Not only is Gas Works Park well known for being used as a location for movies such as Singles and 10 Things I Hate About You, it also has the most interesting analemmatic sundial I have ever seen.
The sundial was created in 1978 by Chuck Greening and Kim Lazare. It’s located in Gas Works Park on top of Kite Hill. It’s a 28-foot circle made of multicolored concrete embedded with a mermaid, astrological signs, sun, moon and shells and so on. You can tell the time by using your body as as the gnomon, with your shadow you can figure out the time and season.
Gas Works Park is a unique landmark and one of the best places to take pictures. If you are interested in architecture you’ll definitely enjoy the mixture of the old gas plant with the new infrastructures. Gas Works Park wouldn’t be what it is today without the work of Richard Haag. One of the most, if not the most well-known landscape architect in Seattle. He’s the only architect to have been awarded the American Society of Landscape Architects Award for design excellence twice (once for his design of Gas Works Park).

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
