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
I was sitting at the red light. Saw the gorgeous tree blossoms. Quick shot through the windshield. No time to capture what happened next. The man and dog appear from behind the barrier and return to the woman who was waiting for them.

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.
How does light affect an image? Time of day. Time of year. Direction. Intensity. Source. Pollution. Weather conditions. Thinking about the quality of light. Taken from E’s mother’s apartment window4/4/09 in New York City looking North.
