My Mom grew up in Philly. I remember going up into the top of this bldg when I visited my Grandma - late 1950's maybe? Nice night shot!

Hi Stephanie! I'm back after a lapse of photography. I like the old building with the glow halfway up, bracketed by modern shops with bright lighting. I'm glad you weren't run over.

Ohhh! FULL MARKS. Go G12. Brilliantly done. If used well those little cameras can really be handheld for those slow shutter speeds. It takes a skilled photographer though. BBV
