This was taken during my first weekend here when all the new students took a trip to downtown Philadelphia. If you wanted a "change in scenery", here it is.

Classes are going well, but I'm keeping myself busy. I don't have a lot of time for shooting, and the sun has been reluctant to show it's warm face recently. (ie, bad lighting).

I installed zenphoto today in hopes of finding easy to use gallery software. It is somewhat more functional than the gallery that I started a number of months ago, but I'm still trying to get my theme(s) installed and itegration of my exif script, etc. I will hopefully release a portfolio soon, however.

In other news, I have been recently listening to and enjoying the TWiT (This Week in Technolog) podcast. The host is Leo Laporte, who used to be on The Screen Savers (back when we used to get TechTV). It is a weekly 75 minute podcast full of good technology analysis and discussion (not just simple Microsoft bashing).

Great shot - the perspective gives you the feeling you're there.

This urban texture is a good choice for black and white. I would not have thought to do this in b&W, but it worked out nicely. What I really like about this foto is that you captured only a small part of the building on the top of the frame, which makes the other one stand out more (i.e. it's not a busy scene with one object taking away from the other). Well thought out.
