My mission, now that I live in the Lancaster city is to enjoy it to the maximum. My number one of enjoying it will be to photograph it with my phone, day in day out. So, this morning as I left home to go to my meeting in downtown Lancaster, I took an unfamiliar road. I can’t even remember it. I pulled my motorcycle next to the curb and pulled out my iPhone, snapped a few photographs that are full processed by iPhone apps and resized through photoshop to fit the dimensions of my custom blog.

This church in Lancaster is a perfect one for weddings. The location is great! Lancaster has some of the finest traditional architecture complete with exquisite brick and mortar walls. I will be photographing more of these buildings, and posting them. I also will try to keep bringing updates from my street on South Ann. So far no incidents, but I want to be able to document the life on that street, either through words but preferably through photographs – even though that might be a little too dangerous. What do you think of these photographs?

Finally we have moved home and are now living in Lancaster city. After years of staying in Manheim township and then months in Brickerville, we have embarked on a new journey of city living, and not just anywhere but South Ann Street! Inner city!
As with any moving, this one has also been crazy.

I for one hate moving passionately but was very excited about this one. I am now close to people, a lot of people and I love that. Plus, many a ticities do happen in the city that we have usually missed. It is also cheaper in the long run. For example, the Brickerville commute was costing us about $60 in gas every week, has a large yard for maintaining etc.

There are several reasons why we have moved to the city and I am wondering if I should make a dedicated blog for it, but let me just say that for now, life is exciting, it’s a new chapter and we do love our new house. I will post some photos of the new house and the old one. We did not move with any furniture and are looking for offers. Craigslist is another place we are looking for deals.

Oh, we don’t have the Internet yet but the convenience of the city is such that I can jump on my new motorcycle and go to prince street cafe and use their wifi on my device! The photo below is an iPhone photograph taken at night.
