Not Your Average County Jail Courtyard

If memory serves me correctly, I was standing in the courtyard of the King County Jail in downtown Seattle when I shot these sculptural forms and elaborate tile work and paving. There was a sphere, a column, an "X," a cube, a circle, a stair step, and many other geometric forms. Someone had a lot of fun designing and making this permanent display for public space.
