Andy's Angles: About the Cover

This month's blog header features Gen. Thaddeus Kosciuszko.

Long story short:  He was a Polish general who helped the colonists win the Revolutionary War.  This is the month we celebrate Independence Day.  It makes sense.

I have mixed feelings on today's picture of  the general's statue on the Spruce Street side of Courthouse Square.  The statue is dwarfed by the tall clock tower.  On the other hand, it's possible to appreciate both the statue and the courthouse architecture.

However, I really do like the header shot.

I deliberately kept in some of the courthouse, trees, and flag.  There were clean shots of the general and the sky, but I liked the other items.  It gives the shot a little more depth, dimension, and visual interest.

Read up on the general.  Fascinating story.
