    Today (well, technically yesterday since I'm posting this after midnight) we had what was likely some of the clearest weather in months, so I went out and wandered around Old City Philadelphia (that's the touristy part) with my camera and polarizer in hand. I didn't really photograph anything particularly interesting, but the weather was so nice I couldn't pass it up. So here are some of my shots...

    1. Independence Hall

    2. Statue in front (in back?) of independence hall

    3. The Second Bank of the USA (if I correctly remember what a passing tour guide said)

    4. Random...

    5. Some building...

    6. Glass building...

    Beautiful shots! My husband is from Philly and these make him wish he was home. :(

    I'll have to break out my polarizer and see what happens -- I don't think I've even used it.

    Looking good, Sky. It just makes me wish I were there with my IR filter...won't be long until I'm on the east coast, though :)
