Sunday Photo(s)

It's almost the end of June, and it's been one of the more gloomy Junes of late. While visiting the Seattle Asian Art Museum early this month, I took some exterior shots. Here are a couple of the tower that sits near the museum in Volunteer Park. The first is from the north:

from the east:

Then we arrived at the museum itself:

The entrance is guarded by a pair of stone camels, like this one:

By the time we got out, it was pouring rain, and so we didn't feel like staying long. I took an obligatory photo of the Space Needle through the funny statue:

And one of the resevoir:

I tried to take a picture of the carp pool, but it was caught in a space-time distortion:

The pool is actually circular, but for some reason the software I used to create this panorama didn't want to believe that. The carp seem to have survived the experience, though:

As did we. What's inside? I'll show some of that next weekend. Meantime, Dana Hunter has her own photos to share.

As always, click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Have a good Sunday.

It's an interesting building. To me, it looks like a huge oil drum made out of bricks.
