The Athenaeum of Cincinnati

I went to the Athenaeum of Cincinnati to take some shots since it was such a beautiful evening. The architecture of this building is absolutely amazing! The wonderful thing about the Athenaeum is that it has so many beautiful faces. When taking pictures in the evening, reflections and light illuminates off the rows of windows. In the winter, around Christmas, there is a gorgeous star that hangs at the very top of the front entrance that dominates the entire scenery. In the Spring, the blooming trees add to the landscape and balance out the vast structure and grounds. There are so many beautiful angles and surfaces to snap wonderful shots of. I love coming here to pray in the chapel. It is peaceful and still.
