Right from school, I drove the 200 miles to Columbus and made it in time to attend the Nutcracker with the family.
We crossed the street after the performance and Maura and her other grandmother and I sat on a bench while the rest of the family walked around the Statehouse, seeing the sites. We were waiting for the line to the parking lot to subside.
We asked Maura which part was her favorite. (“the kids doing the back handsprings” said Anna and Maura said “Me, too.”)
Maura’s response to the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Dance of the Flowers took place right on the sidewalk..
I was wishing I’d brought my camera but had to do with the iPhone.
Oh, did I mention that it was about 55 degrees. Felt like a Spring evening with a chill wind.
The shortest day of light in the year. No wonder everyone is wrapping tiny lights around bare branches, plugging in cords, and flipping the switch to make it bright.
Pulled over to capture the giant Santa and a car sped by
Old School Blow Molds, Illuminated
The Toy Soldier House
Friday night the Metropolitan Museum of Art is open until nine.
We saw the tree lighting and walked through some of the major exhibits to check out others.
(the Christmas tee is another post, stay tuned) The Holiday Sugar Sculpture of the Museum was fun to see.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art at Night
the line up of hot dog vendor carts was colorful in the dark
Because it was raining, I just got the fountains looking like this. Didn’t want to stand in the rain.
Information in the center of the lobby. You could smell the magnolias.
View from an upper window.
The museum in sugar outside of the cafeteria.
Credits to the pastry chef Randy Eastman and his assistants.
I try to keep up with my sister as we head for the subway. It was still raining. The magic of wet pavement.
I thought it was a real challenge. (I guess that’s the point of the challenge) Some are easier to find just the right photos in response.
One more for the Nighttime challenge.
Jack’s and Club Cafe on 12th and Carson Street on the South Side, Pittsburgh.
Club Cafe is known for the live music- Oct 2nd it’s Peter Case with The Damaged Pies
BTW Jack’s is open 7 AM – 2AM, 11AM-2AM on Sunday, 365 days year- you can shoot pool in the back and there’s a jukebox.
Photographing at night is one of my favorite things to do.
The city looks the most beautiful at night.
I scanned just a wee portion of my archives to get a representative sampling.
Nighttime- quiet, dark. Sparkly, twinkly too as I seem to shoot a lot of lights.
Anna and Maura and Henry getting ready to go to sleep.
The city lit up feels magical to me. Every November they have Light Up Night

Balloon Man at Little Italy Days in Bloomfield
The barn at Bobbijo and Tim’s wedding.
I posted this or a similar one for fire and ice. Definitely nighttime
Getting a sandwich late at night. The sandwich with the french fries and coleslaw right on it.
The Greyhound Bus station at night in Pittsburgh
Steve and I went over to Bloomfield Saturday night to see what was happening at Little Italy Days. We saw fire consumption as we did in June by @PghFireGirl
The recycled glass Aurora Lamps were eye-catching. And there were a ton of food vendors and food trucks.
We met Lenny and James and admired the BBQ trophies. James gave us a sample to take home and will be competing down at Heinz Field next week. The Wool Sports Logo Banners would look great at school in the counselor’s office.

It was the Sunday night I returned from Columbus OH.
Mother’s Day evening.
The blue night sky asks to be photographed.
I enjoy taking photos of the city at night.
There’s the blimp
From the red light at the Convention Center.Night Game at PNC Park
The $500 a plate crowd started at 6PM but after midnight it was fair game for the public. Steve and I went to the opening of the Andy Warhol Museum twenty years ago, remembered a line around the block, waiting. A bar across the street which is no longer there, where Eddie and Christine put on the finishing touches of his outfit and hair for the parade. Christine used to cut our hair in the Fulton Buiding, long before it was Heaven and now the Renaissance Hotel.
Where did twenty years go?
So we thought we’d slip down and check it out. See what the beautiful people are up to in the Burgh Saturday night.
A mirror ball whirling and reflecting light sets a mood. The mirror ball upstairs brings you back to the time of the Velvet Underground
Andrew Andrew live and work “as a joint persona” dressing alike is just one aspect of this DJ duo.
Forget it- these are sold out! Cole -Haan silver shoes sported by Benjie of Benjie’s Baubles (NYC). A gift ! Thanks for letting me shoot yourshoes! It was nice chatting as well.
Felt sad looking at the photo of Andy Warhol’s grave with the glow of an eerie lighted candle- I believe it is a “live feed”
Andy Warhol’s Gravesite in Castle Shannon.
The Silver Party Favor Tote.
Wondering how Billy Name was experiencing the gala. Lots of folks wanted a photo with him. He was the one who originated the SILVERIZING of Andy’s Factory.
Bob Colacello author of Holy Terror and everyone bidding farewell. Steve has an autographed copy already from MAry Lloyd.
