Last week, Ashley, my parents and I went into downtown Pittsburgh. My parents were doing some genealogical research so Ashley and I did some more wandering around downtown. We walked over to the north side for a little bit and walked along the river. There was a chance of rain so the lighting was pretty good for pictures. Ashley and I really enjoy spending time together exploring and taking pictures so it was a really nice time. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures I was able to take during our most recent visit to Pittsburgh.
On Wednesday (May 14th), Ashley and I went for a walk down the boardwalk and in Ocean City to take some pictures. Since the beach season doesn’t start until Memorial Day, it was pretty quiet around town and the rides are only open on the weekend. Here are some of the pictures I took on our walk. Later in the week I will post some pictures of the rides when they were running during the day and at night.
Yes, if you are a follower of Leanne you may have noticed that I stole her title, but, I like it so I’m using it and giving her credit.
Last weekend (May 3rd), Ashley and I went to downtown Lynchburg just a few miles away from Liberty’s campus for our last date day of the semester. Compared to the other cities I’ve lived near, such as Kalamazoo, Michigan, Syracuse, New York, and now Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Lynchburg has a smaller metropolitan center. The city was founded in 1791 so it has lots of history and character and Ashley and I wanted to explore the main street and take some pictures of the city we go to school in but rarely explore.
We got to look at the clean-up of the oil train derailment from a few days before. After that, we headed over to see the “Love” sculpture that is on a trail just out from downtown. Ashley wrote a really good article about it for the school newspaper.
Week two of monochrome monday is here and week 8 of Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness has past and I continue to be inspired and amazed by the talent of the bloggers’ work that is displayed in these posts. It’s so hard to pick favorites, but these week I really liked Leanne’s photo of an old abandoned car at a place called Pink Lakes. To read more about it, visit her blog!
Keeping with the alliteration this week as well, my subject for macro photography this week is animals, specifically furry (fuzzy) ones. I only have one pet, a cat named Chipotle:
Walking to my dorm from the last home softball game of the season, I noticed one link in the fence that was not in line with the others and happened to have a cobweb hanging from it. I had to take a picture of it and it came out so much better than I had expected.
I named the picture “Out of Line” because the one chain link almost seems like a rebel; trying to escape from its mundane, uniform, dull existence.
