Philly + a couple of Camden and B-more
 
I took a week long trip out to Philly in January to visit a friend and am just now getting around to posting them. The reason being that they are not particularly groundbreaking or special, and with the flood of awesome Philly threads on here I did not want to post my fodder. The rush has slowed down now, though, and I feel its time to see some more of this great city. Enjoy!

Philadelphia, PA (However, it needs no introduction)

Classic angle of Center City taken from the Art Museum. I know it's trite, but it's popular for a reason

A pretty bad night shot, but the angle is pretty unique I think. Taken from the seventh floor of the Iroquois apartment on City Ave, in case any locals are wondering.

A little more zoom from the above angle

Morning shot from the same location

Zoom'in in on Center City

It's Comcastic!

Just strolling downtown

They don't build 'em like this in New Mexico

City Hall

This shot is a little blurry (no tripod) but I like the mood

Camden (well, mostly Philly from Camden)

My main reason for crossing the Delaware was to take shots like this...

... and this, but ...

... this little guy at the NJ State Aquarium was also worth the toll on the Ben Franklin Bridge

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z...hilly207-1.jpg

As we left the aquarium, I was able to snap some twilight shots, sans tripod

The obligatory pano

Baltimore (plus a few of Annapolis)

While in Philly I begged (bribed) my friend to take me down to B-more so I could relive all of my favorite scenes from "The Wire". Well, we never made it to West Baltimore, but seeing the inner harbor was quite a treat. Here are a few shots:

We have arrived

Not the greatest angle, but it was the best I could do

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z.../Philly140.jpg

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z.../Philly135.jpg

I guess this is a Baltimore landmark but I just recognize it from "The Wire"

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z.../Philly040.jpg

Bonus Annapolis

What a beautiful city with some awesome brick structures (we don't use brick in NM so it's an eye-opener)


Thanks for viewing!

Wow! That Comcast Tower is so freaking tall! I never saw it from those angles before.

Nice pics of Baltimore too!
