Andy's Angles: Courthouse Tree

I can't really say I'm a fan of Courthouse Square in Scranton.  It's far too much concrete and granite for my tastes.  I will admit that it looks great-- in the dark, and at Christmas.

I recently promised a Christmas tree photo, and here it is.  It looks identical to last year, and that's OK.  Why mess with something that works?
Now that big retail has left downtown or is behind the walls of the mall, government has to step in and brighten up the place-- create a festive atmosphere, a destination.   Mission accomplished.
The shot above is with the Lackawanna County Courthouse at my back, looking toward the federal building and North Washington Avenue.
