Some new photos while I think of something interesting to write about.

The famous LOVE statue. I popped the flash and was surprised at the glow that it rendered. I'll go back and get another one that isn't quite so grainy.  Or maybe that's the look?
The Philadelphia skyline from the South Street Bridge.  It's one of the better spots to capture it.  They are nearly finished the rebuilding of the bridge, although it still shakes like the old one did.
Rittenhouse Plaza, which I'm guessing is some sort of high-end residence.  It's conveniently located near the Apple store. Or maybe the Apple store is conveniently located near it?
City Hall and the tents.  I saw more bicycles parked around the city than I had ever seen.  I think that's a good thing.
City Hall from Broad Street near Chestnut.  The island makes for a nice set-up spot.
The City Hall courtyard rimmed by tents of the Occupy Philly squatters.  I'm not sure what they want and from what I heard, I'm not sure they know either.
Logan Circle very late at night. The only sounds were the rushing water and the plaintive cries of a homeless man, ranting in his own language.  I worked quickly.

You might have been sad on your birthday wandering around Philadelphia, but you surely took stunning photos of it. They are sooo beautiful - it makes one want to go there right away.

By the way: your new "about me" photo is really meshugge. (chuckle)

Great photos. I almost feel like I'm there.
