This is another of The Photo Elective series of photographs that Tina, I and every other illustration major attending The Philadelphia College of Art were required to shoot, process and print. My guess is that the notion of the class … Continue reading
Another glorious neon relic from a bygone era sadly in need of restoration, but I don’t think there is the money, interest or will. A beautiful job was done on the Boot and Saddle sign just up the street, but … Continue reading

This is me gazing at Center City from the roof of an apartment on South Street I was living in at the time.
