This morning we had a visit from this red-tailed hawk, who has been hanging around Rittenhouse Square. He (I think it’s a young male) may be related to the pair who nested for several years at Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute:
Barn cat at Chamounix Equestrian Center in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park.
Lunch with goat at Chamounix Equestrian Center in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park.
We were scheduled to fly back to Salt Lake City today but Hurricane Sandy is keeping us here for a few more days. I hope everyone on the east coast rides out the storm safely.

While walking to the University of Pennsylvania I noticed this ad in a storefront on Walnut Street between 21st and 22nd. I’m fairly certain it would not pass code in Salt Lake (where I’m currently living).
The ad has since been removed.
Back in Philadelphia to visit my family and looking forward to hearing the Philadelphia Orchestra (where I used to work). Here is a shot of their beautiful hall, The Kimmel Center, designed by Rafael Vinoly, from my archives.
