Looking at a wall

I don’t have much to discuss about this photo – I simply liked the textures and color combinations. This was taken the other night when I was looking around in the antique store windows. I took a spin around the block to walk through the alley when I noticed the green “stacked” doors. I thought they looked interesting and I…

365-351 If you don’t try

These photos are the best I could do today. Let me rephrase that – the best I could do with what I did. I didn’t get around to taking a photo until late today. No big deal, it was just a holiday thing, running around doing errands with my wife, shopping, a late lunch, and in general having a nice…

365-240 Look closely

One thing I like to do sometimes is look at photos I have taken at or near 100% and see if I can find pictures within the picture. When I come across what could be a potential composition I have to decide if a crop is viable or if I have to try a re-shoot. A re-shoot isn’t always possible if it’s a…

365-183 Parade preparations

The neighboring town of Canonsburg has an annual Fourth of July parade and the citizens have a tradition of placing chairs along the route to reserve a vantage point for the festivities. The chairs are placed as much as a week in advance. Now I see that some are roping off large areas also, much to the chagrin of local business…

365-162 A little window shopping

There is a town near where I live that has a number of small antique shops. They are fun to browse through once in a while since they not only have actual antiques, they also sell what I would classify as memorabilia. Those kitschy relics from the 50’s and 60’s. Neat junk basically. The stores were all closed when I drove by today…

365-80 Kind of a crazy place

My 365 shot is of the former Western Center (Western State School and Hospital) near Pittsburgh, PA. I thought I would get a picture of it since I was in the area. The facility closed a few years ago and, suspiciously soon after, the land was sold to a nearby affluent office park development. I’m sure there wasn’t any backhanded political…

365-72 A visit to Roberts House

Aaaargh, I don’t know why I keep losing ALL of my text after I publish a post. It’s getting aggravating. Okay, back to my story. I discovered this old house in a neighboring town that was constructed, I believe, in the late 18th/early 19th century. It’s called Roberts House. I don’t know what the historical significance of it is except that it…
