If it’s July, it’s time to shoot family portraits for the remarkable families at the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children. For the past six years, I have donated my time to create portraits. This year with my husband assisting, I completed 23.
While I protect the confidentiality of the patients at the school by keeping their photographs private, I can share a portrait of a staff member with her family.
Friday July 7 is a great evening for a one-time photography show in Pittsburgh. The ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) photographers will be exhibiting their recent personal work in the Cultural Trust Building, 4th floor: 807 Liberty Avenue. We have an annual tradition of putting on this one-night exhibit. Each year the art is diverse and fascinating, and most of the artists are there to talk to. We start at 5:30 pm. Please come meet us and enjoy dinner in the neighborhood.
These five of my prints will be on display and for sale. Hope to see you!
Pittsburghers are crazy in love with their sports teams, but we are pumped about the vitality of our city as a whole too. On a sunny summer day, you will find boats in the three rivers, families enjoying Point State Park near the fountain, and restaurants buzzing with activity. You can take in an aerial view without a drone from the lookout on Mount Washington, where I shot this photo.
If you would like a print of this image, leave me a message in the comment section, and be sure to include your email address. The Sheraton Station Square might like to see themselves at the center of the universe!
Be sure to tune in tonight to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins battle for Stanley Cup: Game 6!

It looks like they’re expecting rain at the Pittsburgh Arts Festival. It seems every June, the brave artists sitting in their booths of painting, photography, jewelry, pottery and other crafts have to cope with inclement weather. This week is no exception.
It was a perfect day to be a tourist in Pittsburgh today. Lots of Pittsburghers strolled through the farmer’s market in Market Square while we enjoyed a family lunch at City Works. The iconic view from Mount Washington never disappoints. The temperature, humidity and the puffy clouds all conspired to create the perfect day, reflected here in the PPG Tower.
As my husband said, it’s like this here all the time.
These yellow bells caught my eye at Pittsburgh’s Phipps Conservatory. Look at the twisted tufts of green leaves at the base of the stem, sprouting like a fountain. At the top of the long stems, the yellow bell shaped flowers almost look like shower heads, topped with another tuft of green leaves. Who designed this flower? Can you name it?
