A Fourth-Light

The theme for the photo challenge this week was Half-light.  I’m back in the Burgh after a Spring vacation to New York City and Ohio. 

By the time I left the University Commons, I missed the half-light

It was almost dark. 

I titled this series a fourth-light. 

I like the dark blue sky backdrop for a few of Pittsburgh’s iconic structures. 

I’d enjoyed my friend Cj’s poetry reading at Carlow U. Tuesday night.

St. Paul Cathedral at Night- Pittsburgh PA

Oakland section of Pittsburgh. Looked like Europe to me. I was surprised to see it so bright as I guess I haven’t driven this route at night lately.

After the poetry reading at Pitt,  I was driving by last Thursday night and noticed the illuminated facade so drove around the block and photographed the cathedral at night.

The building history is available here.  The date of the building on their website is 1906.
