Last night in Seattle, and this capture my mood perfectly.
Somewhat sad, but calm and at peace. Looking forward to what the future brings.

Street artist and French photographer JR was commissioned by the French government to plaster photos of ordinary people throughout the Panthéon, so they may “enter the temple devoted to illustrious men” like Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo and Émile Zola. For the final installation, JR installed 4,160 anonymous faces on the scaffolding on the exterior of the landmark, and within the mausoleum itself.
