Random Shots of My City

I chose these photos for Sunday in My City, a photo forum that has folks posting pictures on Sunday of their cities. I thought Wilmington NC should be included.

To participate, visit Unknown Mami and link up! Let’s visit and travel the world together.

Last weekend we walked around downtown Wilmington and I enjoyed snapping random shots. This odd looking fellow was guarding the doorway of an eclectic gift store on Front Street.

I thought the pier pilings on the Riverwalk had a unique beauty of their own.

A very distinguished looking gentleman and his date were dining at The Pilot House. (Pssst…..I think he might have been someone famous!)

Do you remember the scene in the Stephen King movie, Cat’s Eye, when the man was forced to walk a narrow ledge around a high-rise penthouse apartment? The building you can see here, peeking out above the trees is that building. It is called The Murchison Building.

I think these vines are some kind of peas. They were growing along someone’s fence down by the river.

I’m not sure what this scary looking creature is supposed to be, but he was begging to have his picture taken.

Old, wrought iron fencing  is prevalent on the streets of our original downtown district. I think it has a quiet, distinct beauty.

I really wanted to climb up those steps, “set a spell”, and watch world go by with a tall glass of sweet ice tea.

There is always someone on this street corner, trying to sell something or entertain you for tips.

Wilmington, North Carolina is a beautiful city; rich in history and natural scenery. As a Wilmington native, I am proud to show off my hometown. I love it so much that I have another blog called Wilmington Daily Photo. It keeps me busy posting a new photo of the Wilmington area every day. I hope y’all will check it out and see for yourselves why I think this place is so spectacular.

  1. Look at those beautiful purple pea pods? those are amazing. I love porches too and really miss those living here. I’d love to come and visit your city..it’s beautiful. Have a wonderful day!

  2. I LOVE your day out in your town. It is VERY beautiful! Who do you think the famous person was? His suit was nice that is for sure! I love the porch and the thought of sweet tea! And I even love the palm reader. I wonder what his credentials are for palm reading. Fabulous day! I always love coming to visit you here. It is a joy!

  3. A stroll through Wilmington looks like a walk though Americana. It’s beautiful.

    And those purple peas are really unusual. They’d looks great tucked in a fall floral arrangement.

    Hope you’re having a great Sunday. Thanks for sharing.
