A new icon for the city

The Eagle

I walked across the new Olympic sculpture park in Seattle again this evening, watching everyone taking photos of the Eagle sculpture. It's been so fascinating to see how this one particular piece is really almost emerging as a new iconic image of Seattle. Flickr (which has tons of images of it) and the proliferation of digital cameras have certainly led to the ability of a new view of a city to crystalize. It's a gorgeously captivating piece, on its own, and mesmerizing in its location. Experiencing it person makes a strong impression, especially at sunset.
