City Pumpkins and Bicycles

 

Lots of people head to the farm stand or the farmer’s market or even the Giant Eagle to get a pumpkin.

A bit rainy today but what a colorful surprise to see pumpkins on display on Carson Street in the South Side. School had a day off for the observance of Yom Kippur so I made good use of a midweek vacation day.   I was on my way to see my printer, Tom, so couldn’t stop but swung around and parked briefly, got out and crossed the street.  The bus with the bicycle was a bonus in one of the shots.  I liked the double yellow lines and the bumper converging and the repeat of the bicycle on the bus AND in front of the Hardware Store.  Next time I am going in the hardware store but I had a lot of errands to run so didn’t make time today.  Next time!

 


Snippet of City Skyline

A rainy day.  Columbus Ohio.   Shot through glass,  across the Scioto river from COSI (Center of Science and Industry) A tad underexposed for the trees looking at it now.

The Art Deco building on the left in LeVeque Tower, a half foot taller than Washington Monument. Detail of tower below.

A different city skyline from my usual Pittsburgh photographs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Umbrella Woman in Oakland

Thursday night. Just finished shooting a poet for her chapbook photo at Frick Fine Arts.  Started to rain. Stabilize camera on a sycamore tree. Experiment with wet pavement/light reflections. Cable remote so no camera shake. Cathedral of Learning behind. Enter stage left- Woman in a raspberry sherbet coat, a huge black umbrella strolls into line of vision.

The Umbrella of Oakland, Pittsburgh

As if casting sent her, she entered the scene on cue.
