I took the day off Monday to spend with my niece and my sister in Philadelphia. We met at my niece’s apartment and headed out and about.
Our first stop was Reading Terminal Market, which I’d heard about but never visited before yesterday. There was a plethora of vendors offering everything from lunch dishes to spices and specialty items. There was a great selection of produce and flowers as well. What a feast for the eyes and the senses!
I shot this photograph at one of the eateries. It just looked like Philadelphia to me.
Next we headed for Fabric Row and South Street. Along the way, I shot this building from the car window while at a stop light. I noticed there was a statue of a rider on his horse but I have no idea who it is or even what this building is. (Thanks readers, for letting me know it's City Hall!)
As my niece shopped in one of the many fabric stores along Fabric Row, I took photos. I liked these vintage dressmaker forms at the Pennsylvania Fabric Outlet.
Trying on some hats at Hats in the Belfry (I love that name).
William King’s striding sculpture is on the overpass above I-95 that connects South Street with the steps at Penn’s Landing.
My niece, Emily, with her mom ~ my lovely sister, Charlotte. Charlotte fun!
I processed all of the photos on this post with [Kevin Kubota] actions, specifically his chocolate syrup series. When it comes to b&w, I really like what he has to offer.
