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

What It Looked Like Four Years Ago Today

 February 2010-

There was a huge snowstorm and the whole city was covered with snow… for at least a month.  I was supposed to fly to Florida for friend Kristin’s big birthday and take photographs of the event.  Greater Pittsburgh Airport was shut down, no flights in or out. I  never made it to Florida for the weekend.  :-(.  (Happy Birthday again, Kristin!)

For those of you who’ve been following the blog since 2010, it’s a repeat.

You know how I like to take a color photograph that looks like a black and white. This is unretouched.

The big snow was the impetus for my beginning a photo of the day, and I’ve just kept at it since then.

p.s.  concerning yesterday’s post of French Pastries here are the details on the “dark chocolate something“-   heard from Lisanne at La Gourmandine Bakery and she said”The chocolate cake is called “Royal” and made of dark chocolate mousse with a layer of crispy praline and sponge cake”

  2. Ruth – That’s a terrific photo! I love that red shovel handle in the bottom right-hand corner. I’ve been following your blog for several years, but I’ve never seen this “first photo” that started your photo of the day. Anyway, just like you, I’m always intrigued by color photos that look like black and white photos. Excellent!

    Ugh! I remember February of 2010 very well. The best thing to come out of it was your photo of the day.

  11. And – who had the pleasure of clearing that vehicle out?

    • It belonged to my neighbor. I was fortunate to have a garage!

      • Whew!
        Poor neighbor though.

  14. Right now, we’re in between snows with the 2nd due early morning. Even so, seeing your photo is a good reminder that it could aways be worse. Thanks, Ruth … kinda. :)
