Thanks to All That Serve

I realize that wars are necessary sometimes. However it now seems that we are engaged in forever wars and the military industrial complex prefers to have conditions of permanent warfare, something I do not support. However the people that do battle for our country deserve nothing less that our full support and respect.Today we are in a different kind of war against a virus and the soliders in this war are no lesser heroes than those who do battle over seas.

Memorial Day is a day when we pay tribute to all that went to battle on our behalf. Thanks for your service and to the families that have lost loved ones, thanks for your sacrifice.

In 1979 I went on one of my last photographic assignments for Pittsburgh Magzine. You can read all about it in Zombie Nights: My Two Nights with the Living Dead.

I have licensed some of the images to be used in the upcoming mini series, Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Times.

Episode Two is now available on Amazon and iTunes and is totally focused on horror and science fiction movies. The first 20 minutes is mostly about George Romero and Dawn of The Dead and features interviews with Ronero, Tom Savini and most of the cast Members. Below is one of my images they use in the movie.

Goslings in South Park

South Park is a large Allegheny County Park south of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. As a boy we lived near to the park and it was a regular site of many adventures. We went to visit yesterday specifically to see the Buffalo and escape quarantine for a few hours. Our dog was stunned by the Buffalo and could not stop barking at them. Unfortunately where they were grazing made it impossible to get a good photograph of them.

There were a fair number of Canada geese in the park and on the pond a few goslings. It was great to get out of isolation and see such a sign of hope as the cute little goslings swimming with their mom.

Cathedral of Learning 4/28/2020

It’s strange to be able to stand in the middle of the street and take this shot. No cars, one person walking at high noon. This is our second outing in 7 weeks and still Pittsburghers seem to be following the guidelines for social distancing. This is probably the reason there has not been a big surge in cases here. I hope we have the stamina to keep it up.

Isis and Trixie in Frick Park

I have met these two before. Usually they are walking together but like the rest of they seemed to be properly socially distant. Both were rescued when the owners realized they were severely allergic to dogs but still wanted pets. The story I was told was that Trixie was rescued from a stripper who used her as part of the act. Normally you can see them being walked along Braddock Avenue near Frick Park adding as special ambiance to our neighborhood.
