@refreshphilly talk


9ball pool tournament. Which we won. And then proceeded to go to vegas

The William Penn statue used to be the tallest thing in the city, sitting atop City Hall. I took a brisk walk from Suburban Station to Market East and clicked this cameraphone picture on my way.

This building is tall! I can't get the whole building in one cameraphone shot, and it still blurred (night photography and cameraphones don't mix), but I wanted to keep this shot nonetheless.

During the talk about User Experience (UX) the attendees got to share their thoughts.



After June 2010's Refresh Philly meeting at the Comcast Center in Philadelphia I was able to capture this 360 degree hdr'ed panorama. I usually aim for realism when I create my HDR images, especially when creating them for our virtual tours, this time I went for something with a bit more pop, color, and personality that would stand on its own and not need to be viewed in a virtual tour viewer.

I've always been fascinated by the mosaic mural at Septa's Market East/Gallery Station. Grabbed this shot while waiting for the R2 Train back home.

Normally, I'd trash a cameraphone shot like this, but as I crossed the street...and looked...up...I was in awe of the sheer height of the Comcast Center, so the blur of the shot matched perfectly with my "mind was in a blur" mentality.

Just a short nap. :) (obviously I wasn't asleep when I took the photo...but afterwards I did!)

Refresh Philly is a monthly gathering of local creative, technical and other interested locals that want to keep/make Philadelphia a vibrant place to live.


Grid Magazine is a local publication that is focused on making Philadelphia a more sustainable city.


Together they did a brainstorming session on how to bring Grid Magazine, a print publication, to the internets in a way that built a community and resource archive.

The view South of the Comcast Center, from the 45th floor window. I kept this landscape only because of the moon.

This is the only way I could get the entire building...I was actually standing across the street, crouching down! That place is TALL!
