Wordless Wednesday


Full Moon Through NYC Window

It was a beautiful shot.  I just couldn’t capture it adequately through the glass.

Two Thirds of a Year Already

Eight months old. Seems just a blink since Charles was born, June 25th.

You’ve heard it a billion times, they grow so fast, and they do. It’s true.

Before I headed back to Pittsburgh, I wanted to photograph my grandson with the real camera and not the phone.  He’s on the move. Says “Hi, Dada”

Pittsburgh Autumn in a Bright Light

Yesterday I photographed a few scenes in the drizzly rain. I posted Pittsburgh Autumn in a Dull Light.

Today it was bright and so I returned to the same spots. You can’t see how windy it was.

Thinking about how light affects the mood, color and feel of a photograph.

Pittsburgh Autumn in a Dull Light



Diffused light.

I was down in Homestead at the Waterfront, having been up the hill in West Mifflin.

Shopped for flannel sheets.  Readying for the cold weather.

And though the day was rainy, I thought I’d shoot to include the changing leaves, give a sense of time and place.
