Philadelphia Museum of Art (Weekend Reflections # 47)

This is one of the large windows at the entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I looked up and saw a wonderful reflection of some of the pillars, the blue sky and the large red banners that spelled out "RENOIR" You can also see some of the museums details above the windows.

Wow, what a great shot, James! We alway need to remember to look up and look behind or we will miss some great shots.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

I could not tell this was a reflection. I thought you were standing behind the pillars and took a photo looking up. Only got the looking up part right. Fantastic capture.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Wow, this is majestic!

Elisa said...

Good morning James,
I´ve added my post, but it appears bad titled.
What a pity.
I don´t know how to fix it.
Best regards from Argentina

Beth Niquette said...

Hi again--I wanted to let you know that if you click on the link to my page--I've actually sent everyone to an entry I did a few days earlier than the rock heart. It is a photo of reflection from Huckleberry Bridge.

I was in a hurry to travel to where our yearly Family Reunion was being held--and I wanted to share Huckleberry bridge with everyone. It is such a magical place...

ruma said...

It is a grand building.
I recognize American strength...

B : ) said...

Holy cow! That shot took my breath away!
