Day – 117 Lines

Walking through the terminal in Metropolitan Airport, I noticed how the lights in the circling created converging lines; wide at the closest point and narrowing in the distance.

Day 44 Pittsburgh Night Skyline

Sometimes you have to take the road less traveled to see something extraordinary. I’m sure Grandview Ave. isn’t rare to those who live in Pittsburgh, but it’s a new site for me. I shot this night scene with my iPhone 4 in HDR mode. I love the way the lights reflect in the water. This is where three rivers come together, known as the Confluence.

I turned around and there was another night scene photo opportunity, St. Mary of the Mount.

Day 6 Oh Christmas Tree

Christmas has come and gone, New Years day has come and gone, and all of the Christmas decorations have been taken down, placed in their plastic containers and stowed away until next year. But we just couldn’t bring ourselves to throw our Christmas tree away. We love the Frasier Fir and it’s short, soft needles. The Frasier Fir has been our choice for Christmas trees the last 11 years. So, we have begun a new tradition, instead of throwing out the tree after all the decorations have been removed; we strip it down until only the lights remain, and then we place it on the deck to be enjoyed for another month. This makes a beautiful night light and also helps us to remember the Joy of Christmas and God’s gift to all of us; the birth of His only Son, Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16,17 NIV
