Friday Night on the North Side

Friday after he got home from work, Steve asked me to go to the Andy Warhol Museum, use our museum memberships.  We always say we are going to go to one of the museums every month and although I went with the grandkids to the Carnegie Science Center twice recently and the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, he and I have not kept up with our plan.  Four museums in one membership is a great deal but you have to utilize it!    Tonight we were remembering going the night the Warhol  opened in 1994. We had a beer and sat on the couch, a nice man offered to take our photo as he saw me struggle with a selfie attempt. We took a walk to the river after our visit.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

Friday afternoon at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Hall of Architecture.

With three of the grandchildren, one of them is always “between”.

This week’s challenge is hosted by the Danielle Hark founder of a blog I follow- 

“Danielle is a photographer, writer, life coach, and the founder of the online gallery and nonprofit Broken Light Collective, which empowers people affected by mental illness using photography.”

The Carnegie Museum Fountains in Winter

Shooting a color photo that looks black and white is fun.  These pods looked chilly and the sounds of the water splashing gave a shiver right under my wool coat and scarf.

Ever watch kids play in fountains
in the summer months?
Not the day I shot this photograph/
and I doubt kids play in these
or if they do, I’m sure not for long.
Vigilant museum guards would
come out and put a halt to any splashing
