iPhone Photography of Philadelphia and beyond.

I don't claim to be a photographer or be any good at taking photos. But I love my city and enjoy taking pictures of it with my little iPhone camera. Occasionally I travel to other cities and take photos there. Sometimes I take pictures of my shoes. I'm artsy like that.

All pictures are taken with an iPhone 3G and haven't been edited in any way other than re-sizing. They belong to me. If you're going to steal them (I have no idea why you would want to steal them), at least buy me dinner first.

If you have an awesome iPhone shot of Philadelphia (or any city), feel free to send it to bargeekblog@gmail.com, and I'll post it and give you credit. Please no photos of people unless you have permission to put them on the internet.
"It is easy when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God-given right to have it. When I decided to go to Alaska that April, like Chris McCandless, I was a raw youth who mistook passion for insight and acted according to an obscure, gap-ridden logic. I thought climbing Devils Thumb would fix all that was wrong with my life. In the end, of course, it changed almost nothing. But I came to appreciate that mountains make poor receptacles for dreams."

"Seventeen Warnings In Search Of A Feminist Poem"

1. Beware of the man who denounces ambition;
his fingers itch under his gloves

2.Beware of the man who denounces war
through clenched teeth

3.Beware of the man who denounces women writers;
his penis is tiny & cannot spell

4.Beware of the man who wants to protect you;
he will protect you from everything but
himself

5.Beware of the man who loves to cook;
he will fill your kitchen with greasy pots.

6.Beware of the man who loves your soul;
he is a bullshitter.

7.Beware of the man who denounces his mother;
he is a son of a bitch.

8.Beware of the man who spells son of a bitch as one word;
he is a hack.

9.Beware of the man who loves death too well;
he is taking out insurance.

10.Beware of the man who loves life too well;
he is a fool.

11.Beware of the man who denounces psychiatrists;
he is afraid.

12.Beware of the man who trusts psychiatrists;

13.Beware of the man who picks your dresses;
he wants to wear them.

14.Beware of the man you think is harmless;
he will surprise you.

15.Beware of the man who cares for nothing but books;
he will run like a trickle of ink.

16.Beware of the man who writes flowery love letters;
he is preparing for years of silence.

17.Beware of the man who praises liberated women;
he is planning to quit his job.
