling through there. It’s very abandoned at night and very peaceful. Be sure to stay safe though.

Below are some more pictures from my walk. As you can see in the upper left is the popcorn cart I was describing that, to me, has so much personality. The monorail runs late too and its worth a trip to Westlake Center for the fun of the ride. I would suggest going on the weekend because weekday nights at the Westlake Center can be unsavory.
