Let us continue our tour around Springfield, Illinois and now go into the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. This museum was full of artifacts and photos from Abraham Lincoln and his time in the White House. This photo is actually a stiches together series of photos into a panorama of the War Gallery. There were hundreds of original Civil War photographs there.

The older section of the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY houses all the ancient art such as from Rome and Egypt and the classic paintings from Rembrandt, Monet, and Cezanne. It is a classically made building with a large central area that houses a 1700’s pipe organ that is functional and has concerts that are part of admissions to the museum frequently. Here is a panoramic view of the outside:

Across the street from the Buffalo History Museum and behind the Albright Knox Museum of Art is a huge continuation of the Frederick Law Olmsted Park that surrounds a very large lake. Here there are lovely boardwalks that lead right down into the water, boats for rent and eating pavillions. The shoreline is lined with Weeping Willow trees

Inside the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, they had a giant multistory “Hall of Statues”. These were copies of all the famous statues from all over the world. I had to take four photographs and stitch them together into a panoramic view but I could not get to the exact center as there was a large statue in the way. The first view is a horizontal panorama.

While inside the Greek Classical Architecture of the Albright-Knox Museum of Art in Buffalo, NY I took some panoramic views of the main rotunda and of the skylights on the ceiling. These were many handheld shots that were later stitched into a panoramic view in software.
The main rotunda bent perceptively because of the wide camera lens:
I then tilted the lens up to get just the ceiling in a panoramic view:

As we step into the Boathouse at The Hedges in Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks, we come across some real wooden canoes hanging up and ready to use. These are wooden ribbed and planked with canvas covering in the traditional manner. Even the boathouse is made of logs with many still having their bark on.
