Project Flow, I stopped along the Schuylkill Banks and snapped a few shots. They capture the heat and color of the day.
That's Paine's Park up there, the brand-new skateboard park that sort of blew me away with its size and sweep; that's the Philadelphia Art Museum in the background. My friend Mike rides the curves of this park every weekend morning. I could have sat and watched for hours.
And then the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center and then a sneaky shot of Cira Centre. Cira is a Cesar Pelli designed/Brandywine Realty Trust building that marked the start of University City's renaissance. It is also the brain child of Jerry Sweeney, a city visionary whose leadership along the Banks and within the gridded city is largely responsible for changing the way Philadelphians and friends experience the city. I'm proud to count Jerry as a friend.
Next a broader view of the Schuylkill and Boathouse Row.
Next the back face of the museum with its fields of flowers.
Finally a few of the young people I met while talking about rivers and words.
Come to Philadelphia.
