"Freeway" - Kurt Vile A few weeks ago, I spent a weekend in Philly. I had to stick around again to finish my photos for the Friends of The Rail Park, and so I decided to make a weekend of it. I visited some of the same neighborhoods I did on my last weekend in Philly: Port Richmond, Fishtown, Francisville, Brewerytown, and various parts of the southeast near the Italian Market. My love for Philly remains strong, and I think these photos are evidence to that. Included are the Venturi House, the Victorian apartment buildings of Parkside Ave., some industrial buildings, scenes from Port Richmond and Fishtown under the el, the Reading Viaduct and surrounding areas, the City Branch tunnel portion of the future rail park, and some scenes around the Divine Lorraine, including Nicholas Biddle’s Greek Revival building on Girard College’s campus, one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. I was really excited to see that. Unfortunately, I only had a disposable camera on me at the time, so that was kind of a bummer, but it was cool to see nonetheless. I walked around with Tyler from Above Mountain Tops, which was really cool. It’s always fun to meet photographers from tumblr whose work I admire. I have more photos on the way, mostly from the shore, and next week I’m heading out to Pittsburgh, so I should have some great photos from there. Until next time…
