Old City is one of my favorite places to shoot in Philadelphia. After studying in Florence, I found that light hits cobblestones in such an incredibly tonal way and I only see it in colonial cities like Philadelphia or Charleston.
You can’t miss the historical elements of this part of the city, from the brick buildings to the earthquake star studs on the sides of buildings. I love taking a walk early on a Saturday before the city is totally awake and catching that amazing light.
The Arden Theatre
Some of the best things about living in Philadelphia are the beautiful views you can get throughout the entire city. The Arden Theatre Company located in Old City is a great theatre – I saw Next to Normal there last spring with my sister.
