That was essentially my reaction to walking into the Huntington Beach Central Library a few weeks ago (though it looks really nice), and I was reminded of it when I stumbled on this line in Lev Grossman’s The Magician’s Land. (No context for you.) Now I know why Katie laughed when I showed her the picture the day after she finished the book.
I transferred a bunch of photos from my phone last night and posted them to my Flickr photostream. This one’s the fountain in front of the movie theaters at The District.
