Scottsdale, Arizona. My midwinter break. Last Thursday night’s Artwalk.
Delicious chocolate brownies and wine served in the back amidst vibrant artwork.
The weekly photo challenge is vibrant.

A vibrant scene, Main Street, Scottsdale Arizona.
I read the fine print and am not allowed to post my photos of artist Bruce Munro’s vibrant Water-Towers, at the Desert Botanical Garden but if you click on this link you can see his perfect photo of his light installation.
Trio. You know I had to put the obvious first. The literal.
Dwayne Dolphin on bass at the Trimont for the Touchstone Fundraiser. I’ll have to get the names of the other musicians.

Lots of good.things come in threes. There might have to be a second gallery of Trio this week.

Remembering when we went to the Richie Havens concerts together and you met him in the hallway at the Carnegie Lecture Hall?
It was Thursday night. Steve and I met our friend V at Grant Avenue Bar in Millvale for a casual dinner and saw the road was blocked off and a banner overhead announced MILLVALE DAYS 2015. We were there!
This exact experience has happened to me and Steve before, three years ago (see post). But there wasn’t any wrestling going on this evening.
After dinner we walked down Grant Avenue, listened to a couple of live bands, checked out the vintage cars and ate a piece of Yetter’s chocolate. Unexpected fun. Of course, I’d left my camera at home!
And there’s a to-go container of tapioca in the fridge downstairs. Looking forward to breakfast.
Inspiration. Show what inspires you.
Vivaldi, Van Gogh, a bookcase full of poetry and another full of cookbooks.
There are those family and friends who love and encourage me. The new baby.
But I needed a single photo tonight. Now! A single image as a response to Krista’s WPC.
I rummaged through archives. There were no trumpet concertos calling to me.
When I went to the fridge for some cold water there it was! I found the new gold foil package of Irish butter, purchased earlier today and sitting on the shelf calling to me. I felt inspired.
I added the eggs in the Pyrex bowl and the little bottle of vanilla extract my friend J sent at Christmas.
The box of raspberries.
I’m out of lemons but wish I had one to add. A slice of toast.
iPhone 6 shot in my dark kitchen with the side light by the sink illuminating the Irish butter still life, not the overhead lamp- too much glare.

Ben Huberman’s challenge of the week. He says, “Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together.”
And what classic photo from my Pittsburgh archives could I choose, except where the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River converge to create the great Ohio River? Three Rivers!
Anna and Lala converge at james’ parents’ farm
Ocean and sand converge at sunrise. St. George Island, Florida
Double Yellow Lines converge at Little Italy Days in Bloomfield.
Railroad tracks appear to converge even though we know they are parallel. Ohio.
Perhaps this one is for MERGE where the traffic attempts to converge
