I was on a sunset walk-about last night and this is at the top of Capitol Hill looking west from 14th Ave. I was trying to take a peek-a-boo picture of the Space Needle (see it in the distance?), but I had a wide-angle instead of a zoom lens on my camera. Then this vintage car pulled up next to me, and it just sat there. What is going on? I wondered, then noticed that the driver had his little digital camera perched on the steering wheel, also taking a picture. And so the 1957 Chevrolet Belair Nomad (I think that’s the model of the car) upstaged the Space Needle and became the topic of the picture instead : ).
The TV snap shot from this morning shows a much nicer view of the Needle .. and a temperature of 56° F (13° C). So it looks like summer is on its way out. (I promise not to make a habit of taking pictures of the TV. I sometimes take pictures of billboards in Hong Kong and my colleagues with me would say ‘You’re taking a picture of a picture’. And I would say ‘So?’).

definitely a 1957 Chevy. The late fifties into the early 60s was the era of fins!
