WHAT: Cityscapes & Landscapes | WHEN: July 5, 2011 | WHERE: Philly
|I spent a few days in Philadelphia last week, and I wish I coulda spent a few days more just to do a little cityscape photography. It's such a great city with so much character and history, and I only got to see a couple blocks of it this time, mostly while in transit.
I was in town for a technology conference downtown and didn't have much free time, but I was able to get away one night for dinner with photography friends Kylene and Charmi. BTW, raise your hand if you knew that New Jersey is only 30-40 minutes from Philly. Yeah, I didn't know either. When Charmi said she came in from New Jersey to meet up with us for dinner, I thought she was insane. In my 6th grade geography mind, New Jersey seemed like it was several hours or even a plane ride away from Philadelphia, so when Charmi told me it just a short drive, I kinda felt like one of those Jay Leno on-the-street interview people I always make fun of... you know, the ones who don't know how many states are in the US or when the War of 1812 was fought or who the current President is.
Not much time for photography during this trip, but I did get a few images walking from the hotel to dinner and back on a couple nights.
