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.
Sunday morning I met my friend and her son to photograph his senior pictures at the boathouse where he rows.
It was foggy and felt like fall.
I could hear a tugboat chugging along the river but could just make out the lights. Not even an outline.
Getting down to the river.
Pretty thick fog.
You can see the lights of the boat.
Can’t see the bridge
Sun and light, reflections.

What I found after lunch at the inservice today at Pittsburgh Filmmakers-
Sure this King has been shot a thousand times but it was my first sighting and he made me laugh out loud when I looked up and saw him.
I did attempt to purchase an ice cream sandwich ( I know, I know….) from the frozen vending machine and the lid of the freezer compartment opened and the vacuum hose was at the ready to suck up a sandwich but the machine was empty and rejected my dollar bill. Waaaaaaaaah!
The man at the equipment desk with the retro Pirates hat came to assist and told me that sometimes, if you are lucky, the ice cream sandwiches get stuck together and he has actually seen as many as FIVE get sucked up and dispensed. Several colleagues waited with me, hopefully. EMPTY!
And here is the shot I got when I left my driveway on the second day of back to the school year. Just had the iPhone camera once again.
My sister and I were on the phone and she had just asked me about my seeing things to photograph and am I always on the lookout for a good photo and I said I think I take fewer pictures now, that I am not obsessing about getting a decent shot blah blah blah and THEN-
And when I got to the red light at the end of the Liberty Bridge before the tunnel, I saw the fog enveloping the PPG building except for the pointy towers peeking through.
I opened the back window and took a quick shot.
On the way to school the next day I didn’t get a red light so no photo.
Day three! A red light and another quick pick of the city without the fog.
