Snowstorm Softens Skyline Edges in 2015 and in 2010

Self-assignment:  Return to the same place and take another photograph.

Did you ever see two photographs where you are to spot the differences?

Winter City

Just the tips of the top of the PPG building, reminded me of a sandcastle at the beach.

And up over the hill, the rest of the skyline.

You can see the barge lane in the middle of the icy Monongahela River. Don’t let the blue sky fool you, it was really cold.

A panorama taken with the Sony Mirrorless camera. First time I used this feature.

This was actually the first shot Monday afternoon as I pulled out of the school lot.

First time the sun had shown itself in awhile.


Snow Day Tugboat and Barges Push Through the River Ice

See the path where the tug pusning the barges has cut through the ice?

OHIO RIVER ICE

Three Rivers Stadium and the Ohio River

School got called off so I went to take some photographs on the way home.

1degree and -16 windchill.   I didn’t stay long with my cameras.

My friends Deb and Sy live downstream along the Ohio River.  They emailed me the cell phone photos they took at eye level as the tug cut through frozen Ohio River ice

Still thinking about depth.  A second gallery for the weekly challenge.  What draws your eye into the picture.

Return and photograph a scene you have shot before- a different day, different weather, different angle, different light

*Took a similar shot three years ago, almost to the day.

*Reflection on a day when the river was fairly still.  

*A shot with some leaves on the trees and a barge and tug


The city is there, I swear

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.

Outlook Drive View of the Mill on the Monongahela River

A favorite place to capture the look of yesteryear but it is tonight.  Right now. 2014 from West Mifflin across the Monongahela River.

After being with the family up on VistaView I drove down Outlook Drive. The leaves aren’t full yet and I found a good clearing between two homes.

Propped the camera up onto the passenger window ledge and tried to get a steady shot with a long shutter.

That mill is working all day and night every day and I just drive by for a glimpse a couple of times every year.

 

I have posted the mill at night a few times but I never get tired of seeing it. Here is it in the snow

And another April shot from a few years ago

Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio -Three Rivers

Threes.  Many things come in threes. It’s a strong number- a favorite number of many.

Still on the theme of three with a triptych story with the suggested 3 pictures will be coming in the near future……………

Thanks Mark for this thought on the Three Rivers even though the stadium by that name was demolished in 2001

(see implosion below)

River Ice

 

 

 

 

I like it when a color photo looks black and white. Well, gray and white.

After school I drove up to Mount Washington to see the ice on the rivers.  The Monongahela, the Allegheny and the Ohio.
