Red in the neighborhood.

Walking the neighborhood

Now that I have my nifty Instagram app I’ve always got a 2 1/4 camera with me. I’ve always loved to shoot square. I’ve begun taking shots each time I walk the neighborhood. It’s easier to do this now that I am a full time pedestrian — no more car.

This is a Lomo-esque shot just a couple blocks from home. I have taken many photos of it. I like to explore the same places from a different point of view. This is an amazing building. It has been empty now for at least a couple years. I wonder when someone from Brooklyn will buy it and turn it into condos. So much Philadelphia property has been bought up by Brooklyn developers.


The shortest distance between two points.

Was watching some Parkour videos and came upon this apparently famous commercial he did for the BBC.

from Wikipedia
Parkour (sometimes abbreviated to PK) is a utilitarian discipline based upon the direct, successful, swift traversing of one’s surrounding environment via the practical application of techniques, based around the concept of self-preservation. It is a non-competitive, physical discipline of French origin in which participants run along a route, attempting to negotiate obstacles in the most efficient way possible, using only their bodies.

Parkour is beautiful.
