Liberty Place, Philadelphia

I'm taking a break from flower photos today although more (alas)
will be forthcoming in the near future.

A couple of weeks ago Chiaroscuro and I spent two
days in Philadelphia. We had a good time, although we had one
frustrating morning in which we walked to the Academy of Natural
Sciences where I remembered having previously visiting an indoor
butterfly garden. Unfortunately, the garden was gone, and so were
our plans for taking butterfly photos. We then walked to South
Street to visit a favorite used bookstore, which not only had a large
collection of interesting books but also a resident cat named Earl
Grey. The store was also gone. At least we got some exercise.

I took this photo about a block from our hotel.

The inclusion of these three structures in this frame is really fantastic, and I like the way your exposure treats the building on the left. Great architectural photograph.

Surely the two of you are doing a lot of traveling!!!

This is a difficult shot, done very well. I have always problems in framing tall buildings, but here you solved the equation right. And Matt is right, the dark building with the sky reflections in the window adds a lot to the composition.
