Bridge is the Weekly Photo Challenge.
I think I have enough bridge photographs to last all week. You’ve seen them before if you follow the blog.
In fact, I might get out and shoot some more bridges not part of my collection-yet.

“The metal bike racks were designed by Millvale-based graphic designer Tom Walker and built by Geoff Blanchard of Red Star Ironworks, also in the borough. The circular design shows open books of shrinking size nested inside each other.”
There are two machines. The one on the right took Euros but was unlit.
A choir was singing O Holy Night and that’s the soloist image on the flat screen.

Happy Birthday dear friend, from Magnolia Bakery window on Bleecker Street.
People at work. What an amazing place. A field trip for photo class Wednesday night. Craig and Kurt were most hospitable. And you never saw so many bicycles in your life. Steamers for handlebars, baskets, reflectors, headlamps, tires, gears, seats. You name it. Anything and EVERYTHING for a bicycle. Whatever you want? It is there! Craig has been collecting bikes for 30 years and just put this place together in the last three months. WOW is all we could say. Holy Bikes! The four bikes on the wall are Bowden Spacelander bikes made of fiberglass designed in 1948. There are very few in the world and here were FOUR together !!!
Along the Allegheny River, across from downtown. Riverfront Park. I was on a field trip with a photography class I signed up for through Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. Next week we’re going to a greenhouse to photograph orchids. The other class members are people I have taken classes with before so that is fun! Wednesday night was Light Up the Night Walk for Lymphoma and Leukemia. One walker said they raised $700,000 dollars if I heard him correctly. The walkers had red balloons with flashing lights inside which I tired to photograph but didn’t really work out. I’ve shot this skyline angle before. But then the moment happens and the bicyclist drives by into the frame and because the shutter was open for 30 seconds you can see the trail of light. I think it adds interest to the scene. There were lots of people readying the area for the Tom Cruise movie they are shooting, putting tape down on the cement walk to mark the actor’s places. Turning an office building into a hotel. There were benches and additions to the walk- a kiosk and a rental shed.
From the archives. This photo won the Downtown Living Exposed Exhibition a few falls ago, 2008. Pre blog. Golden Triangle Bike Rental now has two locations I see from their webpage and a beautiful gallery of Bike Pittsburgh photographs. Tom the owner got on the bicycle as I was leaving and as I looked out the parking garage opening, there was the shadow and cool angle and serendipitious shot.
