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.

But the kids loved everything in the Children’s Museum on the North Side.
They said “Just like Lala’s porch swing” (at the entrance)
Jack and Maura rushing to get inside. We lucked out – THROWBACK THURSDAY the kids were 1/2 price admission.
Silk screening first so everything had a chance to dry in the studio before we took it home
Maura loved putting her artwork into the dryer and watching it come out the other end on the conveyor belt.
Climbing in the Ant Farm. They never tired of climbing up and down.
You can watch Mr Rogers explain how his mother shows love here
His sneakers were in the next exhibit area- ATTIC
Maura tried her hand at STOP animation video production in MAKESHOP®
Cool puppets display in the ATTIC
But here is my favorite Daniel Striped Tiger
Videoing the emotion on the screen This is SCARED in the XOXO exhibit. All you need is love………..
A really great installation art piece of the spinning barrels by Will Schlough in the GARAGE
Jack cranked the parachute up to the ceiling but it got trapped.
You can see the Old Post Office Rotunda from the outside
At the outdoor lemonade stand, Jack promised to buy me a new car on his promise of a good deed tag. No money for the lemonade. I promised to be a patient grandmother and tweeted it with a hashtag.
Jack got on the KDKA news clip
Waiting for the mist to come in Buhl Community Park- Cloud Arbor by Ned Kahn click here to see an excellent photo
The original Carnegie Free Library on the North Side (Allegheny). Walked by on the way to the car. It was a great day.
Thanks to my friend V for suggesting I take the kids. A very good idea.
Thought this a good story for the Split-Second Weekly Photo Challenge although I am in a gray area as it is to be a
single frame telling a story.
Uh-oh. If the creator (Shane Francescut, Toronto Street Photographer and Blogger) of the challenge is grading the entries, mine will not meet the objective.
But how often are you in the company of unicyclists?
I was down at PNC Park photographing the prom goers and two nice guys drove by on unicycles. They cycled past me, and as I was photographing them from behind, the guy in the yellow shirt gave the thumbs up and looked back at me and unintentionally gave me what looked to be an “uncomfortable shot” when he lost his balance momentarily.
They stopped and talked with me for a bit and I asked them stupid questions about their wheels. Steve and Daniel. Thank you! And I bet I am not the first person to ask them goofy questions-
These were SERIOUS unicycles. Unicyclists are well balanced they said. I asked if I could blog them and they agreed. Steve on the left. Daniel on the right Ouch Thumbs up sign, all is well. Getting back on the unicycle. Check out that tread. I was just wondering how different people get involved in different activities. I am sure I would not even be able to get on one and make it go.
