Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Michelle W. challenged the WordPress Community this week with the theme DREAMY-

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

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.

Nightime.

Little Italy Days Nighttime Collage

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.

Full Moon, Blimp and a Night Game at PNC Park

It was the Sunday night I returned from Columbus OH.

Mother’s Day evening.

The blue night sky asks to be photographed.

After Midnight at the Andy Warhol Museum 20 Year Gala

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.

Everyone abuzz

 

Mirror Ball

A mirror ball whirling and reflecting light sets a mood. The mirror ball upstairs brings you back to the time of the Velvet Underground

DJs

Andrew Andrew live and work “as a joint persona”  dressing alike is just one aspect of this DJ duo.

Cole Haan Shoes

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”

Billy Name

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.

Kissing good bye

Headed home, the streets cordoned off.  We had a fun time.


Night City from the North Shore

From the archives-

The sky color grabbed my eye. The painterly quality of the Allegheny River.  Lights reflected are a favorite of mine.

You can’t have Pittsburgh city shots without plenty of bridges.

And lit at night?  Always satisfying to find the skyline in different moods from different vantage points.

While seeking photographs of my grandson Michael (his sister Anna is going to create a story board)  for his First Holy Communion Party on Saturday, I found these two Pittsburgh night photos.

If you’ve been a blog follower for a time you may have seen these two photos  from October 2011

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
