- PHILADELPHIA THROUGH PICTURES

A friend of mine called me at work yesterday and asked if I wanted to do a one night road trip to Philly. When he said all expenses would be paid through his company and I could pick out whatever restaurant we would dine at for lunch the next day, I said I was in.

For about 5 solid minutes driving through New Jersey, there was a smell so bad I wanted to jump out of the window. I think it was right after the Verizano bridge:

Arrived around 11:30 PM after somehow wandering off I-95 and driving into Delaware. Upon arrival we were starving and ate at the famous Pats King of Steaks which was pretty damn good but rather filthy for a food establishment. They have a celebrity picture of an NSYNC member on their website so duhhh I had to go.

Across the street is Geno's which is also famous. I almost ate another one there but didn't want to go to bed feeling too nauseous. My pic of Pat's didn't come out so here is one of Geno's instead:

We met this crazy guy in a jumpsuit wandering around the cheesesteak district muttering a bit. When he saw me with my camera he said, "Wanna take a picture of me? Go ahead!!" So I did. He had a yellow jumpsuit/flannel pajama thing on under his coat. There must have been 30 cute girls in that area but I can't take pictures of women like that without the fear that one will yell out PERVERT!!! So you get this guy instead. I call him Jumpsuit Johnny:

Hotel room kinda sucked. I left my charger for my new phone there. Oh and I realized in my haste while packing I not only took two shoes from different pairs...but yes they were both for the left foot. What the hell is wrong with me?:

Are you sure that smell didn't come right before the Verrazano, say around the Bayonne exit? I find that it usually smells like Brussell sprouts there.

Excellent work -- I love the the photo blog! That jumpsuit guy reminds me of Uncle Harry.

Awesome! Beautiful people pictures. I'm always scared to take them of people I don't know for fear of attack.

Great pictures. The guy sitting is my fave. Jumpsuit Johnny is totally sweating.
