"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Illumination Deux

Today when I read the Retiring Sort’s blog post with the  beautiful Moravian Stars in NYC, I remembered a star display I photographed in January 2010. It was a block from West Penn Hospital on Friendship Avenue.  It was magical and they were suspended between several row houses’ yards. Not sure if they had them up this year or not.  This is a p.s. to the Weekly Photo Challenge.:Illumination.

  4. Very nice, Ruth. I certainly hope they hang them every year. They’re really quite special, the effect unique.
