Robert Cameron Emmett Watson. This book has captured Seattle and the places around it, the raw threatening beauty of the Cascade Range and that of the Olympics, the great expanses of water, open fields, the great buildings, the almost blinding greenness (from the air), the tiny ships below, the virgin forests, the lights at night; a city that has fought to preserve itself, a city. that has, over the years, paid the price to maintain its own beauty, cleanliness and dignity, a city of which it was once said, lies well in the arms of the land

Above Seattle. This book has captured Seattle and the places around it, the raw threatening beauty of the Cascade Range and that of the Olympics, the great expanses of water, open fields, the great buildings, the almost blinding greenness (from the air), the tiny ships below, the virgin forests, the lights at night; a city that has fought to preserve itself, a city that has, over the years, paid the price to maintain its own beauty, cleanliness and dignity, a city of which it was once said, "lies well in the arms of the land." Robert Cameron's aerial photographs and text by Emmett Watson makes this a book you'll never want to put down.

I've never been to Seattle, so this book was a real treat for me. It is more a photography book than a text, and looking and reading through it is better than watching a HD documentary about the city.

I've never been to England, either, so I've now ordered a copy of Cameron's other book, "Over London". I only hope it's as good as this one.

This book has some cool shots of Seattle, but they are a bit older. I was hoping it had some photos of the Seahawks Stadium, but I guess all the photos were shot before it was built. Worth the $2- $5 but I wouldn't spend much more than that on it.

Seattle is set in a very diverse geographical region. This diversity provides for ample breathtakingly beautiful and lush photographs of the metropolitan area. Lakes, mountains, trees, islands, bays, rivers - this area has it all and is cleverly photographed in this Robert Cameron book.
The book is fairly up to date although citizens or connosieurs of Seattle may notice the dated-ness of the book by the conspicuous absense of some new construction in the downtown area and the changing condition of other areas of the city. If you like pictorials, this is a great one to own and probably one of the best of the Seattle Metropolitan Area. I highly recommend it.

This is one of Robert Carmeron's last books and it is one of his best. Seattle really lends itself well to this kind of photography, the city is so naturally blessed. The photography in this book is classic Cameron and the photos are so vivid. I recommend this book to anyone with an interst in this beautiful city or just an interest in great photography in general, you won't be disappointed.

Stunning quality; if you've been there, you will easily be able to pick out your favorite spots, despite the distance. The captions are a little dry, but the pictures make this aesthetic book one of value.

Everybody who has any relation to Seattle should have this book! To people who live there it shows their city from a different point of view. To people who like to get a detailed impression of the city and its close environment I really recommend it ! But this book (in my eyes) is not made for people who look for a "tourist guide".
