This, and many other sculptures and fountains adorn the areas on and around the "Rocky Balboa" stairs at the front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

This is a portion of the huge fountain that sits just in front of the famous stairway that leads up to the Museum's main entrance. It was shot (handheld) the night our photo club met up to shoot the Open Air Light Show (ended yesterday). You can see two faint search lights above the sculpture, and in the distance, the colorfully lit Comcast Building and the white-lit City Hall, two miles away, at the end of the Ben Franklin Parkway (the Art Museum is at the opposite end of the road).

Have to rush out of here for an appointment in Philadelphia. Will try to catch up this evening.

This museum is about halfway between the Art Museum and City Hall, near Logan Square. It is the newly built Barnes Museum (Art Collection), which was relocated this year from its home in an old mansion in an urban area just outside Philadelphia. The roof features an amazingly lit "dome" (don't know what else to call it) which creates a shadowless environment in the rooms below, that makes the viewer feel as though he is viewing the art in a heavenly place. I had been to the old place twice, but yet have to get into the new one. Not to be missed if you are visiting Philadelphia.

The "Open Air" light show was in full force in the skies above Philadelphia on this October night.
