Errata: I have kindly been informed that the gentleman pictured above is not a bike messenger at all , but a Seattle safety patrol officer. . . -K. 12/9/06. Nathalie mentioned bike couriers, and we have them here, too. This one is standing outside of the Seattle downtown YMCA reviewing some document. The YMCA is a completely refurbished building (2000) with some lovely interior period details from the 1930s left for show (like a bank of wooden telephone booths). The Gates Foundation helped with the project, and you can see some details by clicking my More Seattle Stuff page.
I liked the way the horizontal and vertical rows of brick echoed each other from this corner vantage point. Does the brickwork pattern on the building across the street remind you of anyplace in Paris? bike+courier bike+messenger bicycle+messenger bicycle+courier Seattle+bike+messengerSeattle+YMCA
