Tina from Travels and Trifles is the hostess for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and the theme of Treasure Hunt is chosen.
I’m starting with a photo of the Philadelphia City Hall. I love old world architectures, therefore, this building feels like a treasure to me but most of all, I think it’s a treasure to the city. It is one of the most unique building I’ve ever seen and to be honest, I wasn’t even looking for it when I saw it. I was actually looking for Love Park, which is next to it. So it was a nice surprise when I saw the City Hall.
When you step inside and look up, you will find yourself looking at people seemingly holding up the columns. I thought that looks very cool.
I had to memorize every state capital in grade school, so how did I not remember that the capital of Pennsylvania is Harrisburg, not Philadelphia? Honestly, I thought the Philadelphia City Hall was doubled as Pennsylvania State Capitol. After a quick Google map search, I discovered yet another treasure in the state of Pennsylvania and was suddenly glad to had stayed an extra day near Gettysburg.
Pennsylvania State Capitol was different (good different) than the other state Capitols I’ve visited. According to the website, Teddy Roosevelt called this building “the handsomest building” and I must agree. It is very unique outside and in and I would call this a “treasure” in any book.
