About This Walk

We’re going to explore the Olde City area of Philadelphia beginning at the Ben Franklin Lightning Bolt. We’re going to take a quick walk up the Ben Franklin Bridge walkway to shoot a panorama of the Philadelphia Skyline, then walk through Franklin Square. We’ll then walk south into Independence Mall where we’ll have great views of Independence Hall which we’ll walk behind for more photo opportunities. Sauntering east, we’ll walk among historic buildings and gardens.

We’ll move northward up 3rd Street among City shops, and galleries. If time permits at Arch, we’ll go a quick couple of blocks past shops for an iconic look at the Ben Franklin Bridge from the street below, the continue back on Arch past more of the mix of 18th-21st century buildings back to Independence Mall ending at The Bourse. (The Bourse is scheduled to reopen in August. If it’s not open in time for our walk, you will be notified of a change in the end spot.)

If you have any questions or comments, be sure to ask. While I’ve never led a walk in the World Wide Photowalk before, I regular lead many wildlife and travel photowalks in the Philadelphia area and in much of New England and the Middle Atlantic States each year.

  • Ned Levi Hi Everyone, We're just a month away from our photowalk together in the Olde City area of Center City Philadelphia. I'm looking forward to meeting you have having an enjoyable walk together. In the next week to ten days I'm going to re-walk the route to make sure all is well and that there are no detours or other problems that will cause us to make a slight change or two in the route. It's a short walk, but make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. If you have any questions, this is the place to ask them. I'm monitoring the discussion area daily. See you next month.
