Seattle Skyline Photos: May 2006

The photos in this collection were taken on Sunday, May 21, 2006. These photos were taken in Downtown Seattle from the Wells Fargo Center.

At the top of the building at 1101 2nd Avenue is a logo for Washington Mutual. While the bank closed in 2009, the logo still remains to this day.

At center is the Seattle Municipal Tower. This photo was taken through a dirty window, hence the image quality.
