Ben Franklin

Thought I would share some of the public art in Philadelphia. Benjamin Franklin gets around - he can be found in many places in the city, including his grave. I love his lightning hair!

Mural - Philadelphia

This temporary mural covers work. It certainly makes strolling through a pleasant experience.


This is part of a mural on the side of a pub. You have to look a while to find all the whimsical details - a flavour of Philadelphia.

Building a Village

This was in a store window - part of a village built by children. The "slate" roof was beautifully done. Some buildings even had graffiti - so much part of our modern cities.
