Boathouse RowJune 26, 2007

Boathouse Row

EXIF:     Aperture Priority, Evaluative Metering, EV 0, 1/125 sec, F/4.5, ISO-100, 78 mm (125 mm equivalent)
Camera/Lens:     Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT, Sigma 55-200mm f/4-5.6
Location:     Boathouse Row, Philadelphia, PA
Notes:     Since I've moved to Philadelphia there are many places I've wanted to see that, for some reason, I had thought were much farther away than they really are. Like Eastern State Penitentiary, which I thought was far outside of the city. It turns out it's just in Fairmount, and we drove by it the other day. Amazing. Also, these boathouses, I assumed would require driving to get to. I think I thought that because soon after we moved here and my parents came to visit, we walked up the path along the Schuylkill River and my dad commented that he used to row for Penn at the boathouses, but that they were farther up. Since nothing short of a 50-mile walk would deter him from walking anywhere, I assumed they must be at some great distance from where we were. But they're not! They're just a few steps beyond the Fairmount Water Works, which is just a few steps behind the Art Museum, which I regularly reach now when I go out running. Anyway, I made the discovery of the boathouses' location this weekend when I was out with the Philly photobloggers, and had the added bonus of walking around with people who knew where to go to get the best views. This is one of my favorite photos from the day.

(Yes, I see the lens flare at the top. But that gives it a slightly vintage look, don't you think? Just say yes.)
