Parallel Parking

This morning when I went to the library and parked, this structure was in the space in front of me.

It was up on a trailer but as I pulled alongside, to angle in reverse and parallel park,  it just felt odd.

A PortaPotty instead of another car.

Pittsburgh Signature Sandwich

There aren’t many places open on Sunday night, late. You’re headed home and stop in to get their #2 Best Seller -To Go. Vinegary Coleslaw and Fries right in between the thick slices of Italian bread.

Primanti Bros. In The Strip District

I took a few pictures while Steve was inside getting the sandwich.  We split one. It’s sufficient.

While Stopped on West End Bridge

There’s a stop light at the end of the bridge. When it was red, this was my vantage point of the city. Then I was joined by the silver car in the left lane.

It’s Spring Break at Grandma’s House for three of the grandkids.

I am fortunate to live in a city with so much to offer.

I’ve photographed this tree before. I always like how the snow defines the branches.

Pittsburgh Light Up Night 2007

I was looking for a Throwback Thursday photo and found this black and white shot of the city at night. Light Up Night is in November, the Friday before Thanksgiving and you can see the effort to light up the city with every available watt. I’m pretty sure I could take a better image now so will try to retake this coming November 2019.

Destination Moon,Driving a Cab in “Havana” and Dinosaurs

It’s been a lot of activity this weekend.

Charlie enjoyed seeing the Destination Moon exhibit at the Heinz History Center. His second visit.

We went home for lunch and later in the afternoon we went to Phipps Conservatory where he drove a cab in Cuba. He told us to not stand in front of the car while he’s driving.

Sunday it was dinosaurs at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
