PHILLY | Bless It All



Though I truly dislike summer and many of the things that come with it there is certainly a definite feel in the air and on the streets that doesn't exist during the colder times of year. And it's more than ridiculous humidity and an witheringly sucky baseball team.

Although there's been more than enough of those as well.

Here's some 'so-far-summer'. (See if you can spot the Jersey shots!)

Hope you're enjoying your summer. Thanks for taking a look!

What a city. That water gun battle looks fun, though, I"m not sure I'd want fountain water in my face.

You nailed it, great set, (dance, drink, screw) is that at the Westbury?? Summer is not my favorite season as well but it does bring outdoor music venues for groups like New Order so we have to have Respect for it..

Truly amazing thread. Lol at the juxtaposition of "nice ass" and the next image.

summertime in the city - what a thread!

here's a 1970s throwback for ya:

"well you can
go to philly anytime
if the liberty bell
rings your chime..."

there's no surf in cleveland
the euclid beach band
