Penguin Fans Watch Stanley Cup Playoffs on Giant TV

The roads blocked off, I didn’t want to get out and walk around. Steve drove us down after dinner at Grant Ave Bar in Millvale.  We watched it on the TV in the bar as we ate.  The mood was festive. Penguins beat the Canadiens 6-3 Just wanted to check out the scene.

Giant TV downtown at Mellon Arena. People actually have a plaid couch. Streets closed.
Night starting to fall. Shot out of Steve's window from the passenger seat while at a red light.

No More Beer Here!

Lawrenceville’s Historic (1861) Iron City Brewing now closed (click underlined name for links) According to the article the plan is shops, condos, a garage in the former stables. Beer production has moved to Latrobe. Stopped at a red light and a line of cars.  Textures from the cobblestones & metal bridge, black paint peeling. Stone wall and a sign. Framed by the car window.  Traffic  behind me in the mirror. Afternoon light on metal and stone.

Iron City Brewing left the city for Latrobe. They've been closing schools for years but the brewery??
Cobblestone, stone wall, rusting metal trestle-textures everywhere.

Watch Your Lettuce!

Steve and I picked up Dorothy to go to her daughter’s for dinner. As she got in the car, the rabbit hopped across her front lawn to her tulips. She’s planted lettuce in the back garden.  It was late in the day, the light coming from the side. When I see a rabbit I think of Watership Down(click link for more info).  I liked the book but not the movie.

Rabbit in the front yard by the tulips.
Looks like a postcard for Spring!

On the way to Munhall

There is a gas station at the corner, just before you drive down the hill and over the Homestead HighLevel Bridge.  I photographed it at night while sitting at the red light. Steve was driving.  Remember when they were called filling station? In Jersey they still pump your gas.

I usually don't pull into a gas station at night but like to think about them.
