Walking in Philly + Art Museum

It was a pleasant day, this last Saturday, here in Philly, so I’ve decided to take a walk with a friend and share the findings with y’all. Philly is a great city—walkable. Lots of interesting things to look for here and I’ve tried to hit up my fav spots: Rittenhouse Park, the Art Museum, and La Colombe cafe.

These plants weren’t told that it’s winter, I don’t think.

Art Museum surroundings are always nice.

It’s late fall, yes, but everything is very green, still.

OK, the Art Museum is always splendid, but today we’ve decided to check out the older works and here we stumble on some of my favorite doors.  You know what’s amazing?!  This was someone’s actual door for a while… fucking incredible!

Or this one, too.  Can you imagine?!

Right around the same time, the medical tools… not much changed in the last few hundred years, let me tell ‘ya.

I love this gallery, for some reason.  I keep coming back here every time to look at these chicken scratch paintings taking up most of the walls.

Plants are blooming outside.

La Colombe is as nice as always.  One of the better coffee shops in Philly (too bad I’m not the only one who thinks that and the place is always completely jam-packed!).

In the 30 minutes that we were here, the artiste here didn’t take one sip of his coffee… See-and-be-seen, I suppose, right?

philly-walk-25-of-32

Mmmm.  Pepper

Oh, I’ve been meaning to take a photo of this for a while… We have a giant squash-like thing growing here…

philly-walk-30-of-32

Oh, look at this amazing door… FUCK!  Look at the door hanger… Fucking Trump already got here… Sigh

This bee is confused… It’s too late for you to be out, you dumbass!

See what I mean about the perfect weather for a city walk?  Philly is great for these walks and the good thing is that you can always find somewhere to walk to. I like it here :)

See you around.
