100th Post

I really like this picture. The sky isn't clear and blue but I find it mysteriously beautiful. It looks like the statue has a heavenly spotlight above it.
I wish I knew who the statue is supposed to be. I do know that I took this picture with my old camera next to the Philadelphia Museum of Art last month. There were thunderstorms coming and going.
