Brick Alley

Brick Alley

This beautiful alley in Center City, Philadelphia always captures my attention, especially around sunset.

I’ve been trying to get better at properly exposing both the foreground and background in my photography, especially when the sky is involved.  This shot is a blend of two exposures to get more blue out of the sky.

Time for more practice.

Whatever we’re up to, let’s keep pushing forward!

Ars Medendi

Ars Medendi - Copper Script

This copper screen, the Ars Medendi, stands at Thomas Jefferson University in Center City, Philadelphia.  This sculpture, one of two, was created by Jim Sanborn.

The script is backwards, as this is a rear view of the copper screen.

The university is always a joy to pass, and I’ll have to spend more time there in the future.

Quiet Back Alley

Alley-Photograph

Alleys always grab my attention, whether they’re hidden in a small town or in a big city, like this one in Center City, Philadelphia.  They have their own quiet, unique beauty.  I’m a sucker for peeling paint, exposed brick, pipes, and fire escapes.

Beauty can be often found in places we overlook, hidden in plain sight.

The Musical Fund Hall is a beautiful building in Center City, Philadelphia.  I’ve admired it in passing a few times, though I’ll have to take a closer look in the future.

Make Time For Yourself

Bars

It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of every day.  Time can seem to rush by, and days blur into weeks.

Let’s remember to stop, breathe, remember our goals, and make time for ourselves.  Every day.

Yes, the world’s important.  There are chores to do, projects to start and others to finish, people to please, and yes, you’re the only one who can fix that one thing in the office.

But, remember that you’re important, too.

The world won’t wait, but we can catch up.

Let’s make time for ourselves and attend to our own peace and happiness.  Even if it’s just a few minutes a day.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Seeing the world is a beautiful thing.

Beauty is everywhere.  We don’t have to travel miles to see something worthwhile, beautiful, or different.  But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t travel further when we get the chance.

Whether we travel to Philadelphia, New York City, or simply down a street in our neighborhood, let’s get outside and see the world.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Beauty is Everywhere
