Berangere has sent us four photos of the Space Needle (or in it). She recorded them while touring Seattle with her guide Jean, shown here sitting in the Needle, now 49 years old. We may imagine how a visitor’s vision of the things we know as commonplace is not so tired as our own. For instance, seeing the top of the needle from the waterfront foot of Broad Street is mildly uncanny if you are not inured to the Needle.

Jean looks a lot like Clark Kent in this picture, I think.
Postscript: Also posing Jean at 6’7″ next to the Calder and the Space Needle is misleading.
