I take a lot of photos, and thought I’d share a few from my visit to Philadelphia last weekend.
None of them, of course, show anything even vaguely touristy…
I don’t know the name of these things — shutter-hold-backers? — but I love how this one looks like a highly-polished seahorse.
I am crazy for weathered, beaten, battered objects. This bit of alligatored paint was in the doorway of a building we walked past on our way to brunch.
Found this flattened tulip in the yard of one of the city’s oldest churches.
Isaiah Zagar has covered many city buildings with his astonishing mosaics. This is a tiny fragment of one of them.
We went to the Fourth Street Deli and ate huge sandwiches. Their collection of early cash registers included this one.
We found many narrow, cobble-stoned streets and mews. This was one.
A detail of a church stained glass window. Jewels!
I hope you enjoyed these.
I plan to share more photo posts.
