Eighth & Seneca in Seattle

Most weekday mornings I walk by a big dig at Eighth and Seneca, kitty corner to the travelling lecture venue in Seattle known as Town Hall.

If I go out of town for a few days, or even just skip my routine for a day, I'm shocked at how much the construction project has progressed.

Pictured is a panorama shot (thus the warping of the footprint for the tower-to-be) assembled this morning.

Whenever I consider construction sites like this in Seattle, I wonder whether the late Christopher Martin Hoff would have painted it. I don't know that Eighth and Seneca would have itnerested him. Check that: had it piqued his interest, he would have found a perspective that wasn't obvious but would have unleashed a new way of seeing.
