"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

On the Steps Ten Years Later

When my family left my house to return to their home in Ohio, they made a stop before they left the city.

Here’s what I received on my phone.

The four children and Murphy seated on the steps of Immaculate Heart of Mary in Polish Hill.


Anna (8+) photographed her parents on the steps. She has wanted to be guest blogger for a time.

And here is the whole family sitting on the steps of the church where they were married a decade ago.


At their reception I photographed Mark and Erika dancing at The Lamont- with FILM – ten years ago.
Now all I shoot is digital. I bought my first digital camera just before Anna was born- 10-10-2003.

What a hot day it was- August 17, 2002!
Happy tenth anniversary!
