Mazeroski in Moonlight After the Gala

You now how I like to photograph the Bill Mazeroski statue down by PNC Park and the Allegheny River. The statue captures the moment he ran into home plate , winning the 1960 World Series for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

My dad was at that game.

Tonight the moon was out. Steve and I were on our way home from the National Kidney Gala at Heinz Field.  BTW the photo I donated went for a nice amount in the Silent Auction so that felt satisfying. Such a good organization. 80% of donations goes directly to the patients and their needs.The number of people with kidney disease is staggering. Attendees were incredibly generous especially when in a 10 minutes blitz they raised about $25,000.

 Steve took this picture of me with Mill Firelight on the Mon. 

 

Union Station Arch Columbus Ohio

Maura’s Elementary  School Choir sang before the hockey game tonight.  After the Hockey game we came outside to this night time scene.  The Historic Landmark.

Union Station Arch, Arena District Columbus Ohio.

“The lone remnant of the once grand entrance arcade of Columbus Union Station, this relocated arch was designed by Daniel Burnham and now serves as a focal point of the Arena District. Built in 1897” 

Taillights, Headlights and Raindrops Catch Light

I got to be the passenger Wednesday night.

So many lights to capture in the night.

The bright light top left is on the new TRYP Hotel, (perhaps from their rooftop restaurant I read about? )

Just left the 40th Street Bridge in Lawrenceville

Becky B inspired the #JanuaryLight challenge

Becky B. host of the #JanuaryLight challenge stopped by and left some good words.

Watch for a mention in her upcoming Second Gallery 😀

St. Stanislaus Churchlight At Night

We were coming home from the Masters of Visual Arts Show at the Heinz History Center. It was dark but the church in the Strip District was glowing from inside. St. Stanislaus Church was built in 1891      For Becky B’s  #Januarylight challenge

St.Stanislaus Pittsburgh PA

The above photo a square or close to it. The following photo shows the stained glass window design and I couldn’t bear to crop the photo.


Ballparklights Pittsburgh PNC Park

I reread the rules of the #JanuaryLight challenge and the title is to end in the word light. Hence the title Ballparklights.  I don’t think/know it’s in any dictionary, connected, but I’m trying to adhere to the guidelines.

The actual ballparklights are not illuminated

Becky B’s Square Light Challenge continues to inspire January’s photographs.

A bit of fog added to the mood on the swollen river, seeping over the wall.

Christmas Lights, Candlelight, and Moonlight

Taking up Becky’s January Square Challenge of LIGHT. 

Not my house, but it is so inviting and the candles are flickering along the sidewalk.

And yes, that is the moon up at the top of the photo.

The temperature dropped to 32 and the lights shine in the darkness, making winter beautiful.

Becky says (via Cee’s Photography post of a lighthouse at Twilight)

I’m proposing our January squares are filled with words ending in light that means one or more of the following; sunlight, floodlights, firelight, skylights, candlelight, sidelights, starlight, footlights, moonlight, streetlights, torchlight, taillights, gaslight, headlights, or, as I have today, twilight – whether that be the astronomical, nautical or civil twilight. And feel free to find your own _____light, there are more than 50 words which end in light!
