Each week I’ll be showcasing one of my favorite photographs from my travels. Some are new, some are old. Some were taken on my phone (by necessity). Some are from Philadelphia, some from much farther than that… This week’s photograph was taken in Philadelphia in 2018.

More of a take out place than a sit-down restaurant, Tico’s Tacos (1627 South St) in Graduate Hospital, Philadelphia, was recommended to me by my neighbor, who has lived in the area for a few years, as I debated on what to order for dinner.

I’ve been taking a digital photography class at U.Arts this October, and last week’s assignment brought me to Dilworth Park to take some photos of the fountains. (The assignment was to photograph things using fast or slow shutter speeds and I had a lot of fun trying to freeze the water in motion.)
Dilworth Park is always an interesting place to visit. Right next to City Hall, there are always a variety of people to watch– tourists checking out City Hall, children running around the fountains, couples enjoying the scenery together, lawyers and jurors eating lunch, and more. With the rainy fall weather, the park was relatively empty on a Sunday, but soon it will be filled with holiday shops, an ice skating rink, and more.
