Great Day in Philadelphia

Perfect day to get into Philadelphia on Wednesday. 
 We saw beautiful wall murals before we even parked the car.
If you ever go to Sabrina's go with a BIG appetite.

It was close enough to the Rodin that we walked on over passing the new Barnes on the way.

Our docent/guide was excellent and we learned some about the Thinker and the Gates to Hell

The gates are not really gates at all as they are not meant to open but to be displayed.
It is rather large with a lot to look at, so I just focused on some of the parts that I found most interesting.

It was still pretty early in the day when we finished at the Rodin so we walked on to the Museum of Art.  Although we went hoping to see some Stieglitz images, and did, we ended up enjoying the Outsider Art Exhibit a lot more. Get this...they gave us a free headset for this exhibit and it was attached to a GALAXY Cell phone...very intuitive and lots more info.  Really cool feature. 

Here is one of my favorites from that exhibit.
