Photoblogging Philly

As a new resident of Philadelphia, I was both delighted and humbled to be asked to join on as a photoblogger. I’ll be posting scenes of Philly every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

I am already in love with Philly after being here only one and a half months. In fact, I could almost say, I loved Philly before I got here. But like anyone who feels they’ve found the love they were always looking for, I know it’s superficial so far and there’s a lot of real Philadelphia to discover and learn about. I hope my photos will convey that exploration and show what’s great about Philadelphia.

But I can’t do it alone. I need YOU. Yes, you out there with your cameras all over this city. Join the Metroblogging Philadelphia Flickr group, submit your photos, and I’ll feature one every Friday (and more often than that if we get enough photos to feature). Shoot whatever you want, your local neighborhood, skylines, the people around you. Keep it natural, or go for high saturation, or black and white, or the Lomo effect, whatever you want.

I’ll start off here with this photo, which granted, is really of the sky, but it seems to be to be truly a Philly sky (is it always sunny and beautiful here, or is it just this month?), with the tops of the Cira Building and 30th Street Station showing above the Walnut Street Bridge.
