2. Thanks NV Whino!

I posted most of these about three years ago. My oldest daughter was in her last year of Med School at Drexel, and i went and spent a month with her in January of that year. January in Philadelphia could have been real nasty, I suppose, but the weather, while very cold, was clear most of the time. Made for some lovely, strikingly blue skies.

Glad to see you are surviving the rain. I hope we get some clear weather soon.

EDIT: These were all taken with my Canon point-and-shoot, an SX200 IS.

3. Dry weather coming up

Been busy fixing clients' leaks and downed trees, and breaking in a new cat. Also been too lazy to post photos.

Turns into one thing after another.

5. Very cool. Thanks. Will we get boat house pics too? Driving the Sure-kill at midnight is lovely.

7. My night shots of Boathouse Row didn't turn out well.

You're right; it is certainly a lovely drive at night with all of the lights, especially on cold, clear nights.

We visited Philly several times while my oldest daughter was there, and thoroughly enjoyed the city. She graduated med school a couple years ago and is now back on the West Coast, so I don't know when (or if) we'll get back there.

If you are a denizen of Philly you will probably recognize these places:







The shot of Monk's is a bit, uh...fuzzy. After a couple of high-octane Belgian ales even the monopod couldn't save me.
