    Spent the day in Philly yesterday, including an hour or two at Reading Terminal, but also out on the street, at my favorite South Philly Hoagie Shop, on the trains, etc. Took a zillion shots, there are about 20 up in my gallery. All but one are B&W - there were a few that looked as good or better in color, but the series generally worked better in B&W - the one exception works (to the extent it does at all) ONLY in color. Also, I took the 9-18 and the Pany 20 and the great bulk of these are taken with the 20, which is quickly becoming my favorite lens. Here are a few:

    Ray, I didn't see this thread yesterday - thanks so much for posting these photos. My "votes" go for your first and last - very strong and thought provoking!

    Thanks so much for all of the comments. As usual, the way other people view the stuff I've shot has made me look at it differently. You folks reacted to shots that I'd barely given a second look and not reacted to stuff I really kind of liked. So, what the hell, I'll toss a few more up just in case anyone feels up to surprising me and teaching me again. Including, for Streetshooter, a totally different and far busier shot of Dinics (and more the way I always think of the place than the far more beautiful and elegant shot he posted recently)
