LOL, I really should do more pp work. I am just to lazy I guess. But thanks for the suggestion. I increase the color saturation to bring out the bricks more.

Hey...I recognize that clock tower from the movie "National Treasure"!! Nice mix of historic buildiings with the modern. That is one city in PA that I have not explored even though I went to school (Penn State) within driving distance of Philly. Found myself heading to Pittsburgh instead.

Neat travelog...thanks for taking us along on the ride.

Your welcome Jelpen,

I prefer Pittsburg over philly actually. The triangle was always fun in Pittsburgh. It was pretty cool but I could not get a good shot of independence hall as they were doing construction in the Mall area infront of it. So I selected the close and steeple instead.

Penn State Lion I see, not bad. I was a Trojan myself. PAC 10.

I loved the pics, shoturtle. When I saw them about a day after you posted, I immediately went to google maps to see how far Philadelphia is from where we live. It's about a 2 and a half hour drive. I'd love to shoot photos there, the same way my wife and I did in Scranton, but my wife and I have also been talking about Vermont and other NY State locales so we'll have to make up our minds which ones to go to first. But thanks a lot for putting Philadelphia on "my map". It's far but not that far...

From manhattan it is only 1.5 hours off the jersey turn pike, 75mph the whole way since the posted limit is 65mph. It makes a nice day trip or a weekend trip. Go when it is sunny. You can get nice shots of the battleship New Jersey form the Philly side of the Delaware river, beside visit the New Jersey, nothing worth going into Camden for, it is the hood for Philly.

We've only been to Philly once and only had time for the zoo. That was a century ago . Thanks for the tips, shoturtle!

I also hope you realize you might rouse the Camden villagers' ire by saying there's nothing there. They might rush your place with torches in hand just kidding!
