Welp. I was not anticipating that at all. I did not plan on taking a photo of the Space Needle yesterday and I did not plan on a photo going even more viral than my foggy Space Needle photo before the Super Bowl last year.

I drove a little bit faster in hopes of capturing the last light of the day. I made it home and was not very satisfied with the photo and only posted it to Twitter. And that is where it all started.
The Space Needle retweeted me, then the Mariners, then Sportscenter, CBS Sports, Bleacher Report and other media news outlets. The Mariners and Macklemore posted it on Instagram and then CNN contacted me to ask if it were be possible to air my photo in their newscast and they did along with it showing up on other networks like HLN.
Overall I am very thankful for all the shares, receiving photo credit this time and will always be thankful for sports-theme Space Needles. And thank you to Mary Do you making me go take the photo to begin with!
