Bottle Gate

I always walk by this gate and want to take a picture of it and I finally did!  The gate goes into someone’s side yard and is decorated with different color bottles in a random pattern.  Just another example of the interesting artwork you can see all around Philadelphia!

Theme Day: Statues

 

Pennsylvania Hospital, founded in 1751 by Benjamin Franklin and Dr. Thomas Bond.  This is the nation’s first hospital and the statue pictured here is in the back of the historic side of the building.

Scenes from Franklin Square

Welcome to Franklin Square!

Nothing Happened.

All over Philadelphia there are signs giving you information about historic sites and houses.  But this person decided to go the sarcastic route with their historical marker!

Saturday Cutie

Since its Saturday I thought I’d post something a little different than usual.  This is my dog, Rocky!  This photo is from Rittenhouse Square.  He didn’t get any cupcakes, though he tried!  But, he did enjoy the jazz music with us.
