Wordless Wednesday


City Snippets Puddle Study

Along Grant Street, downtown Pittsburgh, after being released from jury duty. You know how I like reflections. 

I walked a few blocks to the train station to meet Steve who was picking me up.

 There must have been a lot of rain while I was inside the courthouse all day. 

Clintonville Blossoms and Bubbles

Strolling with Charles (1) around the neighborhood. 

Hot summer sun. The colors so rich and alive.

I appreciate the gardeners’ efforts. 

Back at the house on the front porch he said “bubble” and pointed to the chair.Underneath was a red plastic bear with bubble stuff. You had to squeeze the Bear’s stomach and it took awhile for me to get the hang of it.

Man and his Best Friend Look Right

You could write a caption for this photo. It looks as if I posed them in this stance. We were walking back to our apartment

I asked if it would be okay if I took their photo. Well, in gestures.  The man agreed.

The dog sat so handsomely.

His owner tried to get him to look at me, turn his face. So kind.   I said, no problem, don’t worry, it’s okay.

Not sure what had his attention down the path towards the market but he sat so still, at the ready.

When a Dog Smiles at the Camera

You have to take a picture. I asked the owner’s permission.  She looked as if she had just been on a run or about to go on one with some friends.

His name is Oliver!

Oliver is a Heinz 57 mutt and he was smiling for the camera!

He’s six months old and has that puppy energy and enthusiasm.  What a happy guy.

I’d just come out of the end of the year faculty meeting/gathering at the Hofbrauhaus on the edge of  South Side Works near the riverfront trail.

So thanks Oliver (and your owner also- sorry I didn’t get your name)

I know Murphy smiles for the camera, too.

What a great personality!
