I like these lines! Great texture on the water-stained doors as well.

Thank you, Ryan, Daniela, and Mary Alice.

Yes, it's large and imposing. I wanted to photograph it because it is important and historic, and I liked the lines, too. But I wasn't aggressive enough to push my way to a good, unobstructed viewpoint! So I had to hold my camera far out to one side to move it past elbows and other cameras, and it took several tries to get a picture I could use.

Greetings, Marilyn
