What You'll Do

As the sun sets, Philadelphia's sky turns into a stunning backdrop that evolves with each passing minute, with the bold splashes of warm color giving way to the ethereal light of the moon. For professional photographer Rick Wright, this is the best backdrop to the city's historical architecture, and he shows you why during this three-hour walking workshop.
