Walking around Center City Philadelphia yesterday, with no particular place to go for a few hours, I found myself shooting photos of architectural details. I possess no special knowledge in this area; I was just focusing on parts of buildings I found interesting.
|The icing on this cake is made of bricks.|
|Probably pretty old bricks on Locust Street|
|Yellow bricks, Walnut Street|
|Yellow bricks, different design, same building|
|Some thought went into this facade (Chestnut Street)|
|Holy Bricks (North Broad Street)|
|Paving Bricks (from Locust Street)|
|Painted bricks, 15th and Market Streets|
|A crazy sampler of brick technique at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art|
|Closer-up of PAFA|
|On Chestnut Street|
|Curtis Institute of Music, Locust Street|
|Also Curtis on Locust|
|15th Street (This building, which resembles the Medici Palace, has been repurposed as a gym.)|
PS Look closely at that arch: the stones alternate rough-smooth-rough-smooth. Would we notice that from the street? Hmmm.
