Today was a beautiful day to take a stroll in Philadelphia. The nicest day of 2005. Sunny with temps in the mid 60's. We had just gotten through a series of heavy rain storms causing massive flooding. Anyways hope you like the photos.

3rd + American


18th + Walnut

Great photos. My favorite is this little hamlet. Thats a great place to live. Also a friend told me that on a clear day you can see the skyline of NYC in the Philadlephia Hot air Zoo Baloon . Is that true or just an urban legend? Isn't that the zoo baloon in the second picture below?

Thanks for nice comments guys/gals.

Philadweller hopefully we'll cross paths one day , you can give me some tips as I'm just starting out in photography. One thing I otice is that you take a lot of people/ city pictures. I was out yesterday down around Rittenhouse and it was a mob scene it was a photographers dream but for some reason I can't do close ups of people, they look at me like I'm a stalker or private investigator or something.

What's the trick?

Anyways here's one more that I didn't have time to load from yesterday.

the trick... turn your camera backwards and pretend that you are shooting in the other direction.

Good plan. Very devious.

Unfortunately I'm out in the suburbs (delco) but I love coming into the city. Hopefully soon I will moving into the city.
