Meandering with MikeK in Tacony

You don’t have to be a Photo League member to come on my Photo Walks.

Meandering with Mike K in Tacony

Got rained out in April so trying again in September. 

Lets meet at Larndner’s Point at the foot of Leverick St. There is free parking here and at the end of Devereaux St. 

The trail is nice and views of river and bridge outstanding.  If the group is up for it I suggest we hop in one or two cars and ride over to Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Its free and quite extensive with frog ponds, egrets, birding stations, lagoons etc.

A good time to bring a long lens. There is a nature center building with exhibits.

Alternatively there is a linear park just north along Keystone St and then we could go to explore the Tacony Historic District. This was the neighborhood the Henry Disston developed for his workers. Housing, culture and recreation. The main street was Longshore Ave. Between there and Princeton Ave for several blocks are tons of historic houses and buildings.

So come on out  and get your nature fix. See you there!

$10 paid at start.  Free for first time attendees to my photowalks. Come along and have fun and get to know us.

Meandering with Mike K – Fitler Square Edition

To Meander : following a winding course: a meandering lane. Proceeding in a convoluted or undirected fashion.

To mix it up a bit this will be an early evening trek. Gotta get the golden hour skyscraper shot from the Schuylkill Banks boardwalk. 

Come on out this Sunday evening for a “Meandering with Mike K” relaxing photo walk. This time we will explore the Filter Square area of West Center City, my favorite part of the city; so much Victorian architecture and laid back places.

Meet at the Good Karma Cafe at 331 S 22 St at 6:00 pm and get coffe-ed up if you want.  With a name like that you can’t go wrong. 

We will plan on checking out some lovely side streets like Rittenhouse St and Delancey Place. Those Victorians really built with style. Then we will head to Fitler Square, a quaint little park with the bronze goat and more. To Gavin’s Cafe for an Argentinean empanadas. Then to Taney Park, home of the Little League champs. Check out the playground and dog park. Up and over the train tracks. Then onto the trail and over the boardwalk for fantastic views. 

We will get off the boardwalk at South St and head east. Past the Children’s Hospital new research center and other condos going up further down. Then north on 22nd to Lombard and to the famous Doobie’s Bar. The classiest dive bar around. Good beer, food and conversation. Don’t be surprised if you hear people talking about poetry. The place looks like a dive but the people are not. 

$10 paid at start.  Free for first time attendees to my photowalks. Come along and have fun and get to know us.
