The Second Bank, in the Snow

Second Bank Snow

This is the second bank of the United States of America. Taken on a Sunday when the snow came down in flurries and dumps and there were few people about. This is, in my opinion, one of the most photogenic buildings in Philadelphia.

Though I haven’t taken too many photographs of it, I have the impression that telephoto views of it are best, showing the true scale of the arches and its beautiful walk-up. I will have to improve on this next time. What do you think?

  1. It helped me to have you explain that you were struck by the beauty of it, which I got once you told me but did not get initially. I know you have done a lot with buildings and their aesthetics but I think commentary really helps as an educational supplement to help me see what is in the picture rather than just reacting to it. You could do a multi cultural series with your asian pictures. Your comment made me take a closer look at your photo and I appreciated it much more the second time. Ed
