Seattle by vhamine

Yet another shot from the Kerry Park viewpoint in heart of Seattle. The setting was perfect with low fog partially covering the city and the sky showing a range of colors. This image is a blend of 9 exposures. I wish that I had composed it slightly better though with the iconic space needle more toward the center of the image than so much to the left.

The Library Of Congress is the reference library for the USA’s Congress. It has the world’s largest collection of books, 35 million volumes in over 650 miles (1050 km) of bookshelves.

This image is a second look at the ‘Great Hall’ of the building. This is the last one from this series, thanks to all for viewing, reviewing and commenting!

This is a ceiling area from the ‘Great Hall’ of the building. It features, among other things, paintings of two women. On the left is a painting labeled ‘Tradition’ on the right one labeled ‘Erotica’. I have to wonder about that label!

A big thanks to Markus Sholz for providing a link to an online tour of the building:

This is another of the ceilings of one of the ten reading rooms of the library. These reading rooms are not all currently used for reading but some are used for exhibits. For example, one is used to display US President Thomas Jefferson’s collection of books which was offered by him to the Library of Congress to form the basis of the current library.
