The Asian Lantern Festival at the Pittsburgh Zoo Now through October 30th. This is just a sneak peek. Steve and I were headed to get gas and I was able to pull over to get a quick peek through the Zoo fence.
Remember the groom bestowed upon his groomsmen the colorful light sabers at the rehearsal dinner the other night?
And you saw the beautiful wedding couple at the church and the Pittsburgh Zoo and their reception at the PPG Aquarium.
I took the flash drive with some wedding photos to them earlier today and I got to see them open this gift before they head out early in the morning for a warm beach honeymoon.
One of the most creative wedding presents I’ve seen! There was a STAR WARS bottle opener tucked inside, too.
I asked permission to post them sporting their new robes and it was granted. Thanks Shawn and Celeste.

A beautiful day for a beautiful wedding.

Then the baby elephant ran out and nuzzled the mother elephant.
Another bench. This time at the zoo.
Just a smidgen, a sweet taste.

Convex traffic mirror. At the zoo. Not a monkey. Self- portrait.
Maybe I got the title after viewing the scary preview of the movie which is coming out June first. No dwarfs to be seen. Definitely not for children.
Wikipedia says “Round convex mirrors called Oeil de Sorcière (French for “sorcerer’s eye”) were a popular luxury item from the 15th century onwards, shown in many depictions of interiors from that time. With 15th century technology, it was easier to make a regular curved mirror (from blown glass) than a perfectly flat one.”
And of course they mention the Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck which everyone is familiar with but may not know the painting’s title. See the convex mirror in the details if you click on the Arnolfini Portrait link and scroll to the section Mirror.
Okay, just trying to make a photograph of me a bit interesting to others. Convex mirrors seem interesting to me.
