TRAILS OF HISTORY.

_DSC1549

This is the famous Independence Hall located in Historic Philadelphia, PA.

Inside this Historic structure is where the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776.

This structure is one of the most favored places to visit.  Tickets must be purchased to see the area, where the Declaration was signed, that has been restored back to it’s orginial look.  When I shot this Image it was early morning before it was open.  Not many people were here.  This was a good time to capture a Image.  By the time I was ready to leave, the area was filled with hundreds of people.  The Park Rangers are kept busy all the time.

Security around here is very tight.  Just in front of me, and out of the Image, was a fence that had a sign on it that said “No admittence without a ticket”!  You should not go beyond it, or you’ll be stopped.  No firearms.  Bags can and will be checked before entering the area.  Police are everywhere.  Security camera’s are watching every move!

One of the things I like to do, is just sit and watch people do what they do.  Sit and watch the world go by.  People are here from all over.  Different cultures and nationally come here to see this.  I have observed that most visitors obey the signs that tell what you can do and what you should not.  However, there are some who just don’t care and do what they want.  Not good, in my opinion.  Rules here are done for a reason.  People throw trash on the ground, and don’t take time to throw it into bins placed around the area.  I hate seeing that.  If caught doing so, you might be fined.

Thank you.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
