I’ve followed Cee’s blogposts for tears https://ceenphotography.com/2019/05/16/cbw-hands-feet-or-paws/ Click to see her gallery of Black and White photos with Gsnds or Feet or Paws.
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
Charlie (3 1/2) watched Laura and James pull out of the driveway and head to a family wedding last Friday the 27th. Mary and I stayed and played with Charlie.
He didn’t cry. Penny watched by his side.
I’ve posted similar pictures of the same scene. You wonder what’s going through his mind. A little wave.
Looking around the walls of Mark and Erika’s home, I see several paintings by Pittsburgh artist William Pfahl.
Here is the latest addition to their collection of Bill Pfahl’s art.

Here is his palette
thanks Bill for commemorating the important Pittsburgh landmarks that mean so much to Mark and Erika and their children.
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.
A wish for every happiness, always.
Cheers to the newly married royal couple.
Love one another is the perfect theme for the world.
Today I saw my parents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary (1939-89) champagne flutes in Mark and Erika’s China cabinet. Mark and Erika (2002) and Laura and James (2011) both used these flutes at their weddings.
I had set the alarm this morning for five AM but Grandma Mar woke up before then and texted me upstairs. We’re here together this weekend, watching the grandkids. We woke up the girls and they made it down to the couch. They fell back asleep, snuggled in blankets until we woke them up when the bride arrived at Windsor Castle.
Friends I know were watching snd texting from Florida and Pennsylvania. It was a very happy day. Wishing Harry and Meghan a long and happy life together.
This week’s challenge was just that- a challenge.

Something there is that does love a bridge
The Pittsburgh Bridges galleries from the past two days have evoked a tremendous response from blog viewers. The views today add more weather and some are taken from the river while on the Ducky Tour or the wedding below.
Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress really unleashed so many of the BRIDGE photos I’ve taken. And finding so many images with bridges makes me realize I have taken bridges for granted.
And my friend V is right about the photos- people respond to the the bridge structures, NOT the sunsets taken from a bridge.

Kevin and Kat were married on the Three Rivers Queen and there are numerous shots with various bridges in their wedding highlights.
