Photos requested[edit]

We have only one photo of the Seattle Great Wheel, and it's mediocre quality, at best. File:Seattle Great Wheel.JPG. It's one side view that has a moderate level of detail, and only roughly conveys the locale where the wheel sits. At a minimum, we'd need one decent illustration of the immediate surroundings under the wheel, and at least one photo of the view from it. The purpose of a Ferris wheel is as a vantage point, after all. And since on one side you see downtown Seattle, and on the other you see Puget Sound, probably two views from the wheel is a minimum. More practically, it will probably take around a half dozen to a dozen quality photos before we can say this subject is adequately illustrated. As noted in the comment, we ought to have nighttime views of the lights, and the interior of the structure, and more.

It is much easier to achieve that if this article is not deleted from Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Seattle, Washington, so that when Wikipedians are out collecting photos they won't skip past the Great Wheel. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 04:45, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
