You know number one?
Zeke’s Coffee- I just wish you could smell the aroma of these freshly roasted beans.
Yep, it’s coffee!
#1 on the recognizable scent list!
What a lovely hostess gift😀
Jen H at WordPress has created the weekly Photo Challenge: Local.
What feels familiar, home. The places you know by heart. Local diner, local playground, local neighborhood, local church,local streets-I live in the city by a park.
I notice I shoot a lot of local coffee, too.
Here’s my iPhone local gallery. Pittsburgh.
A fellow blogger, Yvette, asked me how many of these People at Work portraits are in the series. I have lost count! I started this project a long time ago. I will know soon, though, once I dig in the archives.
Yesterday I posted Piano Tilting, Tuning and Repair as part of my People at Work Series- Primarily Pittsburgh.
What I didn’t mention is that I was invited to have a show at Panza Gallery in Millvale in July -July of 2018! This gives me plenty of time to photograph new People at Work.
I’ve had a lot of people working in my house this year, too.
When I taught photography at high school, I shared my People at Work portraits to students so they could a variety of people doing different jobs. I think that’s how the series started. I’d engage with the person working and talk to them about my project.
Now I’ve made up some postcards and it adds some legitimacy to the project and keeps me on track and determined to work on photographing new and interesting portraits.
Craig Morrow on the Left from Bicycle Heaven, Mark Panza at work, framing,Ron Ray slicing strawberries for his funnel cake business, and at the top right Brye with her delicious baked goods at her and her husband’s excellent coffee shop- Zeke’s. My middle portrait is the cotton candy man from PNC Park.
Today plumber Pete Tomkins returned to replace my bathroom faucets. He already put in a hot water heater. I found him through my electrician Scott, (I still need his photo) who put in the breaker box so Dan McDonald could install my new furnace. It’s a regular family tree.
I had photographed Pete a few weeks ago when he installed the hot water heater.Thanks for agreeing to be in the show People at Work- Primarily Pittsburgh.
Thanks Pete, for entrusting me with capturing your wonderful good nature!
Seriously considering what to do next about my old plumbing???
Unexpected find outside Zeke’s Coffee, Friday morning.
Steve waits as I capture myself in this golden orb. The weekly photo challenge – harmony
I felt happy the leftover ornament was waiting there with snow on top as we exited Zeke’s.
Definitely through my eyes-struck a chord within me, made me laugh.
“Of course, harmony also has a meaning outside of the world of music: “the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.” I look forward to seeing Harmony — a photo that is, or makes you feel harmonious — through your eyes.” Michelle W. of WordPress
Different parts of the country have Drive Thru coffee all over the place. Not Pittsburgh! Until NOW.
My plan is to be at the new Zeke’s, close to opening, on my way to school
A good way to start a very long day- Parent conferences/Open House tomorrow.
They are calling it a “soft opening” as they are still “under construction”.
Remember the urban block that is slated to be razed?
Zeke’s Drive Thru will be at 6314 Broad Street in East Liberty
(near the Post Office and next door neighbors to Station Street Hot Dogs, starting Thursday morning at 6:30) You can see the GOOGLE flag at Bakery Square from the premises. Hope they make it around the block to support their new neighbor.
There’s a banner on the roof. You can’t miss it. Where the pound bags are just that- one pound!
