Day 9 - Philadelphia Part 1

Back to some vacation photos!!  We had a great time in Philadelphia!! We walked and walked and walked and walked some more.

Got up real early and went to see Ben Franklin's resting place.
Ben Franklin Gate

Ben Franklin Fence

When I saw this stone and read what was on it - couldn't help but laugh... and take a photo!
Great Sign

Love the architecture!

Loved all the signs on this old building!

You're right--that headstone is a hoot! Think he had one late night house call too many?? Really like the shot of the top of the iron fence--nice POV on that.

Love the fence shot! And the alley way is beautiful! I can imagine an engagement shoot there! That last shot has a lot of character in it too. I really like it.

Margaret said...

Ha ha! That headstone is funny! I love that first shot. Great perspective! All those buildings are gorgeous and just perfect for photographing!

Maria said...

Why don't we have headstones like this anymore? This one is a hoot!

Suzy said...

I love the alley shot, and the corner shot of the China store is really intriguing! Wouldn't you love to know some of the stories that played out of the people inside that building? It makes me think of the book, Girl in Translation.
