Masonic Temple

Stained Glass – Philadelphia – April 2015

If it were allowed, I’d get my tripod and wide angle lens and spend the day (or 2) there. Unfortunately it was a 1 hour guided tour, snap away. There were seven themed rooms and the halls and stairs were amazing.

Oriental Hall – Philadelphia – April 2015

From the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. The ceiling in the second picture is made up of thousands of pieces of glass. This building was featured in the movie National Treasure – although our guide assured us there was no treasure there. The decor and architecture is unbelievable.

Art Museum – Philadelphia – April 2015

Spent last week in Philadelphia, only had my point and shoot with me, so the birds were elusive. But thought I’d share some random shots over the next couple of days.

This is the art museum, first shot from Love Park – then closer, which is more famous for having been in the movie Rocky, than for the fabulous works of art it contains. Including Carnival Evening by Henri Rousseau – my favorite artist.
