Thumbs up PHILLY | I'm Gonna Sell My House In Town

When last we met I was up to nothing at all. As usual.

Steely Dan came along. The band, not the admin.

Thanks for looking in. Till next time.

Way too many great shots to select one in particular. If cities could talk Philly would have a lot to say.

Wow VZ, I'm glad you were able to capture that art light show that I missed!

Killer eye for the details. Nice job with the multi colored lighting sequences too. I think Urban Waterfall is my favorite, really nice color and geometry.

Skillful, yet again. Treats like this:



Lovely. Girls have a nice spot, but don't they mix genders yet in catholic schools over there?
Damn, that's harsh.

mousquet, some of the high schools are separate but not elementary/middle schools. The more prominent ones in the city (Roman, Little Flower, Hallahan) are single sex. I guess people like it old fashioned.

ColDay, there's some debate on the new owners keeping the sign. Locals like it but that alone may not be enough to save it.

Thanks for taking a look folks!

I hope they can somehow save that King of Jeans sign. It's an icon. BTW, have those new mixed-used projects in Chinatown broken ground yet? Fantastic showing, Steve. All around great work.

You mean the Eastern Tower?


Philly Shark

It's supposed to break ground next year.

thank you for bringing some different angles to the open air light show. all the pics on instagram were from the same parkway skyline angle, but you actually turned around and faced the other direction, and got some street level stuff from farther away. great stuff.

also like the one that mousquet reposted, as well as the big nuts obama wheatpaste, the light sequences okayyou mentioned, the falls of the wissahickon with the train bridge, the new hawthorne park, and the poor ol' busted beury building.

When was there a noo-clear explosion here? The first picture looks like armageddon!

The laser thing was pretty cool...not really sure how it was art...but it was cool nevertheless.
