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.

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.

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!
