2012 was a great year for Philadelphia on a couple of fronts, the city gained numerous accolades on the tourism end, and our food scene made national headlines. Although not everything is peachy keen (the income disparity and unemployment being major issues), there was a lot of positive momentum that those who live and work in the city can be proud of.
Photography is powerful; with the rise of instagram local amateurs stepped up and started appreciating the city via their photographs and projects like Philly Love Notes added to the afore mentioned positive momentum.
Some of my favorite photos were taken in the first half of the year, the summer was especially fun; wandering around and discovering many interesting nooks around Northern Liberties and taking in some of the great architecture around West Philadelphia were highlights. After the jump 35 of my favorite snap shots of Philadelphia.
