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.
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.
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.

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.
