Upstairs / Downstairs

Upstairs / Downstairs

A librarian is working away upstairs as a patron proceeds downstairs. Simultaneous views of multiple floors are possible in many places in the incredible layout of Seattle's Central Library, completed in 2004. This is a curving stairway down to the 3rd floor which is known for its red reflective surfaces. You might dream of tomato soup for days after spending time there, or perhaps recall a childhood impression of going into the gullet of the whale with Pinocchio :-).

Wow, what a surreal image. I love that. Believe it or not, I've only been inside the DT library once ... shortly after it opened. Perhaps I should visit again?

That's beautiful, Kim, and a true eyecatching shot. I'm glad you noticed this angle.

Provocative image, Kim.

That is such a great image. Must be a wonderful building!

Thanks, guys, it is an amazing place for lovers of modern/contemporary/international architecture. Chuck, if you decide to go, I'd love to observe you in action and see what catches your eye and how you'd set up your shots.
