    Built near the turn of the 20th century to be a luxury resort, the Pagoda was soon turned over to the
    City of Reading after going into foreclosure. Since then it has been a landmark and tourist attraction as it sits a top Mt. Penn overlooking the City.

    This was shot with my Nex-7 and my newly acquired Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8. The lens is amazing btw.

    Restoration continues on the building and hopefully the structure will be maintained in the future. Nice images by the way. It presents a bit of a problem to get the desired angle but these do well. Images at night can be very attractive if you feel confident about the surroundings.
