Moment#1–Doppelganger

Last week Dale Schmitt and I opened our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This one shows two boys inside Saint Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna Austria. One is so angelic and the other well, not so much.

Autumn in Praha

In so many ways, Praha (Prague) reminds me of Pittsburgh my hometown. There is a large Czech population in Pittsburgh and our ethic foods and culture has a definite Czech, Polish and German connection. The hills around the Czech Capitol are also reminiscent of the hills around Pittsburgh. The autumn colors make me think of home.

Play Me

In every country we visited throughout Europe we found pianos in public places available for public performance. This one was inside the mall adjacent to the Central Station in Amsterdam. The piano was in tune and pianist actually knew how to play.

Creative Tree Trimming

I have noticed that in Europe there is a formality and structure to even the smallest garden. This attention to detail extends to even the way they trim their trees. This tree is along the Rhine River near Breisach Germany

Autumn in The Rhineland

A year ago we put on our adventurer’s caps and traveled down the Rhine River in Germany. This scene was shot from the top deck of the Viking Hiln.

Castle Street

From the Charles Bridge I looked up at Prague Castle thinking it might be large. I had no idea. We approached the castle and from the outside I just thought it was a huge building. Not until we were inside the fortifications did I begin to comprehend the size.

It is not just a castle. It is a city. There is a cathedral and two other churches. There are gardens and walks, restaurants and cafes and many shops. In ancient times many people lived inside the castle serving the Kings and Holy Roman Emperor. Now it is the seat of government and people work and live there serving the government and millions of visitors.

This is one of the many streets with small shops catering to tourists.

Two Church Village

The Rhine River cruise was too interesting to be boring. However, after a while the villages became predictable. There was a dock, a town hall, a small square and a Church. This town must have been special because there were two churches along the river.
