August 28, 2015. A beautiful August evening for a happy wedding celebration. Here’s the first peek at some highlights of the photographs from the wedding. Congratulations to Kevin and Kat!
Here are the bride Kathleen (Kat) and Kevin. He is watching her come down the aisle of the top deck of the Three Rivers Queen (Gateway Clipper Line)

Their two dogs are important to them although they didn’t attend the wedding they were featured in the cake topper silhouette.
Working together to get the wedding cake’s first piece out and onto a plate. It’s more difficult than it looks!

A full moon over the city of Pittsburgh
Left the Rehearsal Dinner at Penn Brewery to go across the street to my car. This is what I saw.
The scene was elusive in camera, not wanting to focus, but a spectacular view. I really enjoy night photography and need to make a point to get out more at night.

When you drive past and the scene sticks in your mind –
you make a turn at the light and swing into the gas station to drive back and photograph –
A beautiful summer day for a joyous wedding.
Congratulations to Jeremy and Melissa.

After breakfast with my friend Donna, we saw this pink chair in the front garden.
I shot it through the windshield. We were stopped at the end of the alley where it was time to turn into the street.
The wing chair didn’t look as if it was put out for the trash?
A bit of reflection in the street puddle.
‘Twas The Night Before Picklesburgh – 35 Foot Pickle Balloon Tethered to Ninth Street Bridge- Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is Picklesburgh this weekend. It starts Friday.
There will be a pickle juice drinking contest. Mmmmm. Maybe I can get down there and photograph some of the festivities. Heinz Pickles production
When I saw Picklesburgh listed in the news on the computer tonight, I got in the car (about 10:15) drove downtown and put the flashers on. You couldn’t go on the main part of the bridge itself said the nice security man but I walked along the walkway and took a few photos of the giant pickle balloon at night. I just thought there it would be some “fresh content” and a new topic. I hear there will be pickle cookies to eat. All kinds of pickly treat to sample.
We can discuss dill, spears, sandwich slices, chips, bread and butter or sweet pickles another time.
I like pickle relish in tuna salad. Dill spears.
One summer I made pickles when I visited my brother David in Okanogan WA and they were delicious.
My grandmother’s handwritten pickle recipe is in a wooden box in my kitchen.
Two days of Picklesburgh and celebrating all things pickled.
The city at night is always magical to me.

Saw these two photos on the desktop and they seemed similar in shape
But here’s what happens with the Pittsburgh Plunge at Kennywood
A lot of excitement in the air, in addition to the tossed hats.
I was thinking it was my last official photography gig for the school as I retire this week but then I remembered that Monday night is COMMUNITY DAY. One more official gig.
