Such wonderful old architecture and no time to explore! This was taken from the cab at a stoplight! Is this considered a drive by??? LOL!

and you didn't even say it's my heart city, the city of brotherly love. Great capture of Philly from a cab. I thought you had to be "moving" for a drive by. I didn't know you needed to be driving as well!!! OMG!! Awesome lines, clarity, detail, light and effect. I'm glad I "talked" you into posting this one. LOLOL

I busted Max on one of Stefania's where he wrote: Hahaha I get to be first and that was all. No comment on the capture. I'm glad he remembered to do BOTH this time! VBG

LOL! Yes, I agree with Ann! In all the drive by shootings that I've heard of, there's a driver and then there's the guy with the gun! So I don't think you have to be driving ... just moving! This was a great shot, Courtenay! I think you killed two buildings with one bullet ... because they're both falling over! Ha! Ha! Love the angle and designs! Fantastic clarity! So is there a Lean-one?

John ~ I don't think Courtenay could have taken this picture WITH a tripod! ... unless her tripod leans too! Ha! Ha! :)

Don't forget, Courtenay could have used a flexible tripod, instead of twisting her neck, back, and head...!!! I would like to see the shot of her taking the photo.... lol
