day two | philadelphia

Second day (Friday) with the Schmidt family was a day in Philadelphia. We toured Independence Hall in the morning, looked at the Liberty Bell, and hopped onto one of the sightseeing tour buses. What a great way to see the city. We stopped at the Reading Terminal for lunch and that was quite an experience.

Elreth’s Alley is the nation’s oldest residential street. Its a charming row of homes that are still inhabited today. The following few pictures are from our time in the alley. At the very end was a set of twins selling lemonade.

Outside the Reading Terminal were a group of men playing “instruments” (drumsticks on the ground, bucket as a drum, etc.) I love the guy on the very end who stared at me the entire time I was taking their pictures.

My handsome husband who is celebrating a birthday today!

I found this vespa and wall. I loved the bright colors of the wall and the vespa.

Coming up next: Time at Halo Farms and celebrating birthdays

First, Happy b-day to your hubby! Hope he had a great day!

Second, I think we HAD to have passed each other! I had a shoot and used the very same vespa and blue wall by Elfreth’s alley…so cool!

Third, how was the market? So glad you stopped by! It is definitely something that needs to be experienced in Philly…all of the craziness and food is fabulous!

You did a beautiful job of capturing different aspects of the city.
