Yesterday's Reflection

Yesterday's photo of the Smith Tower was taken looking up at the west face of the building. Today's photo shows you a bit of the topmost east face and the distinctive cap of Smith Tower as reflected in the west windows of the new (2003) Seattle City Hall. Behind those tall windows is one of the city hall's contemporary design marvels, the "blue glass passage," (click the link to see it) so named not for the windows you see, but for the blue glass flooring of a suspended indoor walkway behind those windows.

Yesterday I mentioned the great views to be had by taking the free elevator up the Smith Tower. It takes you to the Chinese Room on the 35th floor, a charming place for small wedding receptions as well as breathtaking views of Elliott Bay, the Space Needle, skyline, and the Pioneer Square area. Click here for a 360 degree view of the Chinese Room and it's window views at sunset.

FIND YOUR FLAG! Scroll down this page on your right, and just past the links to the worldwide City Daily Photo Blogs and the City Photo Blogs you will find my fun new little page feature. Try to spot your country's flag. I appreciate all your visits, and especially your comments. As I try to visit other DP sites (over 140 now!) it's so great to see everyone's photos of so many wonderful places around the globe! Wishing you a great weekend (and a continued great holiday for those still on vacation)!Posted by Picasa
