Didn’t Make the Cut #1–Steel City Flyer

Working with a curator means that not all the images submitted will be used. Galleries can only hold so many pieces so some of my images didn’t make the cut for the Moment and Souls Exhibition. This one is entitled Steel City Flyer and was taken at the 2016 Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta.

You can purchase a framed image of this piece at my Commercial Gallery.

Posing at The Regatta

One of the most fun things to do at the the Three Rivers Regatta is to watch the people. In today’s society it is not hard to find someone posing but this young lady makes it look good.

The Three River’s Regatta

For the last 40 years in Pittsburgh August is the month of the Three Rivers Regatta Early this week I posted about an event at the rgeatta, the first Pittsburgh Flugtag sponsored by Red Bull..

So much fun at the Regatta is people watching. I have a friend who says he avoids the Regatta as if it were a Superfund Site. Our strategy is go early and leave early before the big crowds arrive. Here are some street shots from the day.

Pittsburgh Flugtag 2017

On Saturday we witnessed our first Flugtag which was held at The Pittsburgh Regatta for the first time. Flugtag means flight time in German.

It is an event event organized by Red Bull in which competitors attempt to fly home-made, human-powered flying machines. They are size-limited to around 133 feet and weight-limited to approximately 330 lb. A team of four pushes the pilot and vessel off a pier and in Pittsburgh over the Allegheny River. Well actually into the river because most of these flying machines rarely fly at all.

The world record for the longest flight is 258 feet. In the Pittsburgh wind yesterday the longest flight was 121 feet. The event raises a lot of money for charities around the world and it is a hoot to watch. Each team does a silly performance before their flight and crafts are designed with the area in mind. Yesterday there was a Pirogi Plane, a Flying Kielbasa and Mr Rodgers themed craft.

Pittsburgh High Flyer

We didn’t have a lot of time to spend at the Pittsburgh Regatta this year, which is much to my regret. However, I did manage to get one decent shot of this guy flying high over his jet ski on the Allegheny River. Most of the flyers had someone backing them up on the jet ski but not this guy. He was flying solo.

Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta 2016

This was our first year for visiting the Three Rivers Regatta in Pittsburgh. It was interesting, different and a lot of fun. We didn’t get to spend too much time. We had been out all afternoon registering voters and we were hot and tired. Next year I would like to make a day of it. See some music, take a tripod and do some serious photography

Below are a couple of snapshots form this year’s event.
