the Stranger likes to give me challenging assignments, and being a glutton for adventure i’ll always oblige. for this assignment they asked for an overhead shot of a construction site to feature on the cover. i decided to put a shout on facebook to see who could help me find a location, and a friend offered his building as a spot. so i hopped the lightrail downtown and found myself ascending to the top of the Viktoria building, a stylish condo in the heart of belltown. as i stepped out onto their rooftop patio on the 24th floor, my fear of heights started to kick in. i was practically crawling towards the rail (which i swear wasn’t taller than my navel), and managed to reach over the ledge to get a clear shot of the crane perched above the city. very glad i brought my fisheye lens to really capture the whole scene.
