Philadelphia Photo Journal, Part Trois

I get it. They really like their Liberty Bell here . . .

. . . but this is bordering on obsessive.

My dear Viviane (a.k.a. Saltine Cracker) works on an “Irving Street” in Cambridge, Massachusetts. And here is a picture of an “Irving Street” in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. What a coinkydink!

So many pillows.

Beautiful rays of Southeastern Pennsylvania sunlight.

The main reason I took this photo is because I fancied this girl’s outfit: a blazer over daisy dukes. I never would have thought to pair these two fashion items, but somehow it worked.

Creepy display in front of an optical store.

University City apartment facade.

I wonder what Sigmund Freud would have to say about this photo.

Flowers at a stand in Reading Terminal (which is essentially an indoor, year-round farmers’ market).

I arranged the tops of a red chile pepper and two serrano peppers, then took a photo. It reminds me of how things might look if chile-tops could conduct orchestras. [Insert riff from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony here.]

  1. Teeheehee, good commentary once again. That is a creepy ass skeleton/robot thingy-ma-bob in the window! I love how you got a picture directly in front of it, so it looks like your face…only, we know that’s not Gina’s gorgeous face. Crazy optical illusion action! And about that girl’s outfit, you know me….I don’t really pay attention to fasion, but I remember seeing that type of outfit in a recent girly magazine saying how that’s the new style…..interesting eh?

    1. Yeah, the skeleton was bizarre. And it’s so weird to think that underneath our layers of flesh, muscle, and organ, that’s more or less what we look like . . . except that we don’t have timepieces behind our eyesockets.

      I hadn’t heard that about the blazer/daisy duke combo being the “in” thing. And here, I thought that Philadelphian gal was starting a new trend. Hmph.

  2. Keep the blog going. It is fun to see what your thinking.

  3. 🙂 Thanks, Diane. 🙂
