18th Art All Night 2015 Pittsburgh PA

Just got back from this wild event, the 18th ART ALL NIGHT in Lawrenceville.

Saturday morning I went down and registered a photograph that is hanging there now and I’ll pick it up Sunday afternoon.  This is the first year I’ve participated.  What a crowd!

Here are some of the patrons waiting to get into the warehouse to see the hundreds of artworks displayed. There are artists creating “LIVE ART” that will be auctioned or sold at noon Sunday.

Thanks for allowing me to blog you and your dogs!  Here are some Lawrenceville “neighbors” of the event.

Ephemeral – NYC


Took most these photographs of Steam/Smoke Streaming from around the city in various locations specifically for this week’s challenge  ephemeral

and added the light sabre on a knit blanket from home which is totally not with the NYC street scene but then

added  the New York City store window with the Shadow Lettering from the light.

As I arrived, I noticed sunlight.

“By covering surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by “a husk of light”, and the new vision “the cell of an image” (PixCell) is shown.”  Kohei Nawa   (artist based in Kyoto)

Floating Leaf Study

In the Highland Park fountain. It was late in the afternoon.

Leaves swirling, their shadows moving along with the water flow.

Almost looks like a sidewalk, the stone bottom. It was hard to show the depth.

Leaves in water are different from blowing around, they’re stuck to the surface, weighted down.

I watched them for awhile, waiting for someone.
