I Heart Macro: Seattle Sidewalk

These little purple squares are actually windows into the underground tunnels below the sidewalks in Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood.
I initially thought they were some kind of shell by the way they were layered and the tone of the purples, but finally got down close and figured out they're glass.

This isn't my picture, but it's a view of the lights from below in the tunnels:

That's about all I can muster on this lazy Sunday morning.  haaaaaaaaa 


  1. what a beautiful sidewalk, and how lovely it would be to walk along in the tunnels

  2. I love the glass tiled sidewalks in Seattle, I love how they look now but I sometimes wonder what they looked like when they first put them in.

  3. Wow - I would never have thought those were glass tiles for a sidewalk. How clever! Gorgeous shots and thanks for sharing!

  4. Nice shot~! Like Kristi, I'm wondering what they looked like when they were still new ...

  5. How pretty! I bet the tunnels are wonderful with the light reflecting through those beautiful tiles.

    Have a wonderful week!

  6. Awesome indeed! I had no idea there was such a thing as a windowed sidewalk! Super cool...

  7. Is that really beautiful! Just Love your photo!!!!

  8. Wow that is too cool! We just have plain old concrete sidewalks here. It would be fun to walk along something like that. Awesome!

  9. That is super cool! Those don't look like such an amount of light would come through them. WOW, just wow!

  10. They are beautiful!!! I also thought they were shells - what an amazing idea!


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
