With its confluence of art, history, and architecture, the city of Philadelphia is a visual feast. Following are a few snapshots captured in Center City, Philadelphia, throughout the course of an early September afternoon/evening.

Magnificent shots – all of them, Gina. That is probably the best pic of the ‘Love’ sculpture I’ve ever seen! (Same for the top of City Hall.) I always appreciate seeing the unscaffolded version of this; as a child, it seemed the clock top was covered in scaffolding and eternally being repaired. Really great to see you capture it in all its history and beauty!
Thanks, Patricia! My zoom lens came in handy with capturing the clock tower of City Hall. You bring a unique perspective re: the clock tower having gone incognito for so many years during your childhood. It’s truly one of the city’s gems, and I’m glad to live in Philadelphia during a time when it’s on display for all to see. I have yet to see the interior of City Hall, but it’s on my bucket list.
Have a great week!
