Abba Used Cars

ABBA II Used Cars in McKees Rocks Pennsylvania-  Nobody Walks? But where are the cars?  Seems a lot of people aren’t getting the ABBA connection either. So I am editing and leaving these questions for the viewer.  No one noticed the lot was empty although it was apparent to me when I took the shot and it made me laugh.

City Sidewalk Stairs

In Pittsburgh there are lots of staircases winding up hillsides and slopes.  Paper streets are defined on existing on paper but not in reality but in Pittsburgh there are streets on maps that are actually stairs. Some are incredibly steep and long.  The other day I was at another red light in McKees Rocks and saw this sidewalk/steps. The bench ad for Pierogies Plus  is true as they are delicious. A book written by an architect librarian and archivist at CMU. Author Martin Aurand‘s book  The Spectator and the Topographical City describes the formation of the topography of Pittsburgh’s hills and valleys.


Sudden Service in McKees Rocks, PA

At a red light, shot through the windshield, but isn’t this a great sign?  Sudden Service. Open for business in McKees Rocks, PA. How making the same photo black and white it can feel like I took this photograph years ago.  Try four days ago!Dry Cleaners McKees Rocks
