Roaring High Above 15th & Chestnut

Roaring at 15th & ChestnutI was headed to a newly opened art supply store in what is known as Center City in Philadelphia when I happened to look up. Fortunately the lighting was good, and I had my compact camera with the terrific zoom lens, and I shot this fellow several stories up from the street. Fortunately this building hasn’t fallen under the heels of the “march of progress” as many others have only to be replaced by tall, mirrored, utterly uninteresting shapes. A lot of those types of buildings are sprouting up like metallic weeds. They may be interesting to a viewer from an airplane seat, but they are really boring to the pedestrian wandering below. Fortunately Philly still has some gems like the building above.
