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.

The city can be a scary place for some but from the right perspective it can also be magnificent. I have the great fortune to live near a city that has a most beautiful skyline and last night the weather was warm and the rivers were calm, so I just had to take a little time and take a few photos. Now, the city I live near is settled just below Mt. Washington which allows for a unique view from above the city, which really makes for some great photos of the skyline. The city I’m referring to is none other than Pittsburgh, Pa. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit I would recommend taking the time to stop by. While your there stop on Mt. Washington and take in the view of the city, oh and by the way you have to stop by Primanti Brothers for one of their world famous sandwiches.

I hope you enjoy the views from Mt. Washington as much as I do.
