Where’s the step?

You’re looking to put your foot on the first step, to walk down unfamiliar stairs- suddenly you see lines and shadows and stop to take a quick photo of the intersecting shadows and edges.

Made it to the bottom in one piece but you can see the distraction of designs.

Chair Pad Adhesive Stuck on Wooden Seat

It’s better than it was.

The cushion’s no slip grip rubber came off and was glued to the wooden seat.

This is a chair we got about eight years ago in an antique store in Columbus. I brought it back to Pittsburgh and it’s looking much better now.

Not finished yet. 

I used to watch the curtain blow in the wind

I used to watch the curtain blow in the wind. Someone left that top right window open.

For years.

Last week I photographed the window with the moving curtain, wishing I’d had time to video it. Red lights don’t last long enough.

Then last night, the window is gone. Steve was driving. I photographed the missing window with the eerie curtain. And I photographed it again tonight as I was driving over the RD Fleming Bridge again and got a quick shot. Just like that, it’s demolished.

Eighty Years Ago

 

This morning, when I heard today’s date, I realized it was on this day, eighty years ago, that my parents married. (Well I had a bit of help as my friend counted the decades by tens.)Although they passed away in 2000 and 2002 I was thinking about their wedding day all those years ago.
