The Navy Yard Reborn

We will take a stroll around the Philadelphia Navy Yard, which combines the older buildings that comprised the old Naval Air Base with a redeveloped area, which comprises many examples of 21st Century contemporary architecture. See many decommissioned ships, as well a working shipyard that refurbishes and repairs current vessels. Whether you like to photograph abandoned or historic buildings, ships, or urban landscapes with sleek up to date architecture, you will find something to capture. The terrain is flat, so although the grounds are extensive, and there are many benches and places to rest, this walk is for everyone.

I have led five Kelby Photowalks and walked in three others, so be prepared for a learning and sharing experience. Walkers will be provided with maps, tips and in the lead up to the event, photos taken at various places in the yard, so you can plan your time.

At the end of the event, we will meet and review our images. One of the most rewarding parts of the WWPW is seeing just how other photographers choose to interpret the same terrain.

I look forward to having another engaged and engaging group of photographers with whom to share the morning!

  1. I am looking forward to walking along with my fellow photographers. See you out there.

  2. How’s the parking in that area? What other transportation options are there, if parking is not available?

  3. Joe: There is plentiful FREE street parking at the site. For those not coming by auto, it is a short walk from the NRG station on the Broad Street Line.

  4. It’s been a minute. Can’t wait to catch up with you, and see what I can find this time 😉

  5. Where do we submit photos? From what I read, we are to be clicking on a tab labeled ” “LEADERS CONTEST” under the map on your walk.
    I am not seeing this.

  6. I, like Sharon, don’t see a “Contest” tab as the following instructions that were given.
    “ Click on the “CONTEST” tab under the map on your walk page”
