Urban Madonna

This urban madonna is in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. I was dropping off a People at Work Show invitation to one of the men whose portrait will be exhibited. I had to park on a side street as there was a huge Road Closed sign on Butler Street. I parked, crossed  the street and saw the white angels and Mary statue right in front of me. This city yard so tidy and green with lots of blessings from all the holy statues, indoors and out.

Wings of Desire in Berlin

Tonight I saw this ad for the amazing 1987 film DER HIMMEL UBER BERLIN /(Wings of Desire) directed by Wim Wenders. Showing now in Berlin at Kino in der Kulturbrauerei

Steve and I watched this on a VHS tape from the Homewood Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh, due to my sister’s recommendation.

Light and Landscape Show Opening in the Cultural District

Photographer Joey Kennedy‘s solo show, presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, opened tonight at 709 Penn Avenue, directly across from the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts.

You may be familiar with Joey’s elegant wedding photography.

I met him at Silver Eye Center for Photography a few years ago when we were in a Self-Portrait show.  He has always been generous in answering photography questions.

Tonight Steve and I went to the wonderful and well attended opening and bought a print.  The prices on his prints and stretched canvas photos were affordable!  Familiar skylines and bridges in soft fog, Allegheny Cemetery scenes, trees and scupltured angels, the incline- just as the show is titled-  Light and Landscape

 Followers who viewed his images made the selections for the exhibition AND the size of the printed photo was determined by which on got the most “likes”.

“Kennedy invites the public to participate in the exhibition’s image selection by visiting his Instagram account, instagram.com/joeykennedyphoto. Each image included in the exhibition is tagged #lightandlandscape.”

The good news is that the show is up until April 12th.
