January 30, 2005
I had plans to go away for a few days to Springfield, MO, for work. This was my goodbye to freezing-cold Philadelphia the night before I left - January 30, 2005. I've been shooting a lot of photos in this area lately, mainly to document construction of the Cira Centre, our beautiful new skyscraper that is really starting to gain some attention.

Yes, it was really cold out.

Center City views from the west
2400 Chestnut: some say the building is ugly, but it looks great in the right light.
Looking south from the Chestnut Street Bridge toward the Walnut Street Bridge

South 23rd Street, I think
