In order to travel light, I only took a Lumix LX3 digital and an Olympus Trip 35 film camera with me during a recent trip to Philadelphia. I used the Trip 35 for some night photography and here is my take of Liberty Bell shot on Fuji Superia 400 Xtra, with the Trip set on manual @ f2.8, 1/40 sec.

Competing for Height

Philadelphia City Hall with William Penn on top looking out over the city. For a long time there was an unwritten agreement that nothing could be built higher than Penn's statue. This rule has long since been broken.

For traveling light I love to take my little Lumix LX3. It has a razor sharp Leica lens, which at f2.8 performs beautifully in low light. It is very versatile with 24-60mm zoom (35mm equivalent)
