The city of Brotherly Love - in our case sisterly love since I was there with blogging friends.
For some reason it is the little details that catch my attention and make me want to record them. Here a doorstep from a row of little red brick houses built in the 18th century. They reminded me a lot of England.
A yellow window reflecting more of the little houses - there was lots of red, yellow and green somehow.
A quiet darker doorway with a dead vine which manages to look decoratif.
And the brightest window/wall/window box combo - so amazingly cheerful.
I like things which look a little battered and shabby-chic, or, I suppose, just plain shabby.............
More of the same...........
What on earth kind of soda is this? A picture taken on the wall of a whole house made of mosaics.
The gilding is coming off but rather lovely even so.........
