Unexpected Gallery Two

Working on a different computer today-  I saw a few more unexpected themed photographs although  I already posted for the weekly photo challenge.   If I dipped into the hard drives I could go all week I am sure.

I skipped the “couch on the front lawn” shots.  Those are almost expected these days.

Some deja vu for longtime followers, thanks for looking again.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

The challenge of unexpected seemed fun but challenging.

Added a couple you’ve seen but seemed good for the theme.  Knowing when to stop adding to the gallery is the difficult part.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

The wordpress weekly photo challenge is Silhouette.  When I hear that word I think of the little black paper cut- outs of children’s profiles mounted in a black oval frame.  They used to be popular and hanging in homes.  But yesterday I was photographing this display of bras created for October- Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The wind was brisk and it started to rain.  The bras hung on a metal tree sculpture at American Eagle campus on the South Side, Pittsburgh, were blowing like flags.  This photo is unretouched and is in color but looks black and white without any adjustments.

Last year there were thousands of bras strung across the adjacent Hot Metal Bridge which I posted.

A reminder to schedule a an overdue mammogram.

A time to think of all of those who battle this disease, family and friends we know and love.

And a snippet of video to show the wind and rain effect on the scene…

Bras Across the Bridge

Sponsored by American Eagle. After Breast Cancer Awareness Month the bras will be laundered and donated to charity.   A friend spotted them and emailed me and suggested the Hot Metal Bridge display for the blog.  Of course, it was the day I did NOT bring my good camera. I took a Pano on the iPhone.
