Heinz Stacks and Moon in the Clouds from Troy Hill Road

Left the Rehearsal Dinner at Penn Brewery to go across the street to my car.  This is what I saw.

The scene was elusive in camera, not wanting to focus, but a spectacular view. I really enjoy night photography and need to make a point to get out more at night.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

Converge.  

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!

The city is there, I swear

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

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.

Nightime.
