I absolutely love winter in Philadelphia! And I’m probably one of the few people in the city who actually likes all the snow and freezing temperatures (this explains why I studied abroad in Denmark in the winter), but winter in Philadelphia can be so pretty. I grew up in Washington, D.C. and always loved going […]

You can view the first post from my visit to Eastern State Penitentiary here Like I said in last week’s post about Eastern State Penitentiary, it’s one of the creepiest places in Philadelphia but also an excellent place to take photos. The variety in texture and color can’t be beat! I went over some of the […]

Eastern State Penitentiary is one of the creepiest places in Philadelphia- but also a photographer’s dream. I’m not one for horror movies or anything scary like that, but a visit Eastern State Penitentiary was too intriguing to pass up (and if you don’t like horror stuff, don’t worry, it really isn’t that scary!). I enjoyed […]

From the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art to the street murals to the music festivals, there’s something for everyone here. One of the most interesting places to see art is Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, which is covered in mosaics (even on […]

One of my favorite Christmas themed places each year is the Christmas Village in Philadelphia! It’s located at City Hall and modeled after a […]

Glædelig Jul! 🙂 You may know by now that I’m pretty obsessed with Scandinavia after studying abroad in Denmark twice. I gave my dog a Scandinavian name, and this blog was first named after my Swedish backpack, just to give you some idea. So I was pretty excited when I heard the American Swedish Historical Museum in […]

If you’ve kept up with my blog from the very beginning, you’ll know that this started out primarily as a black-and-white photography blog. I explain the reason why I chose black-and-white photography in detail on my Behind the Blog page, but basically, I love the look of older film photography, especially with older cities like Philadelphia (I love […]

Christmas has come to Philadelphia, and it’s magical! I actually don’t mind walking Annika in the cold because we pass by so many beautifully decorated houses. In case you missed last week’s post, I did a holiday fashion photoshoot with some bloggers with the Christmas tree in Rittenhouse Square, and I’ve also been photographing tons other […]

I am so excited that the Christmas season has started! I’ve already posted a holiday gift guide, I’m already pretty much done with my Christmas shopping, and my apartment is all decked out with Christmas decorations (I’ll have a post with pictures soon!). Philadelphia looks absolutely magical this time of year, and I’ve been taking pictures […]

As you may know, I moved from North Carolina to Philadelphia about a year ago (you can read about everything I learned about living in Philadelphia so far here). While it has been an adjustment living in a new state, one thing I absolutely love about living in Pennsylvania is autumn. The area in N.C. […]

One of my favorite things about Philadelphia is the old buildings and quirky history (I’m such a history nerd!). If you haven’t been to Philadelphia, I’m sure you know Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are here, but there are a ton of other beautiful historic buildings in Philadelphia, too. One of my favorite historical […]
