THE LIGHTING OF FIVE AVENUE OF THE ARTS BUILDINGS in Center City Philadelphia

OK I only shot two buildings. Last night there was a little pomp and
circumstance kicking off the nearly month long lighting of Five Buildings on Broad Street. (Originally I thought it was for the holidays, but I read somewhere the lights will be turned off on 12/2/07)
Life went on as normal for these dancers practicing for their next performance, but their building was taking on a different kind of exhibition as it glowed in a flow of colors to the beat of Beethoven
and the din of the city streets
next it was on to The Ritz Carlton


which was lit more in the style of City Hall a few years back (2005)some of you may be wondering how they do this type of lighting: This building is lit with individual color lights that sit on the ledges along the building and shine up.and this style of lighting
is controlled by this projector room across the street. (I was wondering what this box was when it was built about two weeks ago)see the projection figures on the passing truck. It looks like two lit lines on the panel truck.
