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.

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.

Thinking About The National Aviary

Since returning to Pittsburgh we have been members of the National Aviary. It’s the largest Aviary in The United States and we are fortunate to have it in Pittsburgh. We go there often enough that I have my favorite birds and during this horrible pandemic I frequently wonder how they are doing. I can’t wait until we can venture out and visit again.

Missing the Phipps Conservatory

I am reading a novel by Stewart O’Nan entitled Emily Alone. The author is from Pittsburgh and his descriptions of our city are really accurate. The chapter I am reading today is about The Phipps Conservatory and he made me realize how much I miss going there. We are members and normally we visit three or four times a year. Not his year though, hopefully we will be able to go next year.
