Balancing Act

without comments

I tried telling these people to get down but they would not listen to me!  Then the security guards at the Comcast building told me that the people were part of an art exhibit…. ya, right.

Game Time Philly Style

without comments

Although it houses various city departments, The Philadelphia Municipal Services building is a must see on your next visit.  The inside of the building is not all that impressive, but the outside has gigantic game pieces and sites directly across from the Philly City Hall.

Love Park and the Morning News

This shot is a re-take of a picture I took a few weeks ago that I was not entirely happy with.  At the end of this canyon is the Philadelphia city hall.

Intersection of 17th and Kennedy

without comments

The Intersection of 17th and Kennedy in Philly is better known as Penn Center, original home of the Pennsylvania Railroad.  As you can see this was a difficult shot to take due to the busy movement of pedestrians and cars.  To the left is the Comcast building reflecting the buildings around it.  Below Penn Center is Suburban Station where you can catch the SEPTA train out to the surrounding suburbs.
