Starting out, I'm sure I'll be a bit heavy handed, a bit off in color correction.
Already, in the brief time since working on the photos I took today, to adding them here, I want to tweak.
Lots of sliders to move back and forth, detail enhancement, colors, tints.
The Bats - "Free All the Monsters"
Today, I wanted to walk around city hall. Its closed to the public, since 9/11, keeps us safer, I guess, to me, directly, its a loss of freedom.
I took the tour offered, the guided tour is the only way for me to walk around the building. It was a grand tour, the building is incredible. It ends in the observation deck, a glass circular room just under Penn's feet.
Only a small group at a time can go up to the observation deck. Its a wee little elevator.
I talked with the guide to pass the time, she was in her mid 70's and was born, lived all her life in Philly. I asked her about Woodside Park, about riding the train around Belmont. She told me of the cool breeze, and smiled talking about the bygone amusement park. I wanted to tell her about how we ride back there now, on mountain bikes. She had drifted off into an old world, I don't think she had though about, in a while,... We were interrupted, and I was called to the elevator. To see the view of the city from Penn's feet.
