When you think of photos of Spokane what do you imagine you are going to see?
What photo really says “Spokane” like no other photo you have ever seen? Is it downtown, or the waterfront? Is it the park or the view from the southside?
When you think of Spokane you think of the stacks of the Steamplant Grill, or the Waterfront with the clock tower. But when you see the view of the drive into Spokane from I90 it really stirs up some amazing memories.
This seems true more so for that view than any other photo of Spokane I have seen. People identify with the feeling of almost being home after a long drive. The lights of the city welcome you as you head down the hill. Parents wake their kids up and tell them to look at the city they are almost home. This view does more to remind of you Spokane than any other. Maybe this is because you grew up with this view. Maybe it’s because of the sudden change from the flat drive to trees, a hill, more traffic, and then the discovery of the city waiting for you; welcoming you.
I have taken a lot of photos of Spokane but nothing speaks more to the viewers of the photos than the ones of Spokane from I90.
When I Rick Clark uploaded the photo to Spokane Memes it was shared 800 times!
People were reminded of their first time in the city and when they were a child coming home after a long trip.
I invite you to see the photo for yourself and if you wish you can own a copy and hang it up on your wall.
Let me know what memories it awakens in you by leaving me a comment below.
