Hi Guys, Here's the updated details for Sunday's Meetup:

We'll start by meeting at The Reading Terminal Market,
51 North 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107-2954
across the street from RTM is a small concrete park, we'll meet you there. In the event that its raining, we'll meet inside RTM by the 12th/Arch St entrance.

Here's a loose guide for the Routes. We will either break up into two groups depending on preference meeting back up at 4pm at McGillin's Ale House, or select one as a group. As requested, I've broken this into a rough time frame. As with all meetups, we'll take it as it goes. We don't have to cover this much territory. It's all up to you :) Route 1:
12pm - 1pm China Town to Old City
1pm - 2pm Old City over to Washing Square
2pm - 3pm Washington Square to Headhouse Square
3pm - 4pm South Street to Broad, Kimmel Center to Love Park
4pm - Head over to McGillin's Route 2
12 - 1 Chinatown to Love Park
1 - 2 Love Park to Art Museum
2 - 3 Art Museum to Rittenhouse
3 - 4 Rittenhouse to Kimmel Center
4pm over to McGillin's

McGillin's Olde Ale House
1310 Drury Street, Philadelphia, PA

We have a group already on flickr, #phillyflickrmeetup, where you can share you shots from theh day.

    I got to Philly late. But followed one of the routes as best I could and had fun all the same. I spent most of my time shooting in the Reading Terminal Market (posted my pics on the group site). Hope to see you folks at another event.

    Hi Guys! I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who made it out yesterday. I had an incredible time, & I'm thrilled to have met so many new photogs in Philly! I hope you enjoyed yourselves & made new friends too. Sorry about the bar in the end...who'da thought at 3pm on a Sunday they'd be packed?! Loving all the shots in the #phillyflickrmeetup group & can't wait to see the rest as they unfold. Have a great week...I'm looking forward to the next time we get together! Thanks again, xoxo

    I am really going to try and make it. I will be coming in from NYC by bus. I don't know my way around Philly or how easy it is to get from the bus stop to the meeting place. I will probably take Bolt which has a stop a JFK & North 30th. Any suggestions?

      Once you reach Philly, you'll be using SEPTA. Get on the Market-Frankfurt line heading East and you'll get off at either 13th Street or 11th Street. Reading Terminal is located on 12th Street between Market Street & Arch Street. http://www.readingterminalm...­

      Posted by Isaac D. P. February 14, 2012
  • Isaac D. P.'s Photo

    Just a suggestion, but a place-by-place schudule would help with the "lost photographer" effect that is inevitable in these types of large gatherings. For example, saying that we're going to be at Reading Terminal from 12-1, Independance Hall from 1-2, The Historic District from 2-3, South Street from 3-4, etc would help keep things organized, and allow people to split off and meet back up if they wanted to. Just expecting everyone to agree on where to go when we get there is going to be chaos.

      good idea! i'll have up two proposed, timed routes later on today. we can pick one or the other, or split up meeting back at the end at McGuillans for beers...that way if anyone can't make the meetup, they can still meet us afterwards for a drink!

      kaitlin, we'll be wrapping it up at McGillian's so if you cant make it ahead of time, you could always meet up with us for a beer and a chat at the end : )

    I haven't been to a Meetup in quite awhile now. I've made many friends through flickr through the years from Philly and afar. I'm getting quite excited to meet a ton of new-to-me people. I see some familiar names RSVP'd, but 90% of you are new to me! In terms of population ratio, we're doing better than my hometown for next week ;)

    Will there be anybody with signs or anything like that so that we know that we are in the correct spot at Reading Terminal? Should we just enter through the 12th st entrance or is there an easy way for those of us using public transit to find where you plan on meeting?

    Holly, might I suggest making the 'Philadelphia Meetup' group on flickr that we can all join, add photos to and keep in touch with each other before and after this walk...and on future ones? I know you have that #phillyflickrmeetup group...seems a good place to use. Perhaps you can just encourage everyone to join it??

    Just warning to everyone. If you attempt to setup a tripod the Rangers will consider you a professional and issue a fine. I just recently found out. I was lucky and got off with a warning. (You should be aware of the location of Park Rangers) All historical site are under this Federal regulation. If you feel you need the tripod I would get a permit. My suggestion is just bring favor camera and lenses and enjoy. Can't wait to meet everyone. I'll buy a drink for the first person I meet.

      Hi all. Here's my photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photo...­

      Meeting at RTM would be good, but photos in the market itself would be hard with a crowd on a weekend day. You get the most variation by heading south and east through the historic district/streets and then into South Philly/9th Street Market area. I'm up for anything though.

    Love the location ideas.
    I'm a sucker for Old City.
    As it gets closer, we will know more , especially weather wise. If it's nice there are so many parks. If it's cold, Reading Terminal would be great.

    Posted by Audrey Graham A. February 8, 2012
    • Holly's Photo

      that's what i was thinking. Reading Terminal, although crowded, is a good jumping off point as its right off of suburban station and within easy walking distance to China Town, Love Park, City Hall, Rittenhouse Square in one direction and Old City in the other.

    RTM is packed on the weeknds and a bad place for big crowds. If you want photos of the PA Dutch, they're not there on Sundays either.

    South Philly, starting at the Italian Market, is a good mix of streetscapes, people and architecture.
