Baltimore is currently plagued with dark skies and intermittent downpours, a perfect day to be confined indoors to catch up on work of both the scholarly and house variety. Last week, around this time, I was in the City of Brotherly love catching up with friends and enjoying the perfect weather at some of my favorite spots (UPenn campus, Philadelphia Zoo, Water Works/Art Museum area, Rittenhouse Square). This photograph was taken from the Spring Garden bridge over the Schuylkill River overlooking Boathouse Row (to the left) and the classical structures of the Fairmount Water Works (on the right). After crossing the bridge, I spent the next hour basking in the sun in the grass between the Water Works and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Perfect, even with the unfortunate smudge of bird poop that my new dress sustained. With the deafening sound of raindrops now pounding on the roof, what I wouldn’t give to be back in that moment!
