Location: 24th Street and Washington Avenue
The Story: The two-and-a-half miles of Washington Avenue are a visual feast. Whether you’re driving, walking or biking, you get a raw glimpse of Philadelphia’s cultural diversity and essence — from the Mummer’s Museum on Second and the Italian Market on Ninth to the lineup of mom-and-pop taquerias and Asian supermarkets stretching from 13th to Columbus Boulevard. This image was taken while parked on a median on Washington Avenue. A long stretch of refrigerators were displayed alongside a tan stucco building with a red, white and blue sign that read, “Scratched & Dented Appliances.” I had to wait about 10 minutes before a customer walked by so I could complete the shot.
