Skate PHL!, the Fall edition

—Just another day outside, skating, right?  Nope.  It is an awesome sun-filled wonderful day skating!  Never you mind the hills and the miles, staying outside is absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth every minute spent doing it.  This Saturday Eric, our fearless leader, decided to take is to see some fall spectacularity in Philly general area.  It’s pretty amazing how far you can venture if you’ve got an afternoon to spare and a pair of skates on [and a camera to share it with y’all].

The Philadelphia Museum of Art—our usual starting point.

I’ll be taking some shots with a focus on the buildings around us. Enjoy seeing Philly’s history, right in front of you.

Skating through cemeteries is somehow peaceful, as opposed to how I thought it’d feel—morbid.

The break repair job looks very very inappropriate from certain angles…  Just use your imagination on this one.
