Shot Tower and The Emanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church which is now The Phat Quang Buddhist Temple way down Washington Avenue shot from way up Washington Avenue with a long lens.
I found this gem in the New York Times – Easy-As-Pie Apple Cake. It was such a hit, I made it twice in one week! The mark of a good apple cake is if it’s breakfast worthy – this one is, I did the research myself. Continue reading

These are the rickety stands that the City of Philadelphia has installed for the Mummer’s Parade. It doesn’t look like they’re putting a lot of effort into the event.

Walking home from work last night, I was waiting for the light to change and noticed how stunning City Hall looked lit up, and the reflection the street lights had on the rain drenched street. Despite the balmy temperatures and lack of snow, it’s Christmastime in the city!
The train sat on the tracks outside of 69th Street for reasons unknown so the combination of boredom and the availability of a camera are why I present you this vista today.
