'P' is for Pretty People at the Public Library (abc Wednesday)

Snapshot of the RED floor, Seattle Central Library, 4 May 2010
I'm away again, this time for a really quick business trip to Seattle...but I did have a chance to see one of my favorite buildings - Seattle Central Library. The whole structure is visually interesting and well worth a visit.

Looks like high fashion to me. How can anyone get any reading done in that library?

I was about to say that Palos Verdes has a library like Seattle's, then saw that's where you were! You went without me! :(

But no matter; we'll meet somewhere!

Great reds here! I have a red post today, too!

It feels as if you are in a scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Never in a million years would we guess this is a library.

I'm with Mr. E...don't think I could get any reading done here!!! It would be like drinking about 8 cups of espresso and then trying to concentrate...

Impressive - hardly looks like a library at all. Maybe I'll get there someday...

It certainly doesn't look like a library, more like a high fashion salon or some such place.
