Green,Gold and Red

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Do you see the three faces in this picture? Every time I passed this spot the man was sitting there. In fact I looked up this location on Google Maps and the man was in the satellite view still sitting in his chair. :)

Well the big day is here at last and I'm on the road headed west. Just me and my two cameras. I"ll try to post some snapshots from my hotel rooms now and then. I'm taking the time to explore some new places on the way. I should be back to a normal blog routine in 3 or 4 weeks.

Have a great weekend!

Faces = (horse, lion, man)


  1. Yes I do see the three faces.
    Can't explain it but I'm feeling sad...have a safe trip. Looking forward to more pictures.
    Take care.

  2. Great photo, and how unusual that he's always sitting on the stoop. Have a great trip exploring our wonderful country.

  3. The horse, the lion and the man..could be a good title for a fable, a kind of fairy tale to each life to children..
    Beautyful and colorful shot!
    be careful on the road!

  4. I saw the three faces!

    Travel safe!

  5. Yes, I see the horse and lion faces, but that is seriously eerie about the man appearing on Google Maps street view!
    Bon voyage!

    Wonderful colors-and yes on those 3 faces.

  8. That's awesome! Both the picture and the fact that you looked the location up on google maps and he was still sitting in his chair.

  9. It makes me wonder if he is real or a statue. I wish you an enjoyable and safe journey. Can you tell us where you are going? Please share a few photos along the way.

  18. Hi James !

    I hope everything is okay with you...

    I just wanted to tell you that I published at last the pictures I took of the tapestry of Bayeux :

    I'm not sure I'll be able to keep them, since taking picture is not allowed in the museum... :/

    See ya !

  19. he dropped acid, the world changed colors, and he didn't even notice..

  20. Good luck with the travels.

    Can't decide if this is a photo of contentment or sadness.


    P.S. When you take a photo like this, do you ever give the person in the picture a copy?

  21. I can't believe that picture was taken in PA. It looks so British to me. lol Great shot (wonderful color).

  22. Enjoyed viewing this photo.
    Wishing you the best of luck on your new adventure. Take care!
