My friend Joanne’s flight was delayed so she was getting a bite to eat and then walking around Terminal A-East in the Philadelphia Airport, waiting for her flight to be called. Although she was eager to get to her destination, the delay gave her time to photograph all these colorful artworks. Creating a guest blog today was not her plan, it just happened. There was a lot of yarn!
IT’S A WRAP 2 is in Terminal A-East
“This exhibition features work by Philadelphia area artists(listed below) who were invited to create unique architectural interventions within the Airport terminal. Using yarn, fabric, felt, found objects, tape, paint, wheat paste, and wood, the artists applied their work to the ceiling tiles, columns, rockers, walls, walkway, and windows. They have visually transformed this location into an immersive and experiential art-filled passageway.”

Have a wonderful holiday . Thank you Joanne. Joanne’s most recent guest blog was the one of the bronze sculptures in Halifax Nova Scotia – The Volunteers.

Around 1850! Who knew?
The words Hendricks House on the historical marker caught my eye as I was a passenger in the back seat. We were at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck a couple of weeks ago and staying in Red Hook where this landmark is located. It’s the town’s Public Library.
Built in 1865. Randi pulled over so I could capture these pics.
“The Hendricks House is a rare surviving example of the octagonal concrete form of house construction popularized in the mid-19th century by phrenologist and author Orson Squire Fowler, whose book A Home for All (1850, 1854) launched a nationwide fad for octagonal buildings. Between 1847 and 1856, Fowler built his own octagonal concrete house in nearby Fishkill, which may have provided inspiration for local builders in Dutchess County”
I photographed the Magic Beach Motel in St. Augustine, Florida in January 2020. The motel was Built in 1951.
Definitely a retro vibe.
My friend Joanne, who lives nearby, told me there’s some filming happening at this location.
Here’s what I discovered on Google- “There’s still no word on what the series will be….”
Details are under wraps of course (click for news report) Secrecy is key. Lots of speculation. Seems to be a Netflix Production. As we discover the show, I’ll post an update.
I photographed this house before. New housing developments are all being built all around what used to be farmland, cornfields. Barns
Three views of the North Side of the city on Thursday afternoon. Photographed from the AGH parking garage.
St Philip the Apostle Church in Ashford CT , “was at the center of the small community of farmers here, most of them of Slovak descent. It was that community who helped to build St. Philip, literally with their own hands. Every day, as they went about their work in the fields, the farmers would set aside stones they found, and every weekend they shaped those into the walls of the church that still stands here.” From the website
I pulled in their driveway to take the photo.
