Watery Love in Philadelphia

If you enlarge the top photo you might recognize the four eagles on the left building from another post. You might also see the Cira Center again it's in the background and slightly to the right in the bottom photo.
The bottom picture was taken at the base of new, tall and really cool building which I'll show more of inside and out in the future.

Yeah I remember the four eagles .....damn nice pics...

Julie said...

I like the fountain James ... and the square ... however, I bet that in winter this entire area becomes a windy canyon.

Ebie said...

Great shots James. Hooray for watery and brotherly love, in PA. I love your photos!

Love the LOVE!
It sure takes me back to my high school days. The 70's were all about peace and love. I have a silver toned necklace with the same shape of this sculpture.
Great shots!
And, the fountain looks refreshing in among the glass and concrete.

I was just driving by this today : ) So pretty. My friend got her engagement pictures with the love sign. They turned out so delightfully!

Hope you are doing well!

Looks like Philadelphia is leaning toward "philos" in the 1st photo.
Marvellous photographs.

I remember the eagles, it was the rule of four post (or something like that). They stole that Love art piece in New York, don't they?
The last building is very interesting, awaiting more info and pictures!

Ai Shiang said...

Hello James, I know I have many questions haha! Just could not help noticing it. Have those pics been enhanced?

Hilda said...

That LOVE art piece just shows up everywhere! Yet I've never seen a single one here. I like it with the fountain and surrounded by tall buildings of different architectural styles!

Bibi said...

Beautiful photos/s. This "LOVE" was photographed by me too, in NYC, though I imagine this is the Brotherly Love version, in Philly.

SandyCarlson said...

Bim said...

If I remember correctly, this statue was placed there during our country's bicentennial and when it was removed the owner of one of Philly's sports teams bought it a few years later and returned it to this spot.

Haven't thought about it in years, thanks for sharing!
