Bellevue Light

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Bellevue Light
Bellevue Light

---
While working in Philadelphia during the spring and summer of 2010, I frequently used my lunch hour for photo walks through Center City.
----
One of my themes was "Lights on Buildings." One day I'll have to assemble the collection.
---
This was on the Bellevue Hotel on Broad Street (once called the "Bellevue-Stratford)."
----
Oldies like me will remember that this was the place where in 1976 Legionnaire's Disease first broke out and was tracked to a new bacteria living in the air conditioning cooling tower. Thirty-four people were killed and more than 220 were sickened. The hotel was closed and has been bought and sold, opened and closed, and had its name changed several times since.

    Morning
VERY COOL & I especially like the presentation.
I recall your lunch time travels & captures. I also recall many interesting LIGHTS you captured while walking about. Time for that Coffee Table book of Down Town Philly ........

Wonderful find and beautifully composed and presented, Michelle! How well I remember your travels about Philly (I loved learning about the city thru your eyes) and I also remember the Legionnaires outbreak - so sad.
