Impressions of the Space Needle

When I moved to Seattle in 2006 I loved seeing the Space Needle every day and finding its distinctive silhouette peeking above or in between buildings. Then the love affair started to cool off.
A friend of mine visiting last month said I should draw it from all sorts of different angles and at different times of the day. The advice is making me look back up again, stopping to observe how a curtain of clouds makes it disappear or simply staring to figure out how to best draw it.
