Philadelphia: Girard College

In the search for new areas around Philadelphia with some interesting history and great photo opportunities, I decided to visit Girard College.  It is a private campus, an historic boarding school actually, so I was not allowed to wander around too much.  Security did allow me to grab some shots of Founder's Hall, the central building of the campus that served as the main 3 story classroom building when it was built in 1833.

Duncansville: Scenery

While home for Christmas, my mother decided to take us out for a little hike and to explore some nearby historic areas.  I don't exactly recall the names of these places or their historic importance but I managed to grab a few nice shots.  I know the scenic look out is called 'Chimney Rocks' and the stone bridge is part of an old railway system.  Most of these are HDR images to bring out the texture and color; sometimes the mid-winter photos can get a bit drab.
