Friday afternoon I drove a colleague to the Strip District to pick up her car. It was raining. She’d gotten new tires.
At the red light, down Herron Hill, I saw a Life Size Chipmunk making her way to the intersection to cross Liberty Avenue. (The same spot I saw the groundhog scurrying under the cars.)
Oh that’s right, it was Halloween.
Office Party? Chip or Dale? Alvin? A leftover from the Furries
Down by the Ohio River.
An eclectic gallery. The back of a big stop sign.
The Byzantine Church from McKees Rocks Bottoms, too, where the bells were ringing Sunday.
A stop at La Gourmandine Bakery on Butler Street for a brioche.
A little camper for a weekend getaway
Good thing they have an alarm system
Hey, the place has AC
Church Bells were ringing in the tower
A home filled with disappointment Sunday afternoon. I wonder if they have to water the shakers.
and a line out the front door, everyone getting their French baked goods on Butler Street in Lawrenceville
Stopped at the Car Wash on the way home
Centre Avenue on the way home from school. The lush green growth of summer.
I turned around after I’d passed it by,
pulled over to the curb, waited until the rush hour cars zipped past.
The reflection on the windshield was so bright, the atmosphere muggy, a bit of haze.
When Flat Ruthie was traveling courtesy of friend Shuey, she learned the origin of Kudzu and how it can grow a foot in a day.
The first photo with the red parking sign seems better but why I shot it so close to the edge of the frame is beyond me and I did it just the once.
Submarine sandwiches are called lots of things – depending on where you live.
A grinder, a hoagie, a sub, a hero, a blimpie- to name a few.
Last Sunday afternoon, I filled up the tank in Clintonville, Ohio before heading to Pittsburgh and saw this sign.
A new name or a typo? Well,no typewriter was involved but a misspelling? or intentional naming of a new type of sandwich.
Shot from inside the car through the windshield. With the iPhone.
My DIL said, why didn’t you go in and ask them. Never occurred to me.
Oh, I’ve seen car and I’ve seen train…….
Columbus, Ohio- Saturday afternoon. Shot from the second floor of the parking garage on our way to the car show.d
A sliver of a city scene. A bit of sunlight. Shapes and lines. A car driving down the middle of the road.
I went and looked at all my blog posts tagged transportation and I ‘ve shot a lot of cars, trains, buses, motorcycles, taxis and trucks.
Street Parking Space Savers- revisiting Snowmageddon 2010. Many people are experiencing more snow right now. So is it a Pittsburgh thing? You see all kinds of chairs reserving parking spaces all around the city after someone has shoveled out their space, planning to return to it, later.
I’ve seen a port-a-crib to reserve a parking space!
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”
Spring weather and sixty one degrees.
Winter weather and 30 degrees. The wind kicked up
A significant drop.
We were headed out to see the Nutcracker Sunday afternoon. The car window offered this view.
What I saw when I got to my car after school-
Photographed in the school parking lot.
All I did was change the angle of my phone camera within a few seconds of the first shot.
Two photos are un-retouched
