Julius's Tumblr On The Beauty of Philadelphia

These are a few photos that inspired my design for my Mapped Image of Citizens Bank Park. I realized at first that this stadium has enough unique pieces that I could map it from the aerial map. I also realized that if I mapped anything else it would be weird, because I’m a Philadelphia kid. The green outfield grass inspired me because I think that that shade of green is very appealing in an image. It livens the image and the smell of outfield grass makes me very happy. The “LOVE” sign in the park was part inspiration because some of the fonts around the stadium are roughly the same font as this perched sign. My image of the ballpark from a camera literally sitting on home plate made me realize how cool of a place “The Bank” is and needed to be shared! - Julius 

This is a brief clip of the Clydesdales leading Pat The Bat Burrell and the Philadelphia Phillies on their victory parade after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays to win the MLB World Series. Go Phils. One of the coolest days in Philadelphia history. 

Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. The most famous of bells. Even more so than Alexander Graham Bell. Without this bell, freedom cannot ring! One of the biggest tourist spots in all of Philadelphia and the nation.

LOVE Park. In the city of brotherly love (Philadelphia also happens to be the 5th oldest city in America; fast fact). No wonder this is the greatest city in America.

Boathouse Row along the Schuykill River is one of the most famous sites in all of Philadelphia. Nothing like brilliantly lit houses to lead you home on a winter night. It’s truly a wonderland.

The Linc in Philadelphia is one beautiful place to watch the Philadelphia Eagles! Considered one of the two crown jewels of the Broad Street Philadelphia Professional Sports Complex, Lincoln Financial Field is a great home-field advantage.
