I love the unusual balance of this image and how the sunspot makes you feel like you are right there in the park, feeling the filtered sunlight.

This park in the center of Philadelphia can be very crowded throughout the week as most of the people who work in the area eat their lunch there and on weekends, families congregate there so that children can play in the dry fountains and on the lion, goat and frog sculptures. The leaves on the trees are changing to gold and orange hues and the weather is perfect to enjoy with a hot cup of cider or hot chocolate.

This image will be printed 8 x 10" with a white border so none of the original is cropped out on archival photographic paper and will be signed by me and dated on the back. Group a couple of shots together for a Rittenhouse Square Park or Philly display! The photograph will be signed and dated on the back.

Historic Info: "Rittenhouse Square, one of William Penn's original five, was known as the southwest square until 1825 when it was named for the astronomer-clockmaker, David Rittenhouse (1732-96). This amazing man of universal talents — one of many in 18th century Philadelphia — was a descendant of William Rittenhouse, who built the first paper mill in America in Germantown. Professor of Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania and inventor of the collimating telescope, he was also president of the American Philosophical Society and the first director of the United States Mint.

The first house facing the Square was erected in 1840. During its next century the Square kept its residential quality. In 1913, the architect Paul Cret, who was one of the men responsible for Benjamin Franklin Parkway and many of its buildings, designed the Square's entrances, central plaza with the stone railings, pool and fountain. To have lived near or on the Square was a mark of prestige. Today, private homes are gone, but it still counts for something to live on the Square. There are several houses still standing, but they have been converted into apartments. With cooperative apartments and condominiums displacing private dwellings in the last three decades, some of the Old Guard still live on here — in these homes in the sky rather than family mansions." -www.ushistory.org
