A few shots I took while doing a photo shoot on Sunday afternoon.
Serenity (noun): The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”
Yes, they said they threw us a curveball with the challenge for yellow right in the midst of silver and red and green holiday colors. No lemons available in the house.

Central Park Taxi Cabs
Ben Huberman’s challenge of the week. He says, “Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together.”
And what classic photo from my Pittsburgh archives could I choose, except where the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River converge to create the great Ohio River? Three Rivers!
Anna and Lala converge at james’ parents’ farm
Ocean and sand converge at sunrise. St. George Island, Florida
Double Yellow Lines converge at Little Italy Days in Bloomfield.
Railroad tracks appear to converge even though we know they are parallel. Ohio.
Perhaps this one is for MERGE where the traffic attempts to converge
Geometric lines of light, Market Square. CONGREGATION kinetic interactive video art installation
The Beatles song Come Together comes to mind
On the way to school, I drove up McArdle Roadway to Mount Washington.
This is shot from the Duquesne Incline Platform. A blanket of October 1st fog.
Almost a Wordless Wednesday.
Photographing at night is one of my favorite things to do.
The city looks the most beautiful at night.
I scanned just a wee portion of my archives to get a representative sampling.
Nighttime- quiet, dark. Sparkly, twinkly too as I seem to shoot a lot of lights.
Anna and Maura and Henry getting ready to go to sleep.
The city lit up feels magical to me. Every November they have Light Up Night
Goorin Brothers Hat Shop on Bleecker Street, New York City
Inspired by my son-in-law James. A bus on Bryant Street in Highland Park
Chinese New Year Table.

Love to photograph the decorated Christmas houses at night.
St. Paul Cathedral – Oakland Pittsburgh
Balloon Man at Little Italy Days in Bloomfield
The barn at Bobbijo and Tim’s wedding.
I posted this or a similar one for fire and ice. Definitely nighttime
Getting a sandwich late at night. The sandwich with the french fries and coleslaw right on it.
The Greyhound Bus station at night in Pittsburgh
Drove back from Columbus to Pittsburgh with the youngest three grandchildren for a vacation at Grandma’s House.
We went downtown toPNC Park to see the Pirates game. It was Pittsburgh Public Schools Night.
Wasn’t sure how I’d manage with all three ( 5, 7 and almost 9) but it was fine. There was a mixture of fun and boredom for them.
A hot summer night. No rain. Saw a lot of students from school and the grandchildren seemed fascinated as the kids called my name.
Our seats had a great vantage point for the activity on the Allegheny River, too.
Gateway Clipper Ships Pass Under Roberto Clemente Bridge on the Allegheny River
Anticipating the release of the pitch Pirates lost to Cincinnati Reds 6-5
Always like to get a shot of the Cotton Candy Man
A lot of energy left at 10 PM. Home to Grandma’s House.
From the archives-
The sky color grabbed my eye. The painterly quality of the Allegheny River. Lights reflected are a favorite of mine.
You can’t have Pittsburgh city shots without plenty of bridges.
And lit at night? Always satisfying to find the skyline in different moods from different vantage points.
While seeking photographs of my grandson Michael (his sister Anna is going to create a story board) for his First Holy Communion Party on Saturday, I found these two Pittsburgh night photos.
If you’ve been a blog follower for a time you may have seen these two photos from October 2011
Threes. Many things come in threes. It’s a strong number- a favorite number of many.
Still on the theme of three with a triptych story with the suggested 3 pictures will be coming in the near future……………
Thanks Mark for this thought on the Three Rivers even though the stadium by that name was demolished in 2001
(see implosion below)
