I love Philly. One of my favorite spots there (or anywhere for that matter) is the Magic Garden. Walking through is a jaw-dropping experience….literally. I saw many people walking around with their mouths open! My first impulse is to say that words cannot describe it. However, if you click here you will get the full, fascinating story of mosaicist Isaiah Zagar and how he created this wonderland as well as many other murals and community projects in the South Street area.
When I told a friend that I had been to the Magic Garden she replied, “people take pictures there don’t they?” That was certainly my impulse, but I take pictures everywhere. I think with something this complex and awesome you almost have to narrow your field of view from time to time. I recommend that you go and just wander around, take some pictures if you want to, then find a place to sit, put away your camera and immerse yourself in it.
