Yikes- You’ve Got to Pull Over, Get Out of Your Car and Shoot It! In the distance you can see the Cathedral of Learning at Pitt. The sparkly Christmas Tree caught my eye . St Patricks’s preparation? And as I returned to my car, I saw the sidewalk/stairs in the shade. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSkypePinterestTumblrWhatsAppLike this:Like Loading...

secret urban sculptor? nice find!
Ahhh… I’ll lift a pint to that!
Whoever thought to put up that tree is deserving of some sort of civic award. Just think of all the smiles it’s generated since it was put there.
Stunning photo’s Ruth! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Oh how well I know this feeling. Stopping has its rewards, when you are able to capture these amazing photos.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I think it adds a bit of joy.
I wonder what year its from. do you know any anthropologists?
First photo: 6 foot tree! Second: maybe not 🙂 ….. Third: small adorable tree from Xmas to St Pat’s!
Love the color of the fence it’s on, too!
Driving and photographing, not an easy thing to do. Giving oneself permission to stop and make photographs can be a struggle. During the run up to the Montreal Olympics Henri Cartier-Bresson was asked to photograph the city for an exhibition to run during the games. His solution was to hire a car and driver to take him around the city. He would jump out at moments notice and make a photograph.
Dear Ruth, you are so nice Thank you for visiting my blog. I have just visited your other website, what a beautiful photographer you are. Especially I loved your animals and kids photographs. Your photography made me excited, how beautiful to see the world from a beautiful eye of camera. Thank you, with my love, nia

Oh my, thank you for the nomination for the Versatile BLogger Award.
So much blog love, we need umbrellas!
I take pictures out of the car window, but the reflection screws them up. My husband would never pull over for me to take a picture and he is the one who is always driving. If I am driving, I will pull over, but that is rare.
Nice! You’re right about how when you come across these types of unusual finds, you just have to stop and get a picture 🙂
Somehow that little tree looks right at home there!
This SO reminds me of when my parents lived in Pittsburg. Fun memories!
