At the beginning of the 2012 school year back in September I took a trip to Philly. This is probably the best time to go as it was not crowded at all. Basically, the streets were almost completely dead. It looked like a ghost town. The good thing about it was that you didn’t have to fight crowds and for the photographers that means no people in the way. The weather was still warm but we got hit with a very nasty thunderstorm later in the evening. We sought shelter in some of the many bars and restaurants lining South Street. Philly isn’t as large a city as Manhattan and you could probably see the whole city in one day.

The city wasn’t completely dead as there was a ceremony celebrating the beloved Philadelphia Eagles football team at the JFK Plaza park on Arch Street. We saw some of the players and cheerleaders then later on we walked around the Center City area doing the usual sightseeing. After walking around and working up an appetite, we ventured into Chinatown to get some lunch. After lunch we sauntered down to South Street and then to Penn’s Landing then back to South Street to shelter from the thunderstorm.

Photos from the trip, enjoy.
