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.
Dear Blog Followers/Readers
Thanks to all who have responded on the positioning of the photos when they view the blog. It has been beyond annoying and frustrating, especially for those who get the photos sideways.
Today I spent time rotating and saving and resizing the photos which were shot vertically. If they are on their side, I hope you will inform me right away so I can go back to the drawing board. When I look at them they look correct but not for all receiving them.
I heard from a woman I photographed last week about the auto rotation of photos on various programs. Here is the link to that information
I knew nothing about Exif Data
Still working on the solution to proper orientation of photos no matter who views it on ALL devices.
Now back to our regularly scheduled blog post of the day-
Underground Parking Garages Make One Wary. Six word Saturday.
Too many movies spark one’s imagination. Especially at night.
Shot horizontally Friday night under the Giant Eagle Marketplace in Shadyside.
If it’s standing on end, do let me know.
Granddaughter Maura (just turned ten) texted me a night photo of a Christmas house. For the blog!
Last night, after Steve and I grabbed a bite, we drove through a neighborhood in search of a few more photos to add to Maura’s.
It’s dark so early now as we approach that shortest day of light.
Here’s the house in Columbus Ohio that Maura sent.
Thanks for the good idea, Maura. What a lot of colorful decorations!
Below are a few Pittsburgh houses, mostly taken from the car except for the snowy animals. I had to get out.
Hungarian Nut Roll. A Pittsburgh Christmas tradition.
Post from five years ago 2013
Today Jaclyn and her sister Shannon baked nut rolls together, carrying on family tradition.
Their mother, Theresa, passed last February. (2013) This post is to remember Theresa, those who knew and loved her and to send hugs to Jaclyn and Shannon as they are missing their mom, especially at Christmas time.
Theresa was one of the four sisters in this slideshow (baking the pizelles) showing the three sisters making nutroll in Pittsburgh- Linda, Georgeann and Theresa, while the fourth sister Marlene communicated via SKYPE in Virginia.
You might remember the previous post of the 15 greased nut roll pans where the retro recipe card is photographed in case you want to make them.
Marlene and I share grandchildren and her daughter Erika is married to my son Mark.
One of my favorite photos from long ago, taken by unknown photographer. Theresa, their mother Marion, Bride Linda, Marlene and Georgeann
Just a few little things. Making the season bright. Getting in the Spirit and counteracting the early darkness with festive lights and decorations.
How about the Santa on the lighted canopy over the front steps? Thank goodness I had a red light at the Edgetown intersection.
Pittsburgh Northside Rooftops on Friday Morning-
my six word Saturday.
This evening Steve and I went to the Holiday Dinner and the lights display Let it Glow at the Phipps Conservatory in Schenley Park. The food was good and there were flickering candles in glass lanterns lighting the curvy paths throughout the Conservatory. The winter lights in the darkness were festive and fun to see.
Counteracting the snowy, gray chill and early darkness with candles and friends invited to share supper.
