The Tall Ships were in Philly last week for a weekend-long festival. The festival itself was a huge mess with long lines to get on the boats, boats closing early because the crowds were too great, and really poor crowd control.
I went there with dreams of gorgeous shots of gorgeous ships but I don’t have the wide angle lens required for that and the crowd was way too messy to really have a space to stand back and get a decent shot so I focused on photographing people instead. This first photo is probably one of the best I’ve even taken of a person.
The following photos are also a few of my favorites from the day. Props to the living statue ghost pirate for posing for me.
