In the City of Brotherly Love

I am more than a little behind in posting about some of my recent travels. A few weeks ago we were in Philedelphia briefly. John was busy with work related stuff while I tooled around the city on a beautiful sunny day. Independence Hall
Robert Indiana's Love sculpture looking up the boulevard toward the Philadelphia Musuem of Art.

Looks kind of like a set on a Hollywood lot, but is in Center City Philly instead.

The gigantic pipe organ (only a small fraction of it is visible here) at the old Wanamaker's Department Store (now Macy's). They play the thing twice a day, but they never really open it up--I suppose so as not to disturb shoppers--so listeners have no idea what the instrument can really do. One day I will get there for an actual afterhours concert. The only way you can really appreciate the organ.
