Looking straight up at the crossing dome of the Cathedral.
The Cathedral is one of the most eminent structures in Philadelphia. Its construction took from 1846 until 1864. Designed in the style of Italian Renaissance, its interior is richly decorated.
The architect was Napoleon LeBrun, a man whose career spanned the entire 2nd half of the Nineteenth Century and included such famous buildings as the Metropolitan Life Tower in Manhattan.
This is one of the many great photo opportunities available on my Philly Photo Safari. Plenty of room is still available for my next one on April 21, 2013 at 1pm. See my photo tours page for more details.
