Philly...


...fences phences.





After getting Thing #1 married off last weekend, I spent the next couple of days in town showing off my phabulous Philly to my out-of-town gal pals (who are also quite phabulous).  






And I realized that if the proverb,

"Good fences make for good neighbors"

is indeed true...







...then given the abundance of fences of the historic wrought iron-type in Philly, it's totally understandable why we are known as,

"The City of Brotherly Love"






Fences, fences, everywhere fences = Beaucoup good neighbors = City of Brotherly Love youse guys!






Brotherly love, and the Philly phence.  We should discuss this theory over "one, whiz, with".(translation:  one cheesesteak, Cheez Whiz, with fried onions).  I think I'm on to something.







Here's where I "link up" today.

  2. You are right - your city does have awesome fences ... and you take awesome photos of them. I'm afraid I'd be pretty puzzled to hear someone say "one, whiz ... say wha??

  4. Gorgeous! I'm glad they enjoyed their visit to the city! Are you still using your 18-270mm? I'm trying to decide if I should buy that one for our upcoming trip.

  5. Stunning shots - I love seeing this wonderful city through your eyes!! Maybe now I know where my love of wrought iron was born! The hint of brick everywhere is wonderful. And the iron contrasted with the soft, growing vines and flowers. Happy Weekend!

  11. Fabulous photos - I particularly love the one of the pumpkin behind the fence - love the contrast with the orange of the pumpkin and the black of the fence.
