I am a camera




One thing that’s been quite evident about having my new-ish camera, is that I’ve noticed myself noticing more. I’m pretty much an observer by nature, but now that I’m searching for interesting things to capture on film…I find myself gazing up, down, and all around me.

I’m so glad I got this camera. Thanks again, mother and brother. Love, ya!

I’ve joyously had some time off from work lately, so I’ve been bopping around the city snapping photos every afternoon. Therefore, I would like to end this weeks posts with images of Philadelphia.

The thing I enjoy about this city, is its architecture. It is a city that displays both charm and grandeur, and is very deeply embedded with history.

We have everything from English, Roman, and French influence within the design of our city’s buildings.

There is also a bit of modern architecture splashed in between.

Society Hill and Old City are perhaps my two favorite areas of Philadelphia. They’re basically the same area, yet with two distinct flavors.

Society Hill is the oldest part of the city, with its cobblestone streets and elegant brownstone homes. You can feel the energy of American history here. The buildings actually speak to you.

Old City is very much like a mini SoHo in NYC. Lofts, art gallery’s, European-style taverns, and unique boutiques line the streets. It has a delicious rawness to it.

Philadelphia’s architecture is candy for a photographers eyes. And like with most historical city‘s, I think Philly looks its best during the fall and winter months. For some reason, those two season’s bring out its vintage ambiance.

Here are some photos of various areas within the city.

(you may click on any photo to enlarge if you wish)

Please enjoy……




The old Stock Exchange Building in Society Hill.


One of the many cemeteries in Society Hill. I have such a fascination with walking thru cemeteries. Especially old ones.



Philadelphia’s oldest street, Elfreth’s Alley.



A view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge overpass on 2nd St. in Old City.



Shops and art galleries in Old City.



The new Comcast Building. Isn’t it spectacular?



A rustic French-style café off Rittenhouse Square. Oui, Oui!



The art deco-style Hotel Palomar.



This is a view from my apartment window. William Penn atop City Hall.


*thank you guys for stopping by and sharing in my tour.



Wishing you a picturesque weekend everyone!

  1. Hi Ron,
    YAY!! You know that I am having a field day looking at your Philly pics :)
    Belissima; I love ya, dude!

    How nice to have that extra touch of the snow. I think it fell on Thursday. I knew that you would be happy! These were great views. I haven't seen all these spots, but I remember that eternal flame in Washington square.

    Your view of William Penn, too! Magnificent. So, you get to see ole Willy every morning.

    Thanks for sharing, my friend. You are going like gangbusters; go man,go!!

  3. First time I've seen Philadelphia ... isn't it great? I love the architecture and the angles you chose for the photo shoot. You've captured each scene like a true photographic professional. Hey, you could start a whole new career with that camera. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. The architecture is incredible...what a view from your apartment! Love cobblestone. Hubby had to tear down the original cobblestone streets in a nearby city to build a mall...guess who got some of the cobblestone history for a patio and to line flowerbeds? You guessed it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. ...Ooo, my fav' was the first one. I know, silly but I love the juxtaposition of the cold steel, the burning flame and the snow - awesome! And my 2nd fav' would be the snowy cemetary. I love old cemetaries. :o)

    ...If you love looking at old cemetaries and graveyards you should go on Flickr and see the old cemetary photos there. You'll see old graves from all over, some sad, some awesome, mostly incredible!

    ...Your photo skillz are awesome my friend! Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see more!

    ...I so need a new camera. I see things that I think to myself, "self, that would make a beautiful photo!"; then I go get the camera and take a picture and it doesn't capture what I see. I guess it could have something to do with the fact that our current camera has a whoppin' 2 Megapixels! Mmmm hmmm, Momma needs a new camera! *giggle*shrug* ;o)

    ...Enjoy your weekend dear!

    ...Blessin's... :o)

  6. Bonjour Barbara~

    I was sooooooo thinking of YOU yesterday while I was out snapping away; knowing you were going to enjoy these sights of Philly!

    Yes, it snowed (actually blizzard) Wednesday evening and stopped early Thursday morning. That's one of the reasons why I wanted to get out yesterday and capture the beauty of the snowfall on the buildings and trees, because a day or two later the snow turns to gray slush. The only people out on the streets yesterday were snowplowers and people taking photos. The city was deserted.

    Isn't the eternal flame in Washington Square beautiful? It especially looks awesome against the snow.

    The great thing about being able to see Willy Penn from my window, is that I can always tell what TIME it is - HA!

    Thanks for stopping by, my friend! I'm having so much fun with this camera. Glad you enjoyed!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Awww...thanks, dear lady. I'm having such a great time with this camera. I still have much to learn, and it's been so enjoyable to learn and as I shoot.

    You would love strolling thru the various streets of Philadelphia because the architecture has such a European touch, so I think it would feel a bit like home, yet still different.

    Thank you for stopping by, sweet lady! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  9. Good Morning SuziCate~

    Isn't the architecture lovely? When I first moved back in 2001, I had forgotten how lovely it was. I'm European at heart, so everything I look around me it feels like I'm there!

    "guess who got some of the cobblestone history for a patio and to line flowerbeds? You guessed it!!! "

    OMG...how WONDERFUL!!!! I bet you can actually FEEL the history each time you look at it! I love hearing the sound of the horse and carriage tour rides on the Society Hill streets, as they clip-clop over the cobblestone. Such an awesome sound!

    Thank you for stopping by, Suzi! Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. Goooood Morning TJ~

    Isn't that first building glorious? I remember the first time I saw it when I moved back east, and GASPED at its GRANDEUR!

    "I love the juxtaposition of the cold steel, the burning flame and the snow - awesome! And my 2nd fav' would be the snowy cemetary. I love old cemetaries."

    Me too! Me too! To see fire and ice together is spectacular! And I have such an affinity for cemetary's - I find them utterly peaceful and sacred.

    Thank you SO MUCH for letting me know about the cemetaries and graveyards over at Flickr. I will definitely check it out!!!

    "I so need a new camera. I see things that I think to myself, "self, that would make a beautiful photo!"

    I use to be the same way, so that's why I KNEW I needed to finally get a camera. I use to have one (years ago) that was also 2 Megapixels, so I know what you mean. The one I have now has 12 and it makes a huge difference. Digital cameras have gotten so inexpensive, so you can find a good one that's reasonable.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words, dear lady. You're a dear!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  14. I truly enjoyed the tour and hope that you will consider an extended version. Pretty please? Maybe some river view photos? Elfreth's Alley is charming. I assume these are residences. What does the rest of this neighborhood look like? I so much want to click the photo and pan across...to see what's next door. and then beyond that. Thank you for sharing! Truly superb shots that really captured my imagination. xoxo diane

  16. Helloooooooo Diane~

    Yes, I would like to do one of these posts at least once a month, if not twice. I may do each area seperately as a city higlight. I am sooooo enjoying this camera, Diane. It's been soooo much fun to learn as I go along.

    "Elfreth's Alley is charming. I assume these are residences. What does the rest of this neighborhood look like?"

    Yes, they're residences that are apart of the city's historical tour, so they know that visitors will be walking around throughout the day (peering into their windows) - HA!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! So glad you enjoyed.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. VERY cool photos! I wish I had your talent. I do find myself seeing things with a photographer's eye, but the photo never lives up to my vision. Well, sometimes it does. Like that time I took a picture of my bunion scar. That was freaking awesome.

  18. oh ronnie , this was so fun, delicious things you've caught on camera and quite beautifully too....my fave is the cemetery, i adore old ones and with snow?? how perfect is that?? and the top one, fire and ice, perfection in a shot...you are a truly gifted photographer, methinks...keep it up, you live in a lovely place and i would like a place in that alley, please, how sweet! xoxoxo and enjoy your weekend, kind friend.

    HAHHAAHAHAHAHAHA! You are too damn funny, girl!

    Me too, often a photo will not live up to my vision. And ironically, the ones that end up being a great vision, are the the ones I didn't even plan on or even felt as though I did anything out of the ordinary to get them.

    Thanks for stopping by, girl! I am so damn happy you're back blogging again!

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm having sooooooo much fun with this camera. Still much to learn, but I'm enjoying the process.

    Don't just ADORE cemetaries? Yeah, and I think the snow added a touch of mystical magic to the tombstones. I'm so glad I got out there right after it snowed yesterday.

    "and i would like a place in that alley, please, how sweet!"

    Isn't that alley adorable? It looks a lot like the comfy, cozy appearance of YOUR lovely home!!!

    Thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed your first peek at Philadelphia. This city is so rich in character, yes. I love living around old things, rather than new. I enjoy the comfy feeling they give me. It's like living in the past and present all at the same time.

    Elfreth’s Alley, looks a bit like a road in England to me - and there's a Union Jack, which ads the the British look ;)

    Yes! Yes! Glad you noticed the Union Jack! That part of Philly looks very much like England. It's so quaint and cozy. The homes are very small, but they have a lot of character!

    Yes, like with ANY city there are different impressions/views, so I DO know what you mean. I use to live NYC and as much as I LOVE that place, there's a HUGE variety of views. But hey, that's city life. Some areas are really clean, while others are not.

    Today, I chose to share a beautiful view of Philly.

    Glad you enjoyed the photos and thank you for stopping by!

    Have a super weekend! Hey, can you believe all the SNOW we're getting?

  27. You forgot to mention the two best things about Philly (and they even rhyme): Tastykakes and cheese steaks!

    Oh, and the steps that Rocky ran up outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Gonna fly now!

    All that snow looks incredible...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Mark~

    OMG, I cannot believe you mentioned Tastykakes because when my family moved from Philly to Florida in the 70's, we were shocked to find NO Tastykakes available. We all went thru withdraws - HA!

    Oh and yes, who could forget the art museum steps that Rocky ran up....

    "Gonna fly now.......!

    I may be headed over there this afternoon to snaps more photos. That's another beautiful area.

    Doesn't the snow look wonderful? Like you, this is my favorite time of the year!

    Always great seeing ya, Mark! Much thanks for stopping by!

    Enjoy your Saturday!

  29. I scrolled up and down the photos several times
    they are so so good

    I agree about noticing more when you look at the world as a photographer

    Philadelphia is a lovely old city

  30. Hello Lady Dianne~

    Thank you, dear lady. I'm truly lovin' this new camera. And what I'm REALLY lovin' most about it, is that it's teaching me as I go along; learning so much.

    "I agree about noticing more when you look at the world as a photographer

    Yes, that is soooooooo true. I find myself making a circle with my hand, as if it's camera lense; framing a shot - HA!

    Glad you enjoy Philly. The architecture is truly my favorite part of this city.

    Much thanks for stopping by, Dianne! Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend. And I hope you're feeling better.

    And the starting photo--very cool.
    Himself took me on an adventure today and we saw lots of cool stuff.
    227 photos later.....LOL And that was a slow day with the camera! *laughing*

    Nope--I don't like the delete button.

    Hopefully, I'll be sharing a photo post twice a month.

    Elfreth's Alley is a residential area where visitors can walk up and down the street; viewing it's historical ambiance. Isn't it adorable? It's like stepping back in time.

    One of my blogging friends and her husband stayed at the Hotel Palomar while they were visiting Philly back in December. It was then, that I finally got to go inside and check it out. Yes, it is gorgeous, isn't it?

  35. What a view!

    Next time you wake up in the morning, think about me when you gaze out of your window and know that I'd love to be there and see that. Just for the visual treat.

    I love your expression "delicious rawness"... I have used "grainy" in the past for things rough edged, but this is even better.

    You are developing an artist's eye. Or I actually prefer an eye of someone who appreciates life starting from the tiniest of sweets. This all makes your life even more delicious. You realize, search and thus find... you get excited, inspired and feel good about what you are living and seeing in your daily life.

    You opened my eyes Ron! I never pictured Philly this romantic. For me it was Bruce Springsteen sweetly rough and tough industrial raggedy glamour.

    "Next time you wake up in the morning, think about me when you gaze out of your window and know that I'd love to be there and see that."

    Yes, I sure will. Isn't it a delightful view? And the best part is that I can always tell what time it is from the clock below William Penn - HA!

    "I have used "grainy" in the past for things rough edged..."

    I LOVE that expression..."grainy" for things rough edged.

    Having this camera has really made me notice and appreciate the various visual delights around me. It has opened my eyes.

    Hey, That's a GREAT way to describe Philly!

  37. Isn't it funny the viewpoint you take while walking with a camera, I find myself looking around for random photos when out and about, and this happens whether or not I have my camera with me Ha Ha

    "I too am drawn to the old cemeteries, the photo ops are endless but the feeling of peace is one that can't be explained although sometimes captured in a picture."

  41. I have to say that you have a wonderful eye! Great pics. The standouts (for me) are the pics of the cemetery, Elfreth’s Alley and the William Penn rooftop. Do you have a copy of Photoshop? Images from digital cameras leave something to be desired and touching up these picks will really pack some "oomph!"

    Again, great pics! It's nice to see photos from places with a history.

  43. Thank you!!! But, now I really miss Philly. I used to live across the street from that cemetery after college, 4th and Pine. I literally looked out of my 3rd floor window right into that cemetery. At first, I thought it would freak me out. But, I found it so peaceful and beautiful. My favorite thing would be to close my eyes and listen to the clippity clop of the horse drawn carriages. I'd imagine I was in a different time.

    That one of the PNC bank building and the top of City Hall reminded me of when we went over for my birthday and went to the observation deck under William Penn's statue. Terrific views up there.

    OMG, isn't the view from up there terrific? I don't think people realize from looking at it from the ground, HOW high up it is.

    Elfreth's Alley is all the way down in the lowest part of Society Hill. It's residential, but it's also part of the Philly tour, so people are always walking around; peeking inside the windows - HA!'
