An old skyscraper, the Art Deco Suburban Station building from 1930, peeks out at left from behind Philadelphia's newest and tallest skyscraper, the Comcast Center, completed in 2008. Reflected in the angled blue glass of the Concast tower are the upper floors of the Mellon Bank Center across the street.

Behind the 'scrapers is lots and lots of city sprawling into the night across the Delaware Valley.

Comcast is currently building itself a newer and even taller tower, which is rising off to the right of the buildings seen here. The lower floors will be occupied by Comcast and Telemundo, and the upper floors will be rooms with a view in a Four Seasons Hotel.

In the shop window of L.K. Jikson's on South 20th Street, a few blocks from Rittenhouse Square, stands a woman wearing a dress made of fabric printed in chartreuse, orange, and maroon. Click on the picture to see an enlarged view: the maroon shapes in the print are actually jet airliners.
