If you had a chance to visit downtown Spokane over the last few weeks, you might have caught a glimpse of Avista’s Post Street Substation, decked out in red, white and blue in honor of the 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Most people refer to his building as the Washington Water Power building near the falls, which is a fine identifier really, given the big green words on the roof. Interestingly enough, the building is a working Avista substation that helps deliver clean, renewable hydroelectric juice to downtown Spokane.

Local photographer John D. Moore, who seems to have a knack for capturing the beauty of Spokane when the lights go out, grabbed a few shots of the WWP building that turned out great. I caught his photos on his blog, http://spokanescenes.blogspot.com/.

Moore graciously allowed us to share his photos here and then told me though e-mail, “In my view, we live in a beautiful place and if I can make a few people envious...then I'll feel good about that.”

He’s right.
