Stepping Back In Time

If you ha the opportunity to step back in time how far back would you go? Maybe you would choose to visit the 50’s or maybe a little further back, like say the 1800’s? Personally I would like to step back in time just a bit more and visit the 16th century. A time filled with kings, queens, knights, ¬†and jesters. A time when players entertained on the stage with music, song, stories of amazing feats, and manipulation of fire. And for the next few weekends you can do just that at the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival.

For those of you that personally know me you know this is one of my favorite festivals of the year. On Sunday I took my first journey into the past for this year and below are some of the players and merchants from the festival. Over the next few weeks I’ll be visiting the festival and posting some of my photos, I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy taking them. Who knows maybe my photos will inspire you to step back in time and visit the festival.

Until next time I bid thee Good Morrow!

A quick stop in the South Side of Pittsburgh

As always the South Side of Pittsburgh proved to be interesting. And this past weekend was no exception. A group of photographers from the Westmoreland Photographers Society spent the afternoon walking the street and photographing anything and everything. I found these two motorcycle groups to be interesting.

Flowers from Phipps

After a recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens I wanted to share some of my favorite flowers and cactus.

Spring at Phipps Conservatory

A recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens with the Westmoreland Photographers Society brought spring to life. And what flower makes you think of spring? A tulip of course.

How about a blast from the past? Recently a couple of my friends and myself took a trip to the Heinz History Center and they had an amazing display of old toys covering many years and I’m betting that many of you will enjoy this trip down memory lane. So over the next few post I’ll show you some of my favorite toys growing up, How many of them will be your old favorites as well. So today we’re going to move a little dirt Tonka style.

Leave a comment on any of the post sharing your favorite memory of the toy.

Well it’s been a while since my last post. I had to take a little time to deal with a few personal things and just had to put the 365 project on hold. I’ve got things a little under control and should be able to get back on track now. So for today I’ll just post a quick shot from a drive through a tunnel in Pittsburgh.
