A Day & Night Out on the Town w/Jing
A SEPTA train approaches the R7 station in Levittown, headed toward Center City Philadelphia.
The roof of the Kimmel Center on Broad St., where the Philadelphia Orchestra plays.
Jing and I saw the Nutcracker ballet at the Academy of Music on Broad St. This is the curtain before the show.
Jing and I on the steps of the Franklin Institute. We returned to see Harry Potter on one of the most advanced IMAX theaters in the world, but alas! It was sold out!
City Hall from West Market St.
Makin' Smores in Cosi's in Rittenhouse Square.
Jing trying on a $240 coat along Walnut St.
The paparazzi must have taken this photo as I was coming out of my dressing room.
During the holidays, the city provided colored lights to show off City Hall.
At the end of the night, Jing got on a bus for Ithaca and I took the R7 line home from Market East Station.

Christmas Eve in Philly and @ Grandmoms, 2005
Jing at Love Park, Philadelphia.
The architecture of the side entrance of the Free Masons Lodge in Center City Philadelphia.
Liberty 1 and Liberty 2, the two tallest skyscrapers in Philadelphia will soon be eclipsed by a new building, scheduled to break ground in January, 2006..
The Free Mason's Lodge in Center City Philadelphia.
As you can see, I take my cheesesteaks very seriously. I enjoyed this one at Rick's in the Reading Terminal Market.
I have always liked this sculpture across from City Hall in Center City Philadelphia. The artist intended the clothespin to resemble two lovers embracing about to kiss.
Some architecture around 10th and Market St. as Jing and I walked toward Chinatown.
Oh baby! It's too bad all these bottles were gifts!
