Apparently, the other Public Market, which is across the street from this one in Seattle, isn't sanitary, or at least that is what we are supposed to think. Actually, the name came about since horses were not allowed in, which in today's age would cause activists to fight for horse's rights.
Despite the stacks of books, this is a restaurant, not a book store. These books are either on the making of Gumbo, Jambalaya or yearbooks for Southwestern Louisiana State University. With those as a theme, you know you are in the south as this is Ragin Cajun a famous restaurant in Houston. Not sure anyone reads these books but they give the place some character. Great food too.
Its a tourist shot but it is hard to get a shot of an iconic landmark and not make a tourist shot out of it. At least it is my tourist shot. Actually, this is the first time that I have ever seen the Space Needle. It is not very prominent when you are in downtown Seattle.
The first thing you think of when walking into Derby Square Bookstore in Salem, Mass is don't get killed by falling books. Then you think, "I have to buy a book from the bottom of that stack". Not sure I love bookstores like this, but they are fun to browse through. Unlike the appearance, these are all brand new copies. Anyway, something to check out if you are ever in Salem.
Right place, right time, camera ready. Was heading in to a restaurant for a presentation in Andover, Massachusetts and caught a view of a beautiful sunset over a building down the road. Does it ruin the picture to say that the steeple was sitting on top of a gas station? Oh well. Hopefully, this shot is worthy of going over 100,000 page hits today on the blog. One of my new favorites.
