Philadelphia ICONS

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Philadelphia ICONS
Philadelphia ICONS

----
Shot this while driving to North Philadelphia to photograph an MLK Service Day for the Red Cross. To shoot this, I was driving North on Girard Street.
----
The photo really has THREE Philadelphia icons in it: The Frankford Elevated Railway, the trolley and the tracks and electrical wires that are STILL in use are obvious. There's also a car doing something illegal!!! The crazies were out in numbers today!

Being from Pittsburgh, I love those streetcars. I miss them, and it's so nostalgic to see them running in the city. Wonderful, Michelle.

Outstanding capture and presentation Michelle especially seeing that it contains three historic ICONS.

I'm always sorry not to have visited your gallery for a bit because I so enjoy seeing where you've gotten yourself to take shots. I'm never disappointed, though, when I finally get to look. I am taken with your angle here, with all the activity, and with your processing technique. Very nice.
