Big City Scenes

A photo trip into Philadelphia over the weekend yielded the scenes below. An earlier scouting trip helped in getting closer to the results I am after. City traffic was shot with a small aperture for the starburst effect and to ensure sharpness throughout the image. A long exposure of 30 seconds created the blurred tail lights of the passing traffic.

My passion for photography has rewarded me with the opportunity to examine the world carefully. My approach is intuitive and I choose to impose no constraints – leaving myself open only to possibilities. As a professional designer I am drawn to images that offer a strong composition, pattern and rhythm. Creating images with a unique perspective while sometimes pushing the limits of traditional composition 'rules' excites me. Landscapes, nature subjects and things from the past are common themes in my work.

  1. I like the photos that you put on the net of Philadelphia at night. I do like to see a city at night time. It makes it look so nice. I wish we had more buildings in London.

  2. Hello Denise, My name is Jermaine Scott and I am a desktop publisher in delaware. I love your photos and would like to know if your work is available for use. I certainly do not mean to offend by asking you this and hope that you reply to my request.

    The Philly Night picture in particular. I would use it as a Header image on an upcoming gospel singers’ biography page, and it would not be altered. And you will be listed on her site as the copyright owner with a link to your page. (blog or website)

    Please let me know…and again I Love Your Photography!

    Thank You,

    Jermaine Scott
