Tom Cruise Movie, ONE SHOT, Lights Up 10th Street Bridge Wednesday Night

The movie is causing a buzz and some traffic around the Burgh.  One Shot is the name of the film after a novel by Lee Child.   On the way to my photo class I saw the lights set up on the bridge and a few giant movie lights on top of some buildings.  Heard on the radio Armstrong Tunnels would be closed.  Remembered my photo for the weekly challenge of fall, with the 10th St Bridge in the autumn light and thought I would go my usual school route.  Here is the series of bridge shots taken on the way home from class Wednesday night. A circuitous route but worth the detour in my opinion.

I could hear and see a car race and screech across the bridge as I photographed.  Next time I will bring a spotter to keep watch as I pulled the car over but it is dark and a bit creepy up on the top of Arlington Avenue, my route home from school. I have shot from this angle before and here is the link to the daytime photo.

Photo four has a bright movie light on the right of the photo.


Superman Contemplates the Jump

The fire alarm went off at church. Too much incense.  Had to evacuate the building. Here is Jack on the fence outside the parish hall where they were getting ready for the All Saints parade for the children.  He switched into his St. John costume complete with eagle.

Anyway, I sewed this Superman cape about 28 years ago for Jack’s Uncle Matthew.  Now Jack(4)  wants to wear it constantly.  Last night I had to sew some repairs. He was so happy that it could be fixed.

Last Christmas time he was into Spiderman and you might have seen Jack on his Uncle Matthew. If not, click here.  Matthew comes in from Croatia pretty soon for Laura’s wedding.  I hope he doesn’t find I gave his old Superman cape to his nephew.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Possibility

The challenge spoke of doors and paths, travel.  This is what Arlington Avenue looked like on the way to school Thursday morning.  The October light made the brick building seem to glow.  That is the color it was when I saw it.  No retouch on that brick.  Just morning sun.  I like to think that the start of the day offers POSSIBILITY.
