Going wild in the city

     On Sunday, I set off to meet some blog friends in Philly - Kathy (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out), Wendy (In Focus On Him) and Shay (Eye On The Sparrow).  It was a lot of fun - my first photo meet-up!  We wandered around the historic district, so I expected to capture shots of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, yada yada,yada...

     I certainly didn't expect to take shots of wild life!!!

 Okay, maybe it isn't exactly wild life.  But this guy just seemed to beg to have his picture taken.  Or maybe he was hoping for a handout...

This, however, was a little more unexpected in downtown Philly.

It looks like this was taken in a country setting.  Until you pan out...

Lesson learned.  The beauty of nature is everywhere!

More wild life in the city?

This guy seemed to think so.  We did get a few glances from passerby.

 I wonder why?

Thanks for a great day ladies!  Check out their blogs.  These girls have skills (besides bike-jacking) :)


  1. Had a blast too! Great to see you posting!
    How did I miss that shot of Wendy on the bike???

    1. Shay...who knows how you missed that shot! You should expect that from me by now!

  2. Haha...I'm meeting up with the Bike Jacker tomorrow at Boathouse Row if ya wanna venture back for another outing.

  3. Nothing better than girls day/night/whatever out...period! If I lived nearby, I might crash the party. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a fun comment. Still chuckling about your hubby loving the Captain as they share birthdays. Come on back and see me!! Margie

  4. Oh my goodness! I was wondering who was going to post that picture of me! What a fun adventure. I should have warned you that I like to bring excitement to the party...just ask Shay!

    I had a blast capturing Philly wildlife with you! Can't wait to meet up again! :)

  5. What a wonderful day with friends and photography!! Your "wild life" shots are great! I never have any luck capturing birds, they're just to fast for me!! Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving your kind comment!

  6. It looks like you really all had a wonderful and fun day!! I loved the bird shots, especially the one of the close-up of the bird in the nest!


Thanks so much for stopping by. xoxo
