After the birthday party (grown up), the nextdoor neighbor kids were playing in the puddles.
There’d been a downpour.
Kids love puddles. They are like magnets to them.

Landscape is the weekly photo challenge, “typically displayed in a horizontal orientation” Cheri Lucas Rowlands
You can see I shot this landscape in a vertical orientation as well.
(August 2006 when visiting my brother in Washington)
Screen shots from online storage are not the best resolution. Have to dig out an external hard drive to hunt for 2006 landscapes original files from Washington trip.
and another favorite landscape is a cityscape of Pittsburgh at Night
Duquesne Incline at Night
It was a beautiful shot. I just couldn’t capture it adequately through the glass.
Everyone going to get a treat.
They really go all out. Dry ice machine. Strobe lights. Music and scary sounds. There are friends and neighbors dressed up amidst the mannequins. Some of the children stay on the sidewalk and watch and don’t go near the entrance.
Lucky us! Happy Twelfth Birthday Anna Catherine!
One October morning before dawn, you made me and Marlene happy grandmothers.
Loved by your family and friends, your loving heart and kind spirit come out in your eyes.
Twelve years flew by! Love you lots, Anna. Happy Birthday. FF Ruthie

In response to Michelle W. Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Grid.”
shot with iPhone this evening specifically for the challenge.
Left the Rehearsal Dinner at Penn Brewery to go across the street to my car. This is what I saw.
The scene was elusive in camera, not wanting to focus, but a spectacular view. I really enjoy night photography and need to make a point to get out more at night.

‘Twas The Night Before Picklesburgh – 35 Foot Pickle Balloon Tethered to Ninth Street Bridge- Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is Picklesburgh this weekend. It starts Friday.
There will be a pickle juice drinking contest. Mmmmm. Maybe I can get down there and photograph some of the festivities. Heinz Pickles production
When I saw Picklesburgh listed in the news on the computer tonight, I got in the car (about 10:15) drove downtown and put the flashers on. You couldn’t go on the main part of the bridge itself said the nice security man but I walked along the walkway and took a few photos of the giant pickle balloon at night. I just thought there it would be some “fresh content” and a new topic. I hear there will be pickle cookies to eat. All kinds of pickly treat to sample.
We can discuss dill, spears, sandwich slices, chips, bread and butter or sweet pickles another time.
I like pickle relish in tuna salad. Dill spears.
One summer I made pickles when I visited my brother David in Okanogan WA and they were delicious.
My grandmother’s handwritten pickle recipe is in a wooden box in my kitchen.
Two days of Picklesburgh and celebrating all things pickled.
The city at night is always magical to me.
