I got a new camera this week and went out yesterday for a shoot to try it out. It wasn’t the best light or the most interesting subject matter, but I tried anyway. Well, it turns out that the dial is not on correctly so none of the settings correspond to what is pictured on the dial. I didn’t realize this until I had already taken a number of photos on “color sketch” setting when I thought I had it on shutter-priority. Whoops. Yet somehow I really like how some of them came out. Here’s a sample.

I kid you not, I walked by this house again a week later and it was under renovation, complete with closed sidewalk and completely redone second floor. Francisville is an odd place. It currently appears run down, but house prices are going up and up, and there’s new construction everywhere. A mixed bag. Without much in the way of shopping, grocery stores, amenities, or great public transit, though, it’s not my bag.

I adore this house, though. It has such an abandoned charm.

This was taken in South Philadelphia with my humble phone shortly after moving here in the fall of 2013. I caught the sunset as I walked west down Tasker Street away from the Broad Street Line. I hope to move to this neighborhood soon.
