Toddler in the mist.
Charlie (2) joins cousins Maura and Michael in the cloudy mist.
The first time it started and hissed and the air got foggy, he ran out, not knowing what to expect.
Wasn’t long before he joined them in the Cloud Arbor by Artist Ned Kahn.
When we finish our time at the Children’s Museum the kids always run to the tall metal pipes and eagerly wait for the start of the misty foggy cloud.
You should hear the happy squeals.
A guest blog today.
Look what passed my friend’s house yesterday!
The Queen of the Mississippi.
Deb sent me these photos she took as the riverboat traveled down the Ohio River.
Her home is on Neville Island.
Something you don’t see everyday, that’s for sure. Thanks for sending the photos, Debbie.
Fineview is certainly named appropriately. It is a fine view from this vantage point.
A neighborhood I’d not visited before…went there with a fellow artist J. on Saturday night. Pittsburgh from the North Side of the city.
We were walking across the street to the playground and saw two woodpeckers pecking away on this rotting tree stump. One flew away. iPhone shots today.
You can watch the one pecking away in this video .

And a few other pics for the second ATOP gallery.
I was talking with my friend today and said I don’t think I use the word atop in my everyday vocabulary. But I seem to have a few photos from the archives that illustrate it.

Meet Sophia and Aphrodite.
Last week I made arrangements to photograph Aphrodite for the People at Work Series. Steve and I’ve known Aphrodite for more than 23 years now. Sophia asked me if I knew what Sophia meant and I had to admit I didn’t.
But I do now! Wisdom. And Aphrodite means Love.
I ordered two eggs over medium, dry wheat toast with butter on the side and potatoes with the well done crispy bits. Coffee and a glass of water.
I asked Sophia if I might photograph her, too, and she graciously agreed. I forgot to ask Sophia how long she’s worked at Ritter’s Diner but I know Aphrodite has worked there for 39 years!
Chances are if you’re from Pittsburgh, you’ve had the good fortune to meet both of these wonderful women.
