Squaw Run Creek July, 2011

Creek Wall


Reflecting Pool

Yesterday, I took an afternoon walk in the Squaw Run Creek.  It was beautiful and very cooling!  I saw two snakes, many minnows and some insects.  The Creek's shape and depth changes seasonally.  More photos in the flickr photostream.

Ligonier Creek Shot

Loyalhanna Creek

So summery to hang out by a creek.
Minnows in schools and the wonderful sound of water moving.
You even feel cooler from the creek effect!

Coco de Mer

Coco de Mer

During their honeymoon on the Seychelles, William and Kate received one of these scandalous nuts from the island's foreign minister.  I photographed the one above at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in the 1980's.  It is part of the Women's Series.

Log House Pictures July, 2010



Patch 2

I believe these are shots I took of the old log house on 38th street in Lawrenceville last summer.  I was focusing more on the details than the big picture, however.  Interesting article about it in the P-G this morning.

Sundial  Bruin, PA

Photographed this barn during a trip in 2008, but passed it again yesterday on our way home from Clintonville, PA.   Remember thinking it was such a cool idea, although being changed for daylight savings time would not have been easy!

A Trip to the Zoo




This week, I met my sorority sister, Diane, for a trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.  For me, the visit involved a change of seasons since the last time I'd been there.  But for Diane, it had been more than 30 years since she had visited.  What a jewel we have in Highland Park!  More shots in the flickr photostream.

Pittsburgh Graffiti

You Know Who You Are!


The Kid

Pittsburgh graffiti is an ever changing source of photographs and series for me.  Yinz is obviously a spray painted image from a cut-out.  ANOK is a personal expression and I hope I read the letters correctly.  I have photographed The Kid for several years as it appears in many neighborhoods.  Most now are looking pretty old, so I have to wonder if new ones are being done.  Other neighborhoods where The Kid has appeared are Bloomfield and the Strip District.  As I create a better collection of the graffiti series, I will try to define neighborhoods and similarities.  More in the flickr photostream.

A Summer Walk in Lawrenceville, PA



Shark Appeal

I recently walked a few blocks of Penn Avenue in Lawrenceville.  I diverted over to Mullberry Way toward downtown and over to Spring Way headed back.  The graffiti in the area really caught my eye, as well as the rusted railroad bridge and other structures cast with the patina of time.  More in the flickr photostream.
