Rima came to visit from Cali. Naturally, this warranted another road trip to Philly.
marsOne caught some quick prayer action in an alleyway on South St in Philly. There happened to be some pretty fresh Philly handstyle up on the wall. This is one of my favorite shots.
Rima and Z post up in front of the Rocky statue in Philly, in front of the Art Museum.
Mariam was pretty happy to see all this random mural we passed by in the city. Even though it was still unfinished, she was like ecstatic.
Mariam points out feautures in the mural to everyone else. The art basically covered the entire wall of an elementary school in West Philly.
I have to confess. I did place them in front of this mural, but we had to take advantage of it somehow…
A closeup of City Hall in Philly. This historic building stands in the center of downtown Philly.
In the open air market on 52nd St, Mariam stands in front of a shop window full of mannequin heads.
The view from the top of the Art Museum steps. City Hall stands at the center, with the Ben Franklin Pkwy connecting it to the museum.
More evidence of Philly’s artistic culture. This enormous mural was painted on the side of a theater in North Philly.
Inspecting sneakers in a shop on South St.
Once we got back, we hit up Ben’s Chili Bowl in DC. Apparently, this is Bill Cosby’s favorite spot in DC, they got his name and picture like everywhere inside.
