On the Way to Millvale PA
Peruvian Folk Art on Walnut Street
These bright colors caught my eye as I walked by the storefront of La Feria on Walnut Street.
It’s a restaurant too.
Shot horizontally. Fingers crossed it doesn’t somersault.

Magi With Gift on Vending Machine and the Ice Cream Sandwich Vacuum
What I found after lunch at the inservice today at Pittsburgh Filmmakers-
Sure this King has been shot a thousand times but it was my first sighting and he made me laugh out loud when I looked up and saw him.
I did attempt to purchase an ice cream sandwich ( I know, I know….) from the frozen vending machine and the lid of the freezer compartment opened and the vacuum hose was at the ready to suck up a sandwich but the machine was empty and rejected my dollar bill. Waaaaaaaaah!
The man at the equipment desk with the retro Pirates hat came to assist and told me that sometimes, if you are lucky, the ice cream sandwiches get stuck together and he has actually seen as many as FIVE get sucked up and dispensed. Several colleagues waited with me, hopefully. EMPTY!
And here is the shot I got when I left my driveway on the second day of back to the school year. Just had the iPhone camera once again.
The Music of Michael Jackson, Tuesday Night in Town
A friend had an extra ticket to the The Music of Michael Jackson Tribute with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra who put on a stellar musical performance. People were on their feet, clapping and dancing to the familiar music as the star of the show gave it his all. It was a tribute not an impersonation pointed out the star, James Delisco. It was a fun night and an unexpected outing on a Tuesday evening. Thanks Barb and Penny.
The Heinz Hall was elegantly decorated for Christmas. Single glittery gloves were passed out and kids 13 and under got a chance to come up onstage for the last number, Thriller, and show their moves.
Photos by iPhone again.
Macy’s windows were filled with holiday displays. The giant Nativity scene and the Menorah display were by the old USSteel building, now UPMC. Preparations for the holidays are in full swing in downtown Pittsburgh.
