24 Hours In The Life Of The City

November 19, 2012 |  by  |  Last Light  |  , ,

 

Editor’s Note: Philly Photo Day doubled in size this year, from 900 submissions, to 1,800, which made picking out some of the most interesting images for this exclusive sneak preview that much harder. Indeed, there was so much fantastic material that we’re running another 20 photos next week. Photos from last year’s Philly Photo Day can be seen HERE and HERE.

The folks over at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center will be exhibiting all–yes all–of the photos at the Crane Arts Building, 1400 N American Street. The opening reception is Thursday, December 6th at 6PM, and it’s well worth checking it out in person. Seeing all those photos from just a single day–Friday, October 26th–is a reminder that one of the chief charms of this city is its inexhaustible variety.
