Stormy skies over Philadelphia

I took these just after a big thunderstorm passed over the Philadelphia art museum(where I'm standing). I think the odd angles of the building in the distance look pretty cool.

  11. Hmmm! I think some of your sky is hovering over my neighbourhood and dampening my golf schedule. You can have it back you know.

    Actually, I think the heavy cloud cover adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the building. The jet is just like a garnish!

    I want spend more time looking at your prison pics. Haven't had enough time. Great post James.
