Saturday Photowalk with Friends



I spent a few pleasant hours walking around Penns Landing with a fun bunch of photographers. I had the opportunity to show the range and ability of Canon 70-200 f/4 lens to a dedicated Nikon shutter bug. The following photos taken today were captured with the 70-200 f/4 lens.

The weather was perfect for casually strolling around the city and taking photos at will. Such as the seagull perched on protective covering as the Gazela undergoes routine maintenance.


The battleship New Jersey parked on the Camden, NJ waterfront. Every time I see this ship I’m reminded of the Philadelphia Experiment.


Penns Landing is a great place to relax, go for a run or simply take in the sights.


Loving the shark motif on the bow of this tug boat.


Someone intertwined a rosary in the sculptured hands of this Korean War soldier monument. Fitting for this time of year, for those who celebrate a risen Messiah.


This is peak tree-peeping season for the many Cherry trees dotted around this city.


As always, regardless of the season, never forget those who served.

    Looks like you had a beautiful day for a stroll and photos! Are tours offered on the USS Philadelphia? Powerful image of the Korean War soldier sculpture with the Rosary intertwined in its fingers! I have by Grandmother’s Rosary and she used it, saying the Family Rosary for Peace every evening at 7pm. When my Dad, Brother, Sister and I lived with her and my Grandfather when my Mom died, we said the Rosary with her as well. As a little kid, the recitation of all of those Our Fathers, Hail Marys and Glory Be’s was monotonous for me, but I was respectful and went along with it. 🙂
