Inside The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Pittsburgh

For our first outing in almost two years to someplace other than a restaurant we decided to see the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit on the North Side. It was an exhilarating and amazing experience. It literally made me gasp and my wife said it gave her the chills. The music was perfect for each series of images and sound was beautifully rendered. Make sure you are sitting down and experience a psychedelic experience without ingesting drugs.

Previously Unpublished Dawn of The Dead Images #1

A few years ago I began to offer “behind the scene” images from my two day assignment on the site of Dawn of The Dead (1978.) I published 47 of the images in my 2015 book; Zombie Nights on Amazon. I have begun to realize that true fans of this cult film don’t care if the images are sharp, free of artifacts and perfectly exposed. Recently in scanning my archives for another project I found images that I never shared on this blog or in the book. They just didn’t meet my standard of work that was worth selling. So here is the first of the new ones of the crew and George Romero.

You can purchase the book at the Amazon Link above or at the Living Dead Museum in Monroeville

Setting up The Camera

Black and Gold City

I found this unremarkable color image in my archive and decided it would look better in selective color. As the sun set it caused the buildings to light up as if a golden spotlight was shining on them.

Run Around The Square

In just one more week our neighborhood will be transformed once again. Each year near the end of August Pittsburgh has one of its best 5k races. There are a number of things that make Run around The Square</em> different. The race goes through the cobblestone streets of Pittsburgh’s Regent Square Neighborhood and then through Frick Park ending in Fern Hollow in the midst of the park.Along the way there are water breaks, cmapagne breaks and live musical performers to entertain the racers.

At the end of the race Regent Square’s famous Hot Dog Shop serves up free hot dogs and beer to the crowd in the park and other local business also offer water, snacks and free merchandise to entrants.

The Vitava River at Prague

Revisiting and editing my image library always provides surprises. I didn’t think this shot of the river was important because it was not the famous Charles Bridge. Yet the view of the river with the church in the background is lovely none the less

Morning Mass at Sacre Cœur

You are not allowed to take pictures inside Sacre Cœur In Paris during Mass. I have a personal rule as a photographer to respect the rules. However, I also reserve the right to play dumb. When I enter such a place I find a location to take the shot I want and quickly take as many as I can until I am stopped. I then claim, I didn’t know, apologies and politely put my camera away. I didn’t get off many shots but here it is, morning mass.

This Years Crop

When our new neighbors put in a fence I wondered how it would change our backyard. It only improved it by giving us a little more privacy I thought. Then I realized the real advantage. The deer that would every year travel up from Frick Park to eat our lilies would no longer have access to our back garden.

For the last two years we have had amazing blooms. This year they not only survived the deer but also a terrible storm that brought down trees but not our five feet tall lilie

Happy Birthday America

Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Except for the fireworks. I use to love fireworks as a kid. However now I realize how upsetting they are to veterans and also to pets I have revised ny opinion. However time for a great barbecue with friends and usually great weather helps us appreciate our freedoms and hopefully we can hold on to these in troubling time.
