This is primarily an inaugural test shot from a new camera. The general area in which this shot was taken is in such a state that any real beauty is becoming fast extinct, primarily because it is a town that has become rather schizophrenic. It tries hard to maintain a sleepy college town type of appearance, and yet wants badly to reap the benefits of urbanization, urban revitalization, and gentrification. But with creative framing, it’s mostly possible to eek out the last vestiges of organic beauty here, even though heavy construction and ghastly postmodern art is rudely intruding upon the scene.

I might attempt to take more pictures of this area before the place gets “redeveloped,” which I hear is slated to happen soon. It seems like the last time anyone though of taking photos of the place was back in the day, and no one bothered to really revisit the place when the age of color made it big in photography. It would be nice to catpure what’s left in all its beauty before it’s all gone, and battleship-grey highrises take its place.

No one uses the phone anymore.
The tracks are wrecked and the odometer’s ticking.
The edge is pushed and the lines are melting.
Too scared to look at what I hear outside.
Release,Protect. Embrace, Engulf.
Remember the summer.
Protect. Enslave. In love.

This was taken in downtown Philadelphia, during one of the “Free Mumia” rallies that were all the rage back then. Since that time, Mumia has changed his story significantly and all but a few diehards have withdrawn support. But the photos of the crowds and happenings of these events are still a sight to behold.
