Ladd Observatory

By LexEquine
This capture made a few weeks ago, with my K100D Pentax shooter, is an image of the "Ladd Observatory," located on Hope Street in Providence, Rhode Island. The observatory is owned by the Ivy League College, Brown University, and was established in the early-mid 1800's, as a telescopic observatory & part of their astronomy program. It is opened to the public for 'a few hours,' every evening on Tuesdays.

I am looking forward to visiting the observatory soon.

Ciao~ Peter

Well composed image, peter. The tree gives a good frame to the building as well as putting interest in the bland sky.

good composition here Peter the starkness of the tree against the sky contrst so well against the colour of the building nice one, great texture in the tree as well
