More Dilworth reflections

I have been having more fun lately with the reflections created just after they turn off the fountains on Dilworth Park, in front of Philadelphia City Hall:

The Clothespin reflects in water left by the fountains on Dilworth Park at Philadelphia City Hall just now:

The reflections were almost perfect on Dilworth Park, outside Philadelphia City Hall earlier this evening:

The Dilworth Park fountains were set on high when we walked through Monday evening:

Silhouettes, undated

An artist paints his canvas on a pedestrian bridge in the Fairmount neighborhood, not far from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The 37-foot William Penn statue stands atop Philadelphia City Hall in the distance.

I have no idea when I took this picture but it was probably during the 1990s. I remember spotting the scene from my car and hopping out for a few minutes.

Masked messengers, 2003

Two young women don vintage gas masks while waiting for a peace demonstration to kick off on Dilworth Plaza outside Philadelphia City Hall on March 20, 2003, the same day US forces invaded Iraq.

I have covered a few violent demonstrations in Philadelphia over the years but I can’t recall police ever deploying tear gas here.

Metadata info shows that I captured this image with a Nikon D1H camera, a 1/80th shutter speed and f 4.0 aperture, but focal length and ISO data is missing.

Not in our name, 2003

About 100 young protesters from “Not in Our Name” and other organizations held a “die-in for peace” outside Philadelphia City Hall and later blocked rush-hour traffic on March 17th, 2003, while demonstrating against the possibility of war with Iraq. The United States launched the invasion three days later.
