The Drake

The Drake, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

Constructed in 1929 as a luxury hotel, the Drake was once the tallest building in Philadelphia. I've always thought the architecture of this building, especially the top, is just fantastic. I would love to go up top and out on those terraces, I'm sure the views of Philadelphia are fantastic.

I would have liked to include more of the building in this shot, but I took it as I was leaving work, and didn't really take the time to get a clean shot of the building. The Kimmer Center was actually blocking everything below what you see in the picture.

This is an HDR image taken from 3 exposures, processed in Photomatrix and then in Photoshop.
