Looking at the Columbia Tower from First Hill. Look, I know that skyscrapers are inherently phallic but I think this one is really goes overboard. That rounded head! That vein!
Two types of stone. From the second floor up the building is covered with asphalt shingles. I didn't take a photo of those. Ugly.
Window in stone building. Notice the deep sash.
Old brick roadway, exposed for some roadwork being done. I don't know if it is going to be covered up with asphalt again. Hope not.
First Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Seattle. Narrow streets, stone buildings, and mature trees.
I-5 forms the boundary between First Hill and downtown Seattle. It doesn't physically cut off the neighborhoods; city streets and sidewalks go underneath the structure.
