walruses

Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul.
~Ernest Dimnet

The first time I laid eyes on the Arctic Club Hotel (here in Seattle) was a delight.  Finding walruses combined with gorgeous architecture is spectacular.  This past Saturday, J. and I made our way to the hotel just before the sun was setting.  I hope you enjoy these shots.
