My First Paid Photo for Pittsburgh Suburban Newspapers

In 1973 I began to work as a stringer for Pittsburgh Suburban Newspapers and Pittsburgh Magazine. This was the first photograph for which I received payment. It was taken at a barber shop in Penn Hills. I can’t remember why or what the story was about but do remember getting a check.

Good Bye to The Missing Year of 2020

The worst thing about 2020 was the time lost. I don’t think age matters. If you are old like me you think how many years do I have left. If you are young it is a major part of your like spent in quarantine. Time lost is time lost. It can’t be replaced. 2021 brings us hope. We will hopefully soon be able to travel again, see family, hold events and dine out. I am eager for that return to a normal life.

As the sun rises on a new year, be safe, wear a mask, get vaccinated and hopefully soon we will be set free.

Captain Beefheart at The Syria Mosque

On October 15, 1972 we went to see Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band at The Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh. Things were so different back then. I simply walked backstage and acted like I belonged. Stood next to the Captain before he went on stage and took this picture and a few others before I was escorted off.

Bodies in Motion Redux

A number of years ago I made a video entitled Bodies In Motion. I didn’t like it. So I remade it a while back and never published it. Hope you find it entertaining. The only video I ever did creating most of the sound track in Garage Band.

Inside Out In Regent Square

Today we had one of the largest snowfalls we have had in years. Over nine inches. The visual difference between the inside of our house and the outside is pretty extreme.
