My bro-in-law, John, mentioned that he'd like to see the sunshine!! Sadly, at the moment, our weather really is rather showery and inclement, but come summer time we'll be glad that we had the rain now!! :o/ #8740362

All through downtown Philadelphia can be found sidewalk cafes, filled with people enjoying the noontime respite with friends and colleagues.
It was shortly after noon on Locust Street when I came upon these beautifully arranged table settings. The weather was perfect, and a Maitre de was standing just out of the frame awaiting the day's first diner. June 25, 2010 @ 12:30 pm
