Strolling and Strumming

I heard the music, then I saw him coming. This guy was playing his guitar on the move. He was playing the crowd, but not as a concert. He was moving along with the rush hour crowd in full tune. He was strolling and strumming, in that order. Occasionally pausing to relate to those passing by, but mostly just passing through.

A Philadelphia Neighborhood

I spent a few days in a quaint neighborhood on the west side of Philadelphia. The brick paver sidewalks were surrounded by big houses with broad porches. On a cloudy day, I took a walk and looked around.

9/11 View

This is the view from my office's window on the 32nd floor looking down onto the World Trade Center site yesterday, on the 9/11 anniversary. They added the flag just for the day.

Street Block

They are preparing for the September 11th memorial services at Zuccotti Park (across from the World Trade Center site) by closing off adjoining Liberty Street. They are securing the area by installing temporary heavy duty concrete blocks. I also noticed that all the garbage cans in the surrounding blocks have been removed.

They are simultaneously beautifying the park by putting in rows and rows of flowers. (Pictures taken with an iPhone).

So, I was about to leave work for the evening and saw the light shining in from the west here. I continued on towards the elevators, then thought I should go back and grab a shot. Took the shot, and as I was taking a second, a co-worker magically appeared (below). With the body in there, it showed the importance of having a focal point in a photograph.

But, then when I started to edit the shot, I mistakenly twisted it a bit too much, adding a tilt to the picture. It kind of intrigued me, and I think the result made it a bit unique and added a little spice.
