Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

About number six on the list of definitions of the word through   – Having finished; at completion

Went to  Farm to Table Conference  (courtesy of Erin Hart, Thank You! and stay tuned for a post tomorrow highlighting the conference)

I ventured out onto the balcony to shoot the bridges, helicopters landing at Allegheny Hospital and the Allegheny River.  At the end of the balcony I found this receptacle filled with items – looked like the people were THROUGH – as in finished- the people who left their cigarettes and soft drinks and beer bottles were definitely THROUGH and they were probably not from the Raw Milk and Organic Fruits and Vegetables crowd.

Not a soul was out there lighting up. But everything seemed in a perfect place in the circle of the trash, an interesting composition.

And-

You know how I enjoy the idea of a garbageologist as a second career.  My mother always said, you can tell a lot about people by their garbage.

And when I turned to go back into the Convention Center, I looked through the window and saw these boys and two male figures, looking out through the windows to see  the Allegheny River.

The Railroad Bridge, plate glass windows, the Allegheny River and reflection. People staring through the windows.

As If “Not Littering” Were/Was(?) Enough….. Which is Correct?

Okay Grammarians. Here’s your chance. I can’t decide which is correct.

1. As if “not littering” were enough to keep Pennsylvania beautiful.

2. As if “not littering” was enough to keep Pennsylvania beautiful.

The more I read them the more I think I should go with- #3 choice-

Is just “not littering” sufficient?

or

“Not littering” isn’t the only thing necessary………

No way to dial a #1-800-Grammar line and find out which is correct.

It’s after eleven PM. The English teachers, working or retired, I know are fast asleep.

Surely someone can help me out with the proper wording of the title.

Maybe it will occur to me in the middle of the night.

Or just check out the sign and don’t worry about my inability to decide.

Shot near Rankin Bridge on Route 837.

This sign is on the entrance to a car junkyard.
