Self-assignment: Return to the same place and take another photograph.
Did you ever see two photographs where you are to spot the differences?
Photographed December 2010 Where the Rivers Meet (note the Christmas Tree at the Point)
Talking about weather and the impact on our lives has taken a prominent role this season.
We’ve had enough of winter here and we’re not Boston. I see their photos of piles of snow to the rooftops. Ugh.
Not sure how they can stand it. What will happen when it all melts?
Dangerous driving, slick roads, walking warily. Ice you can’t see.
Grateful for a furnace and power. Everything seems more of an effort.
After breakfast in Ohio. The hope of an imminent Spring.
Thought the tulips would help counteract the snowy landscape this morning.
A single petal fell off and froze quickly.
Here is Long Tail the feral cat in the garage. You may know the story about Ann next door who was in her nineties and passed and we caught two of the four young cats she’d collected and had them neutered and vaccinated and released. How they survive the sub zero temps is astounding. Steve feeds them and made a shelter.
As I arrived, I noticed sunlight.
It’s been pretty gray around here. Twenty four days until Spring.
Just the tips of the top of the PPG building, reminded me of a sandcastle at the beach.
And up over the hill, the rest of the skyline.
You can see the barge lane in the middle of the icy Monongahela River. Don’t let the blue sky fool you, it was really cold.
A panorama taken with the Sony Mirrorless camera. First time I used this feature.
This was actually the first shot Monday afternoon as I pulled out of the school lot.
First time the sun had shown itself in awhile.
Everyone who knows me and what’s in Millvale PA, was pretty sure I was at Jean-Marc Chatellier Bakery when they saw yesterday’s post of the snow topped mailboxes.
Not this trip- although I wish I’d thought of when I was over there.
Right after school I drove in the snow and met my wonderful printer, Tom, to pick up a print. Tom was waiting on the side of street on 31st between Liberty and Penn, right before the 31st Street bridge.
His good idea so I could get to Millvale before closing.
I was dropping off a print to be framed at my favorite framer, Mark Panza Gallery. He and his daughter Jennifer do an excellent job. I always leave there with a rejuvenation in spirit and lots of creative ideas after we talk.
Mark took this photo me with my new SONY mirrorless camera, testing it out.
I love the vintage mannequins in the background as they are waitng for pick-up to be in a movie being filmed in Millvale and Pittsburgh.
Thanks for taking this photo of me Mark.
and here is our
selfie usie taken with the tilt screen option that opens up.
I made it a tad smaller so I don’t feel so bulky when I look at it.
I cropped myself out and got a nice portrait of Mark
Steve brought in take out tonight. Fish sandwich and slaw. I reheated the sandwich in the oven. Mmmmmm.
East Liberty, Larimer Avenue.
The empty school sits behind the twin-spired church, the one that’s closed.
I saw the architecture through the snow-
from the lot where I was parking.
Photographed while at a red light on Valentine’s Day 2015.
On the steps of the City County Building.
This is a bronze sculpture of former mayor (served 1977-1988), Richard S. Caliguiri.
Here’s an article he wrote about facing his diagnosis of the fatal disease amyloidosis.
“On October 19, 1990 a statue of Richard S. Caliguiri was dedicated on the steps in front of Pittsburgh’s City-County Building. The sculpture was made by well-known sculptor Robert Berks. It stands 9 feet tall and is 3 feet wide.”
