Pictures from my walk to MarketMarket

Some quick fun facts:
  • The distance from Philadelphia to Manila (8,533 miles) is about 28 times more than how far the space shuttle Discovery was from the Planet Earth (about 300 miles).
  • Of course, if we were to fly as fast as the space shuttle does when it re-enters the atmosphere (Mach 25, or 18,500mph), we could be back home in 45 minutes.
  • 45 minutes is the time it takes us to drive from Philadelphia to the Starbucks on the PA Turnpike on way to Lancaster County (in good traffic).

Yeah, those white flowers have been popping up everywhere lately, and I've been trying to get a good shot of them for days.

The trouble is, they're very fragile and delicate, so they get all droopy when it rains and it's always overcast skies, so the white color is hard to capture. Plus, they're always in a big bunch, so it's tough to get them against a solid background. (And they're probably illegal to pick, so i can't bring it inside.)
