Impressive Architecture

It's been a while since I've come across a building that I get down right giddy about, a building that I want to come back to again and again just to look at. Yesterday, I found one of those buildings.

I mean, look at it. It's big, it's impressive, and it's just plain awesome. Where is this Romanesque architectural spread? San Francisco, CA that's where. It's the Palace of Fine Arts which houses a theater and the Exploritorium* and is surrounded by a wonderful pond and lawns perfect for juggling.

Although I felt like a slack-jawed gawker doing it, I couldn't help but snap shot after shot. Hopefully next time I come back, all the construction will be done and I'll actually get to go inside!

I went there on a field trip once (the exploratorium, from what I remember, was pretty awesome) and I was also very impressed by that structure. I have always remembered it. It was built for the world's fair I think in 1915.

isn't this the one made out of plaster for 1915 expo, being redone in permanent material?
