Parting Shots

A while ago I had mentioned that I finally brought my camera with me to work when I was in Philly. I took some very random shots and I finally got the damn filmed developed.

This first set is my drive in. For some reason I thought it would be fun to take pictures going 75 mph on the NJ Turnpike.


Hey...people text message, I take pictures.


(Kids, don't try this at home!)



This is the last stretch I have on the NJ Turnpike - traffic was light that day. It's a very long and boring drive.


I'm gaining on him.


This is usually my view.


Ooops, here's my exit.

My daily cup of heaven!


Which way?

Now which way?

Approaching Ben Franklin Bridge


Over Ben...

Under Ben

Daily News Guy - Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays this poor dude from sellin' his papers!



Local Fox Noise Channel. ( I think I'm on TV every morning)


A cold and blustery day at Penn's Landing.

I turn down 2nd Street

The lovely parking garage where my little car hung out while I was at work.


My long flight down. I took the stairs just so I would get a little exercise each day.


This is the U.S. Customs Building in Philadelphia. It's right across the street from where I used to park. It's a pretty cool building.
More to come, I don't want to wear out Blogger with my uploads!

You took those shots while you were driving! You must have a Guardian Angel on your shoulder!

Nice photos - it's fun to see your environment, even though I guess it's all changed now.

You will miss Philly. I still miss it at times. It's hard to believe it has been twenty five years since i lived there.

Wow! "Counting the cars on the New Jersey turnpike …"
I have always loved that song, Shazza and now at long last you have brought it to life!
Thank you so much.
And what a great photopost!

Happy new year to you and M (and the dogs)!

also - thx for the photos, I love road trips or everything having to do with driving.
I take pictures while driving but mine never really look that good. they're all blurry, which makes me look like i go 200mph in a residential area...

You know, in those shots, Philly doesn't look so bad. And then I remember that the first time I ever saw a car on fire was in Philly.

Wow Shazza! That kinda blows me away. I always thought of Philly as a really busy big city. Both Seattle and Portland have at least 4 times the traffic off peak. You'll have to do more photo logs, they are very interesring.
