Team David Kidney Awareness Message

Ok, after a long hiatus, we are back… Starting next week, daily updates from the Streets of Philadelphia will resume. Until then, I’d like to share this video – courtesy of Philadelphia resident David Coleman. David is trying to raise awareness of the dangers of Chronic Kidney Disease. This is a condition that occurs when […]

Decent day today.  Got around well and managed some “keepers”.  Hover over any image to display title and neighborhood, click on any for a larger view or to leave some comments…

I’m B-A-A-A-CK…

Well, that may just have been the longest two weeks of my life.  Moving is never fun, but I’m happy to be in the “center of it all” again.

So It Begins…

On Monday, July 9th my new studio location in East Kensington officially opens for business. Here I will be offering professional instruction and / or DIY film development and scanning. Whether you’re new to photography or you’ve been at it for years and would like to boost your knowledge, my one-on-one instruction will help you. […]

Summer Is Here

So today summer has officially arrived.  This is when things in the city really start to pop.  Timing is everything, so I just signed a new lease on a little place in East Kensington – so I can maintain a closer look.

Just a couple today, enjoy…

Some From the Far Northeast

I’m really not a fan of the Far Northeast neighborhoods.  Not gritty enough for me, and too tame.  But here are some from a few of the neighborhoods up there.

Storm Coming

Been a few days since I could get in front of the “puter”.  Here’s a bunch from all over…

Former Glory – Elkins Estate

And now for something completely different… The Elkins Estate is located in Elkins Park, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The estate contains seven buildings, the most notable being Elstowe Manor and Chelten House, mansions designed by Horace Trumbauer. Elstowe Manor was built in 1898 at the location where “Needles”, the former family summer home of William L. Elkins, had stood. Elkins, a Philadelphia businessman, was […]

Where the Germans Lived

Germantown is an area in Northwest Philadelphia. Founded by German Quaker and Mennonite families in 1683 as an independent borough, it was absorbed into Philadelphia in 1854.

Nice to be Back

I got yanked out of the city very early this morning and didn’t have much time after getting back, so these two images will have to do for today…

Skimpy Day

Only in Olney

Olney is an interesting neighborhood in Philadelphia. It is roughly bounded by Roosevelt Boulevard to the south, Tacony Creek to the east, Godfrey Avenue to the north, and the railroad right-of-way west of Seventh Street to the west.

Strawberry / Nicetown Dreams

Very short day for me.  Only 2 images to post – a definite deficit – both in terms of “quantity” and “quality” this time around.

Oh well, there is always tomorrow…

Rider Story – Mariano

Meet Marino…
I picked up this young man in Ambler, just north of the city and he was very excited to be on his way to complete his lifeguarding test at the local YMCA.

Philly Nor’Easter

In what may be the most leonine start to March on record, two massive and powerful nor’easters have already roared through the region, leaving hundreds of thousands without power and well over a foot of snow in spots in just the first week of the month.

Infamous Address – 3514 North Marshall Street

Strange odors sometimes wafted from this dilapidated house in the Tioga section of North Philadelphia, smells that neighbors likened to burning flesh. Then there were the odd noises: hammering at all hours, and what sounded like an electric saw and other power tools. Heavy-metal music blared day and night. But no one suspected the horrors that Philadelphia police discovered back in 1987.
