Philadelphia photos

I took a trip Thanksgiving week to upstate New York to visit my mom and see friends, and in the process still did some abandoned hunting. I made a beeline to Philadelphia to visit my cousin and her family, they live right in downtown Philadelphia! So we walked around that afternoon, that was the only day I had before having to return to Nashville. But it was amazing to squeeze this in!! They know how much I love abandoned buildings, so we walked about the city and found some cool spots before running out of daylight. Most would think of the liberty bell, independence hall, etc. when they think of Philadelphia photos. Well, here is my version 😀

It pays to pay attention while walking or driving to your destination to see what awaits you on the way. This is one advantage to being on foot especially in an urban setting. Typically abandoned structures aren’t in the most prosperous parts of town, but that’s one thing that goes with the territory. I’m ok with risks and keeping my wits about me while exploring the abandoned.

As we walked through Chinatown after dark, something about this alley caught my eye. Just had my trusty Fuji X100F with me! I hope you’ve enjoyed this 3 hour or so excursion of these Philadelphia photos. I think I must go back and spend more time 🙂
