New York City Rooftops- 2 views by day and by night

How does light affect an image?

Time of day. Time of year. Direction. Intensity. Source. Pollution. Weather conditions.

Thinking about the quality of light.

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.
