    Hey, Charles Hess (II)

    I posted this in Help Files, but it now occurs to me that you are the hall monitor in this part of the world, and I have a better chance of getting hold of you here.

    I need a few suggestions of where to do some street shooting in the Philadelphia area.

    Topic: The seemier sides of life. Elderly people.
    When: Weekends/soon.

    I have some familiarity with the University City area and West Philly. I can also find South Street. South Philly is a complete unknown to me.

    Any suggestions would be helpful and most appreciated. Thanks

    I'm not Charles but...

    I've been to Philly a few times. I'm sure there are much seemier areas, but I found Market Street to be a rather curious area. Upscale Hotels, City hall, and a few blocks away, stores selling gray market electronics and big gold jewelry. From there, you can go to China town [much smaller than NY's China town] - there's some neat people watching at night in the area near the Trocadero Theater.

    Charles of course can give you much better suggestions!

    Hi Tom ... Megan's right, Market Street can be a smorgasbord of the human element. Email me ... I'm off from work on Sundays, maybe we can meet up and hit the streets together. If not, email me anyway and I'll give you some suggestions.
