I’ve been taking my cars to Bastone Auto for 25 years. You want to go to an auto place you trust! Being located in a former church seems a nice touch.
Pennsylvania car inspection was due and the temporary registration I’d gotten online was about to expire Dec 2nd.
My goal’s to get a photo of the Bastone brothers in front of their place. I thought it would be a great addition to People at Work- Primarily Pittsburgh (show at Panza Gallery. July 2018)
As I was asking Bob about getting Jim and Frank to agree I said “here I’ll take a quick sample on the phone to remind you to ask them”
Bob is also an expert Amateur/Ham Radio operator (licensed call sign is WC3O) and here’s an article
If you need a speaker for your organization’s event, he’ll expound on all aspects of automotive service, repair and maintenance in his “I Hate Cars” tour. His flyer says “hear the straight scoop from an ASE certified Master Mechanic with a lifetime of experience in the automotive repair and maintenance field”
Bob has a great sense of humor, too.
Thanks for letting me take your photo, Bob.
Please ask your brothers to make a time and I’ll be over with my real camera.
Oh and my car is happy, too.
Had to get that cell phone to my eye as quickly as I could to capture this composition. My son had called the kids to help me load up the car as I prepared to leave Columbus for Pittsburgh. Henry is tagging along.
They were all (including Henry) going on their own trip, a couple of hours away, to select the Airedale puppy they’ll pick up Labor Day Weekend.

Lots of shade in both photos
from last Summer- you’re coming out of the ground and the subway car moves fast, shot through the hazy glass.
My sister and I were headed to Coney Island. Looks almost like a black and white photo but it’s color.
Driving down the Parkway West as they call it (Route 376) the construction area provided lots of traffic.
Cars with brakes and I was able to photograph a scene I’ve just admired from the driver’s seat.
Train cars on the tracks were the added bonus.
My continued car wash/rainy day studies, views through a wet windshield.
First the rotated version.
Looks like the beach instead of the Pittsburgh Greenway Parking Lot.
and the original – with a bit of a blur on the PA license plate so no one is identifled
At least I think it’s Ken. Without clothes. Not sure of the message or meaning.
I’ve see plenty of stuffed plush on garbage truck fronts, especially in New York City.
Maybe I should rethink this post and title it Wordless Wednesday.
I love how some bloggers are so consistent- Six Word Saturday, Silent Sunday, Wordless Wednesday, TBT and the dependable Weekly Photo Challenge on Friday and so on.
But sometimes when I’m stopped at a red light I see something I can photograph in a blink. No rhyme or reason. It is just there.
