Take a Philly picture … you could be a star

Today is a special day for shutterbugs in Philadelphia.

Philly Photo Day is trying to gather 2,000 photos in one day.

Sarah Stolfa of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, says this is the third year people have been asked to contribute their favorite photo taken today anywhere in the city.

“Take a picture of anything, a historic landmark, a favorite building one of our many beautiful parks, your co-worker or even your lunch,” urged Stolfa.

Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown took the first photo, of the Love sculpture to kick off the event which encourages people to take their favorite picture in the city today and upload it for a massive display. 

“It’s just another way of bringing the city together as well as something that is enjoyable upbeat and celebrates the city,” said Reynolds Brown.

Directions on how to upload the pictures can be found at www.philaphotoarts.org.

They will all be printed and displayed in December on billboards, SEPTA buses and trains creating a moving art show for everyone to see.
