a walk through downtown Seattle

Not the entrance to the Dragon's Lair but to the I-5 Reversible Lanes. 
First Congregational Church. This was one of Seattle oldest churches, and was used as a church until last year before the building was sold. Obviously, it's being renovated for business but I'm very pleased that the building's character remains intact.
The Seattle Public Library, designed by Rem Koolhaas. People love it or hate it. I love it. This view is from 5th Avenue. 

Water pipes on the side of the Virginia Mason Medical Center building. Reminds me of a hand.
A secret garden! The garden is a full story below street level, so you can only see it from the sidewalk. 
There are some really frakkin' steep streets in Seattle. Hope your brakes are good.

Chinese temple gate in the International District. This was built about a year ago.
