This is literal home. Philadelphia. The City of Brotherly Love. And this is the view from my office window. But objects may appear closer than they actually are. Zoom lenses are great. Still, I love my view of Billy Penn.

My city is a great inspiration as you will see in my photo blogs and history-related articles. I am also inspired by my ancestors. Not because they were necessarily important people (yet some actually were literal “Big-wigs”) but because I like to think about the characteristics that get passed down through the centuries. I am sill learning about my roots. I definitely don’t like everything I’ve uncovered. But it is a part of our American heritage and I am determined to make sense of it all. Or perhaps merely shine a light.
