colavitos ghost: whoa, that building is really evil.

Rumor has it that the roof was slanted like that 'cause of some tax credit being offered for solar power when it was constructed - but that it hadn't panned out, but that's why there are the two opposing slanted surfaces. I couldn't say one way or the other, but that's just what I heard.

Unfortunately you didn't get the 3 openings/slats in the front that actually give it the "Darth Vader" name.

J: When I lived in Seattle, I worked in that building.

Nice pics! I remember a time when that was the Seattle branch offices for First Interstate Bank.

Urban Tedium...

The urban tedium. The concrete sameness. The worn-out boredom of semi-urban. Everywhere we go looks the same. Here is there. There is here. Where is there? Concrete and steel. The touch, the feel... Of Urban Sukhi wears a turban, on his head. Grows plants...
