Street Photography: Center City, Philadelphia
So as you all know I’ve been on this sort of street photography kick. I am actually enjoying it more than I thought. So with this blog I’ve decided to start a post “trend” in my work. For obvious reasons the posts will be named “Street Photography” but in the title will also have the location.
So this past weekend I spent both Saturday and Sunday in Center City, Philadelphia.
Subconsciously, both Saturday and Sunday I decided to hang around center city. At this point it’s clear to me as to why I did. Plain and simple, the weather was phenomenal. I knew that would be the best spot to unleash my camera and catch some interesting images.
Through-out Saturday I pretty much stayed at LOVE park. There was so much activity going on it was hard to walk away. First there was about 3 sets of happily married couples floating around the park. It was very interesting to see that each couple had their own style, yet all very fashionable. The most important thing was they were enjoying their surroundings, as was I.
Well aside from the brides and grooms I also had about 50 skateboarders keeping the parks rhythm going. Me being an old skater know that back about 8-10 years ago when the scene was huge, there were certain tricks and moves that if you saw someone perfect your jaw would drop. Today i came to the realization that not only are those tricks now so easily done, but there are 12 year olds doing them with ease! There is defiantly a lot of talent out there, it truly does suck that skateboarding is such a “crime” (sarcastically stated).
Moving on, I managed to hit some side streets outside of the park to find even more wedding action and some other shots of people in their “natural state”.
