Walnut Street Bridge Harrisburg

When I first visited Harrisburg, I was driven down Front Street, where there is a long, quaint park along the river. I was amazed at the cute buildings perched right across from the water - no levee, no walls, and no real space between the river and the road. It was a real switch from the Ohio River in Cincinnati - the geography and cityscape are nearly complete opposites, and I was in love with the fact that Harrisburg was 'adorable.' I'm still honestly shocked when locals seem off-put by me calling their city cute, but it is truly is from my perspective. While I'm fine not living here (I technically never lived in the city, I lived nearby), I do enjoy working downtown and driving down Front Street every day. I've been wanting to take photos at this bridge forever, and I finally set up one day after work. I was surprised no one got caught by my camera considering the amount of people that passed me. I must be really good at making things look completely desolate at 5:30 PM.

  3. I always love seeing this dress- it fits you so well. This is a very...I dunno how to put it classy yet somehow also bohemian or rather nature-y looking remix. I love all the subtle details like the brown loafers with the gold/bronze details that match that lovely bracelet and the belt. It is understated yet works magnificently.

  4. I think Front Street in town (where the park is) and some of the area around the capital is adorable - most other areas not so much. If anything that town depresses me. Especially when you go from 22 over the bridge to the capital - that bridge is in rough shape! Half the lights don't work and there are weeds everywhere!

    Have you been to city island?

  15. Wow! Lucky you to be able to get such clean and clear shots at 530pm! In fact, you're blessed to be able to find so many places to get to do some nice photography. As for me, I'm still trying to find those places =D
