The Direction of Light

The direction of available light affects the image significantly-

Light in the Darkness

Or Silent Sunday.

This series shot Friday night in three Pittsburgh neighborhoods.  It was really dark outside. Steve was given a gift card for dinner at the Pleasure Bar so we drove over to Bloomfield.  Here are some of the lights in the darkness.

Dinner Out Coincides with Millvale Days Once Again

It was Thursday night.  Steve and I met our friend V at Grant Avenue Bar in Millvale for a casual dinner and saw the road was blocked off and a banner overhead announced MILLVALE DAYS 2015. We were there!

This exact experience has happened to me and Steve before, three years ago (see post). But there wasn’t any wrestling going on this evening.

After dinner we walked down Grant Avenue, listened to a couple of live bands, checked out the vintage cars and ate a piece of Yetter’s chocolate.  Unexpected fun.  Of course, I’d left my camera at home!

And there’s a to-go container of tapioca in the fridge downstairs. Looking forward to breakfast.

Outdoor Inflatable Yard Decor or Illuminated Plastic Blow Molds?

SO when did the inflatables show up on the lawns of America? During the day they lie flat.  At night they whir and are filled with air, move a bit in the wind.

The first one found while pulled over to a curb on the North Side, checking directions on the travel app.

Shot with the cell phone from a car window.

Little Italy Days Nighttime Collage

Steve and I went over to Bloomfield Saturday night to see what was happening at Little Italy Days.  We saw fire consumption as we did in June by @PghFireGirl

The recycled glass Aurora Lamps were eye-catching.  And there were a ton of food vendors and food trucks.

We met Lenny and James and admired the BBQ trophies.  James gave us a sample to take home and will be competing down at Heinz Field next week.  The Wool Sports Logo Banners would look great at school in the counselor’s office.
