Hello Everyone! On April first, the Art Department planned a bus trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia. I had a wonderful time going and seeing the beautiful building and the wonderful artifacts and of course the amazing paintings and other mediums of art! During the time of the trip, I had time to go out and explore the streets of Philadelphia! I was able to capture great moments on my walk! All images are in Black and White because when looking at them they seem have a story behind them all!
Image one: this was taken outside of the museum by the Rocky statue. When walking past I saw a line of people going up getting an selfie or kids getting pictures with it. I also saw these two men one leaning up against the fence and the other on the grass. I wasn’t going to take their picture but looking at the scene more waiting for the cross walk to turn green I decided to take a quick picture and run across to catch up with my friends. I wasn’t sure if I got a good image after being quick, but I was happy I was able to get a perfect image! I loved how detailed everything is, and how well, in my opinion, captures city life!
Image two: I am very lucky I was able to capture this perfect moment of this kid doing a trick on his skateboard in front of the massive statue! I wasn’t sure if I got it, or it was going to be too out of focus, but when looking at it one my computer, I was truly happy!
Image five: This image I took while I was walking. I specifically walked slow because I was waiting for the man to come in perfect spot through the window. I am doing a big project for my History of Photography class, where we have to research a famous Photographer and I’m researching Vivian Maier. When I was looking through her images, there was one that has always caught my eye, March 1954, New York, NY. It’s an image of a News paper / magazine stand and she captured the man inside sleeping. When I saw this stand it automatically reminded me of her, so I wanted to capture it in modern but my style and this images says it all!
I hope you enjoy seeing all the images I took and the story / thoughts behind every image. I truly had a great time walking around the city as I have never been to Philadelphia. It was a great experience to explore new places and photograph the journey!
