I hope you’re not tiring of the Palace of Fine Arts because I still have some images left to show you!
This main structure spoke to me in so many ways as you probably have gathered from the last few images I’ve posted of POFA. The light slanting in from the side looked mysterious, so I tried to capture that when processing the image.
You can really get a sense of how huge this place is when you see the people standing there.
The Palace of Fine Arts or “POFA” was erected in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to display works of art. This is one of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition, and it’s the only one still situated on its original site. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009.
