At 11:30 a.m. later that day it was jam packed with cars and trucks and even a fire engine that I tried to get out of the way of. (I finally had to turn the corner even though it wasn't where I wanted to go.)
And when I went back at 7:00 p.m. to pick him up to bring him home, there was some traffic but not like at noon.
I wanted to show you some pictures of Philly at night. It's a very different place than in the middle of a work day. Some of these are my pictures and some are from Google. I grabbed my camera every time I got a red light. I love Philly day, night or any time. I hope you enjoy them.
This is my picture. The tall lit up building in the background is the Comcast Building.
Fourth and Market Streets. You can see how light the traffic is.
This is Spruce Street. I was just about a block away from the hospital at this point.
This is Independence Hall. I got this photo from Google. I wanted to take this shot. I was right there and even had the camera in my hand but the light changed.
Another photo from Google. Again, I was right here but couldn't stop and get a shot. The Comcast Building is on the left and Liberty Place One and Two are on the right.
I must have driven through Chinatown about six times. Another Google shot.
This is City Hall and Broad Street. The Academy of Music is on the left where the bright white lights are. I wasn't here that night but I sure do like this picture. (Google shot)
And finally a shot of center city from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Again I wasn't there and it's a Google shot. This is another one I love. I used to work right around there and would love walking to the train station to go home at night and seeing all these tall lit buildings around me. I find the city beautiful and invigorating. I guess I'm a real city girl.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to the night time city. I will have an update on Joe tomorrow. Thank you for your prayers. He is getting better much faster than expected and I know it is because of everyone praying for him.
(Yes, I'm in the bathroom. No, I'm not on the commode. My husband asked me that.)
