Seen from, and in, West Seattle: Seahawks spirit as playoffs near

Unless the fog rolls back in sometime soon, you should be able to see this firsthand looking right across the bay. Carolyn Newman sent the closer look above – and then Jeff Pond shared the wider view, below:

You might also remember the building, as we did, for its Valentine show almost six years ago.

And just as we were about to publish those two views – another sign of spirit came in:

Doree, who shared the photo, says she and her fellow “lunch ladies” at Denny International Middle School are going all out to cheer the Seahawks on.


  1. That is so beautiful.

  2. If memory serves, the 12 was a little sharper when the building had a single tenant – WAMU. 2006 era…

  5. Is that a 12? That does not look like a 2.

  7. Yes, why not criticize someone for hours of work they did to make folks happy?

  10. A huge thank you to Carolyn and Jeff for the photos! This was a trial run for us – our first time putting up the 12 since we purchased the building. Your photos will really help as we refine the lighting for our 2nd trial run scheduled for this Wednesday night! We’re aiming for perfection on Game Day Eve… Wish us luck and keep the photos coming!
