a very late post from philly

The Magic Gardens

This place really is magical. A mosaic playground in the middle of the city. This man's art is all over Philadelphia, but it is concentrated in this one place ... an overwhelming amount of glass, tile, ceramic, old bicycle tires, and junk. And it is beautiful. I enjoyed everything about it, the only exception being his fascination with, and frequent use of, male genitalia. It was shocking every time.

Sadly, I didn't get many other pictures from Philadelphia. I always forget my camera, so I didn't capture the Liberty Bell or Independence Hall (much to my Dad's disappointment), or get any shots of the half marathon. Next time I plan to keep my camera on hand, but for now, these will have to do.

Plus, if people wanted to see more, they could always visit (and you can again too!)
