Seattle Central Library – Volume 2

Second installment in an ongoing series of images shot in and around the Seattle Central Library. You can view the first installment here

Those who enter the Seattle Central Library from its 5th avenue entrance are welcomed into a large atrium aptly named the Living Room. Glass ceilings rising high above provide plenty of natural lighting for this wide open space. Patrons are able to gaze up at the meeting rooms on the 4th floor and mixing chamber, where 400 computers are avaliable for public use, on the 5th floor. On sunny days, light dances across the building’s diamond shaped girders, casting wonderfully patterned shadows across the Living Room’s floor. I find this space particularly inviting on cold clear winter days, when the interior or the atrium feels warm and cozy, perfect conditions for finding a comfy chair and reading a book for awhile.

  2. The second image is a whole world, almost breathtaking!! LOVE!!
    They are all great, Jeff, but the second one………………….
    Must be a wonderful soothing place to visit and relax with a book… Or a camera….. Or several cameras….. 😉

    • Its a marvelous place to explore with a camera(s), often I forget its main function is to be a source of free information to the general public as I get lost in the beauty of the building itself. Thanks so much for the kind words, they are always appreciated.
