CCPhilly is an Instagram account run by street photographer Dave (@daeufer). His Instagram has a collection of amazing shots ranging from the everyday vernacular found throughout the city to the beautiful natural landscapes that exist on edges of the urban landscape.


DeadPhilly explores within the shadows, in the decaying urban environment and lurks within the crowds at sold out concerts. This guy is a great account to follow for all the urban explorers that love to see the Philly skyline at night. With the occasional backstage shot of a sold out show around Philly.

SavePhilly is another great Instagram account for the urban explorer within every instagrammer. SavePhilly curates pictures taken by other fellow Philly instagrammers that consist of a graffiti filled environments, and a variety of abandoned area throughout the city. Although, the shots I find to be most captivating are the ones where people manages to climb their way on to countless rooftops  within Center City. These adventurous yet ballsy pictures produce some breath-taking view of this beautiful city.

HiddenCityPhila is an Instagram account curated by @mmbixler @woodzuki @nathaniel.popkin and @mauleofameria. The name HiddenCityPhila pretty much speaks for itself, capturing the beauty within Philly architecture that we often oversee or ignore. They also do a marvelous job of documenting the retro and rustic parts of Philly that still exist.


PhillyLoveNotes is basically here to remind you why exactly you moved into the city of Brotherly Love. PhillyLoveNotes does a stunning job of accentuating the vibrate colors of nature. I also love this account because of the picture of the interiors of Philly homes, makes me want to cancel my lease and move into one of those pictures.
