Tonight I attended the Congressional Art Awards hosted by Congressman Mike Doyle at the William Pitt Student Union, University of Pittsburgh.
One of my students had an artwork in the exhibit. Because it’s a photograph showing herself I am unable to post her piece but I am very proud of her for participating.
On the way out of the Assembly Room, I photographed the beautiful (and very large) neon art installation by artist Jane Haskell. (See plaque below)
Stephen Njoroge, a native of Kenya runner-up in 2013, won the men’s race in 2:15:19.
Female winner -Clara Santucci, 28, finished in 2 hours, 34 minutes, 6 seconds here she is approaching the twenty mile mark
The handchairs are inspiring to watch.
Not sure what number of the photographic series but Saturday morning I was in Oakland,(Pittsburgh) shopping at Top Notch Art Store for the 40% off sale on the Prismacolor Pencils-
and all of a sudden the driver of a USPS truck is waving at me.
I looked through the door to the silhouette and and recognized him.
He pulled around to the curb and it was fun! I’d never seen him at work. I learned about the
OD green boxes on the corners. Working all day Saturdays.
Thanks for letting me photograph you, Greg. You are always nice to me about my photography!
Just got back from this wild event, the 18th ART ALL NIGHT in Lawrenceville.
Saturday morning I went down and registered a photograph that is hanging there now and I’ll pick it up Sunday afternoon. This is the first year I’ve participated. What a crowd!
Here are some of the patrons waiting to get into the warehouse to see the hundreds of artworks displayed. There are artists creating “LIVE ART” that will be auctioned or sold at noon Sunday.
Thanks for allowing me to blog you and your dogs! Here are some Lawrenceville “neighbors” of the event.

I think this is the line for the Free Beer

First the rotated version.
Looks like the beach instead of the Pittsburgh Greenway Parking Lot.
and the original – with a bit of a blur on the PA license plate so no one is identifled
Frozen in the moment. Still fresh, Magic.
I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives
Looking for images that say fresh. I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.

Saturday moring around nine, I was driving through the Strip District and saw green in every direction.
Ahhh, St.Patrick’s Day Parade!
How could I have forgotten. Parked the car and got out in the rain and realized all I had was my cell phone camera.
Everyone was so nice when I asked if I could photograph them. The rain didn’t dampen their spirits.
Twenty-seventh parade !
Ladies of the AOH Auxilary Sue and Marian
Hanging up green merchandise. Love the shades.
The Parade Marshall. He thought I was lost. So nice.
This group has placed first in their category!

Made the decision to turn right at the mouth of the Liberty Tunnel, go to Mount Washington and photograph the city in fog on the way to school this morning.
I thought the above shot was best with the gift of light on the incline car, as it prepared to head down the mountain. No tripod although there was a man with one. I stabilized my camera on the iron fence.
Of course, the light changes every moment as the sunrises in the east. All shots taken with 24-70 lens on the Canon 5D Mark ii
One vertical shot. Light and dark/ Cloud and shadow.
Trying to get the best view in the frame.
Being there. looking at the city in the fog, was a magnificent experience. The limits of photography.
It felt like being in a plane but you’re standing on a concrete platform by the incline, looking at the city disappear in a foggy sea. Wasn’t it just last week I was photographing the icy river and the barge lane? Today felt like early Spring.
