More yard art down the block from Laura’s house. In the afternoon sun. An eclectic mix. A few crops below, so you don’t miss the details. I took just one quick shot cause I wanted to get home before dark.
Spotted Monday afternoon, as I got into my car. I was leaving Columbus to return home to Pittsburgh. You know I’ve got that July Fourth birthday as an undercurrent theme so it caught my eye. I might be one of the few people who own an Uncle Sam nutcracker. It looked like the kind of item one would take to The Antique Road Show for appraisal but there it was, glued to a stone.

Maybe there will be another opportunity.
It was something to see, even if the lights went by in a flash. Like an unresolved three D image.
Solar Powered Dragonflies. They keep changing colors.

Night time view at Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s. You can see two of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars he’s restored.
When we pulled up to the stop sign, we saw Kennywood Fireworks at seemingly eye level because their street is up so high.
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.
