A couple weeks ago, my wife and I were down at Penn visiting my daughter during Family Weekend and attended the Penn-Dartmouth game. Naturally, I brought my camera along to see if I can get any decent shots. Here’s a few keepers I felt good about.
By the way, this game, which Penn won, went into 4 overtimes and went on for over 4 hours. The longest game played in Ivy League history.

While in Philadelphia this weekend was primarily to visit my daughter at school, it was also photographically diverse. Saturday was the annual Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk (more on that in another post) and Sunday I attended Figment, an interactive arts festival of new and emerging artists, in Clark Park, the first time the event has been held in Phili.
Exhibits ranged from social painting on a large canvas, mutant bikes (see photo and no further explanation needed); the art of movement through twirling large flags and puppets; playing piano notes through a circuit board connected to bananas for keys (sorry, no sharps or flat keys — but you can beat out a tune!); an installation where you can “beat a dead horse”; to a Pit Bull kissing booth with two Pit Bulls that were up for adoption. Run by the Luzerne County Pit Bull Owners Group, two gentle Pit Bulls (Jimbo & Celeste) were there to offer up doggie kisses and help dispel myths about the breed.
These images I hope capture some of the fun and engagement of this event. Enjoy! (And here’s my daughter’s take on Figment from her newspaper article)

I was in Philadelphia last Saturday checking out some of the city’s sites and ended up at the Reading Terminal Market in Center City, with food ranging from pastries, cheesesteaks (of course!) seafood and more.
Then Sunday, back in NYC, hoofed it over the East River to Brooklyn Bridge Park for Smorgasburg, an amazing food fair in DUMBO. Some amazing food vendors there with all sorts of dishes–and donuts too! Both venues offered great photo ops and I’ll have to get back to Smorgasburg again for some more photos — and lunch!
All photos were shot with my Nikon 1V2. I continue to be impressed with this camera. Powerful camera in a small package.
