Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank celebrated 50 years of marriage on Saturday September 12th. Happy Anniversary.
Today I went up to their home above the Monongahela River and photographed them with the decorations their daughters had put up on Saturday. Here is Debbie photographing the happy couple in front of the mantel today.
And here is the 1956 Chevy Bel Air Uncle Frank painted He calls it Anniversary Gold. He renamed the paint color to commemorate the anniversary.He is a master of restoring Vintage cars.

Happy Fiftieth Anniversary Linda and Frank
Here’s a photograph from a family wedding with Debbie and Kim
Although I’m back in Pittsburgh tonight (only 36F) I wanted to post this photo shoot my sister and I stumbled upon after our mini-golf game. Just the other day we learned St. Augustine is a destination wedding spot.
This morning, when I heard today’s date, I realized it was on this day, eighty years ago, that my parents married. (Well I had a bit of help as my friend counted the decades by tens.)Although they passed away in 2000 and 2002 I was thinking about their wedding day all those years ago.

Her photography is excellent- she inspires the blogging community, and compiles links of host challenges created by other bloggers all over the world. When WordPress stopped the Weekly Photo Challenges feature, Cee’s challenges (Oddball, Flower and B & W to name a few) prompt thousands of posts around the Internet.
Cee’s colorful Flower posts have always cheered me on many a gray winter day.
Cee visits my blog, clicks the like button and leaves a good word for me.
Then on another blog-Lingering Visions– I read the posted photo was prompted by Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. Hands feet or paws. Both bloggers prompted me to post my Hands, Feet or Paws photo.
This 2016 wedding pic, taken in Austin Texas, (thank you Anna, Aric and Champ) has both hands and paws
Although I’m back home in Pittsburgh, I saw this elegant bride in Reykavik on Saturday night. I’d just taken a photo of a dress in a window and walked while becoming wet in the sleeting cold rain. Just felt magical to see her. I hope she doesn’t mind .
A rainy Sunday afternoon -Museum Island. A bride and groom were being photographed, as I was making my way to see the ancient bust of Nefertiti at the Neues Museum. One of the five museums on Museuminsel- Museum Island.
