In my travels with the Fire Department I’ve been all over the City. I get to go behind the scenes often, places where most people never get to go or see. Since I am an amateur photographer as well (DOUBLE THREAT) I started taking pictures along the way. I have a slick little digital camera that takes real nice pictures. I figure shots of Philly would be a nice addition to the blog so here we are. This is Eastern State Prison in the Fairmount section of the city. It was closed down years ago but personally I don’t see anything wrong with the walls. It is currently a tourist attraction. It’s a little creepy but if you are in the area it’s worth a look. It’s a short distance from the Art Museum. I think Al Capone did some time here as well. Anyway hope you like the shot. CaptainAmerica

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

NEVER FORGET 9-11
Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
