Looking through a storefront in downtown

DSC_0169_cropped_900x900_altered Today's photo shows the inside of the storefront in the corner section of The Public Service Building at the intersection of SW 6th Avenue and SW Salmon. What I really like about this one is what you can see when you look completely across the empty space and out the two windows. The building you see there is the Multnomah County Courthouse--this is the back side of it, on SW 5th Avenue.

The shape with the slightly curved supports, in the left window, is a newer bus shelter. In the right window, the shape up above the car that looks sort of like a car without wheels is actually the old-style bus shelter, the only one left that I know of on the downtown Transit Mall which is on SW 5th and SW 6th Avenues. I miss those old-style shelters because I liked the quirky look of them. I haven't been by here in a while, but the last time I looked it was still a walk-up sidewalk cafe.
