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

Madison and 57th, Looking West

A week of bright shining stars.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination inspired me to post twice and then I received these photos in my email.

I love it when my friends, family and followers respond with a photograph.

My college friend/ artist/ photographer Joyce Grasso sent this to me.  I wrote back and she graciously consented to be guest blogger. 

Shot through a car window with a cell phone.  Last Spring my sister and I met Joyce at MOMA and toured the Cindy Sherman exhibit.

Thanks for sharing your illumination capture of the star in New York City, Joyce!

    Love the photo by Joyce, my friend and former neighbor. She’s the best! Love her people shots too. She finds all the characters – or maybe they find her, not sure!
