Tugboat and Barges on the Monongahela

Saturday afternoon, after the poetry reading at the Pump House, I walked outside.

I saw the tug pushing the loaded barges up the Mon towards the Rankin Bridge.

Because the leaves are still on the trees, I had to find an open space to catch the scene before it got away. Carrie Furnace is in the background.   Shot with the iPhone5.

Homestead Smokestacks at Night

You see images of these stacks often. This one from the parking lot by the movie theatre.  All that is left of the US Steel Homestead Works- a dozen smokeless stacks.

Former steel mill site now a shopping complex, restaurants and movie theatres.
