Delaware Water Gap: The Great Outdoors

In early October a group of my college friends decided to do a weekend camping getaway.  We chose the Delaware Water Gap in Northern New Jersey.  With autumn weather upon us, it was a perfect time to camp - very few bugs and nice cool evenings.  Here are a few shots from that weekend.

Philadelphia: Open Air Lighting Installation - Part 2

Before the Open Air installation ended on October 14th, I made it a point to walk along the Ben Franklin Parkway and see what it was all about.  While the lighting installation is visible from miles around the city, the primo viewing locations stretch from the Philadelphia Art Museum to Swan Fountain - offering some stellar shows with vibrancy and intensity.  The installation is synchronized to audio tracks recorded by locals using an iPhone app and then broadcast over speakers at select spots along the Parkway.  It is at these points, hearing the audio, that the light show makes the most sense.  It was definitely an interesting exhibit by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
