Solstice Philadelphia 2014

It’s that glorious time again.

In 1986, SEPTA killed the Route 53 trolley.  One thousand years from now, archaeologists will find this plate from the former owner of the transit lines, Philadelphia Rapid Transit, at the Carpenter Loop.

A block down Carpenter Lane, the flowers of summer never died.

The harsh rays cast severe shadows on the hills of Manayunk.

Solstice is two weeks away.  Eat your heart out Australia.  Life must be boring for photographers south of the Tropic of Capricorn.

  1. The Manayunk photo is so evocative. Is the Stop sign a nod to encroaching gentrification?

    Here in California the weather is haywire…leaves have turned and our azelias have burst into bloom again along with the Mums.

    Love your work.
