Another Phanatic!

Another one for the series of Phillies Phanatic! This guy can be seen on 7th and Market. It looks to me like he is the "logo" Phanatic because his t-shirt is covered with various logos.
(sorry the picture is a little blurry, I took it from my car while stopped at a red light!)

Boathouse Row

This is a view of Boathouse Row from the river. The small waterfall is from the river's water works, which used to be the biggest water treatment plant in the country, and is now a museum about water.

View from the Schuylkill River

On a boat tour of the river you can see this statue of a fisherman. He was lost during a flood but found again, although his fishing pole was lost forever!

Cooling Off

The fountain outside the Comcast building in Center Center seems like a good place to cool off on a hot summer day!

Another Phillie Phanatic! This one is near the Love statue and has the Love logo all over his shirt! Cute!

Urban Garden

This garden is right outside someones house. The flowers here are so beautiful! I'm not exactly sure what kind they are, but this one is absolutely perfect.

Starry Night Phanatic

Here is another Phillies Phanatic statue I saw around the city! This one seems to be painted in the theme of "Starry Night." I wonder how many of these statues I will see?

Art, or just Graffiti?

This lovely gem recently popped up on the front of this garage building which I pass by almost daily. One day it wasn't there and then the next is was. I'm not really sure what the message in this painting is? I'm not really sure if the owners wanted this painted on their garage or if some random person just went ahead and did it. Honestly, I think its pretty ugly, but that's just me. Which of course leads to the age old question "is this art"?

100th Post!

I was going to do something special for my 100th post, but it kind of snuck up on me! So, maybe for the 200th post! I took this picture this morning at the train station on my way to work. I call it "There's Still Hope." The Flyers play again tomorrow night for the Stanley Cup and they are down in the series 3 games to 2. But, no one in Philadelphia will give up hope that the Flyers can bring another win to tie the series!

Baby Fox

I'm sure that foxes aren't unique to this area but I just think this little guy is so cute that I had to share this picture! We saw him in Valley Forge Park, which is right outside Philadelphia.

Parking Wars

Ever seen the show "Parking Wars"? Well, one of the cities it takes place in is Philadelphia and people here just love to hate the PPA (Philadelphia Parking Authority). This picture is a little bit of poetic justice, with the PPA car being towed! Made me smile and I wasn't the only one taking this picture!

Funny Signs: The Runner Up

This is my runner up funny sign for the theme day (yesterday). Its from the Adventure Aquarium, which isn't exactly Philadelphia, so that's why its my runner up! This sign is from inside the bird/hippo room you can go into at the aquarium.

Theme Day: Funny Signs

June's theme day for City Daily Photos is "funny signs." I've seen this sign several times and always thought it was funny so I snapped the photo! I found out that the theme day funny signs was coming up so I saved this special picture for it! The sign explains to the buyer the many uses for golf clubs, besides golf of course. And if there are too many zombies there are more golf clubs inside the store, don't worry!

(the whole golf bag)
