Becky B’s Square Light Challenge continues to inspire January’s photographs.
From the Penn Brewery window.
We were waiting for our early dinner to be served and the sun was going down Sunday evening. The Heinz Factory was across the way. Maura watched me as I caught the building framed in the window pane and she asked if she could push the circle shutter. A collaborative effort. It’s a thrill when the grandkids want to take photos.
Southwestern Pennsylvania is famous for baking poppyseed and nut rolls for the holidays
Refrigerator case at the Polish Deli in Pittsburgh’s Strip District Friday afternoon
Here’s another recipe for Polish Poppyseed Roll
In the video/ slideshow Marlene “bakes” Hungarian Nut Rolls with her sisters eight years ago. She bakes it for real every year. It’s delicious. I found the words “beigli – a traditional Hungarian pastry roll filled with walnuts” and Kolache
Here’s a post I did on Povitica -a Croatian Bread that looks similar
One time I explored various tags of mine on the blog posts over the years.
This evening I went to search “soup rutheh” to see some other images of soup that I’ve posted. And there are a lot. Soup season in upon us. I like to make soup.
But here is what else I found. There were at least eight other websites/blogs using photographs I’ve taken without having asked permission and there’s no photo credit. Over the past decade I have received requests from magazines, textbook authors, CD producers and brochure creators and a television show, asking to use a photograph and I’ve granted permission for them to do so.
It’s something to see an early morning school bus headlights and recognize the scene as one I captured being used on a site to illustrate “The Impact of School Start Times” . One of the sites with my jar of jelly beans photographed in my former Photo Class is on a website that is No Longer Found but still, how can they just take it and use it without even asking? Another site of What Do They Eat? has all of my minestrone ingredients with my Spode dish on my kitchen table. I get the idea of the Pinterest pins in different categories and somehow the internet knows they are my photos even though they are showing up on other’s sites and posts because there they are coming up in my search. I know my grandson saw their family dog on someone else’s website about Airedales. Taken from the blog.
I guess one puts a photograph out there into the world and others think it is just fine to snare it and use it.
For all the people who give photo credit and request permission, thank you. It means a lot.
Here are a few of the photos that come up when I searched “soup rutheh” and were found on other sites
We’re Talking Trash Now Why trash comes up with a “soup” search is beyond me.
Pot of English Breakfast Tea On this one they did include my name
Oh well, you get the idea. There were a few others.
Earlier this week- Heinz History Center and Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden.
Laura and Charlie and I enjoyed visiting a couple of Pittsburgh’s highlights while James attended a conference.
We are fortunate there is so much to do in the city.
After lunch summer treat, shared with a friend.
One of Leona’s Ice Cream Sandwiches, cut in half at the deli counter.
Perfect for us to share.

I used to watch the curtain blow in the wind. Someone left that top right window open.
Last week I photographed the window with the moving curtain, wishing I’d had time to video it. Red lights don’t last long enough.
Then last night, the window is gone. Steve was driving. I photographed the missing window with the eerie curtain. And I photographed it again tonight as I was driving over the RD Fleming Bridge again and got a quick shot. Just like that, it’s demolished.
