Someone Got Your Goat? 2009

Someone got your goat?

I see no small amount of similarity between these two…perhaps it’s the expressions.

As much as I love my woods and streams, I love to photograph the city. On my occasional trips into Pittsburgh, the camera is always in hand. I’m always sensitive about photographing people, but this guy really didn’t mind.

 


Public Library: 2011

The public computers in the public library provide just as much an opportunity as the books on the shelves ever did. Decades ago, my grandparents learned to read at this library along with other immigrants and then used the library in the midst of all the other dozens of nationalities residents in Carnegie. Now generations of people are still visiting the library, still representing the variety of people in our community, still taking advantage of what it offers, free to the people.

As much as I love my woods and streams, I love to photograph the city. On my occasional trips into Pittsburgh, the camera is always in hand. This particular day I knew I’d be attempting to photograph Heinz Field while the Steelers played the Packers (no one would ever call me a sports fan of any sort, but I’ll photograph an event), so the good camera went with me.

I also like the distance view because in this one, the gentleman is such an anachronism!

I’ll have several other photos to post from this city visit as well as a subsequent one. On the original visit, I was dropping artwork at a gallery for a show. On the second visit, I went to the opening at night, and the city at night is really beautiful.
