Colorful Mosaic Streets in Philadelphia

While touring around Philadelphia this past week, we walked through an area close to Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. We planned to visit there, but that $15 ticket price changed my mind.

Instead we walked around the neighborhood on South Street, and checked out Isaiah Zagar colorful mosaic murals on buildings and alley walk ways. For free. HA!

I've always liked the colors and patterns of mosaics, but these mosaic murals had extra. While you can see the artwork in large view, when you step in closer, you can see more details and more artwork.

Like with the corner of this mosaic window. After I zoomed in, I discovered so much more. Can you tell which area I zoomed in on? Hint, look for the pink square on the left (right?).

I wish I took more photos while there. But now I have a reason to go for another visit.

And maybe, I might pay that $15 ticket to enter Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. Maybe.
