Footloose in Philadelphia


I took the train to Philadelphia with no plans other than to walk around and take pictures of whatever caught my eye. This is just a small part of what I saw today. Maybe I should grow a beard like the guy in the bottom picture. :-)
I took some pictures that will be great for Skywatch Friday, I can't wait to post them.

Philadelphia is a wonderful town to wander around in. The sights there are incredible, just like these terrific scenes you captured, James. I look forward to seeing more...

and about the beard thing, I don't think so... Lucy wouldn't like it!!!

My kind of day, James. Just walk around and take pics of whatever strikes me at the moment. I can't wait until SWF after the tease you've given us.

The art work in the second shot is amazing! Great sights from your place. :)

Ebie said...

Hi James, you and me both could be a good team to be "footloose". I am all over the place. Your shots are really really good.
P.S. I am not doing any posts this week, just not in the mood because of what's going on about the brush fires. Very sad to those affected areas. See you around....
My main blog is here.
