Neil and I drove around Latrobe, one kinda-sunny day. It was unusually warm for a Pennsylvania winter day... upper 40s. Here are a few images I got...before Neil and I got lost trying to take a scenic route through the backwoods. haha
The image I actually am opening with is my favorite from the set. I love its urban vintage feel.
I know it's a steeling town, but this image beckoned gold tones.
A view the opposite way... of the small town.
What's that? A train overhead?
We then took a road up the hill to overlook the town...but the lookout spot is actually in the middle of the cemetery. Burial grounds can be sorta cool.
A full 180 degree turn and this is what I saw:
Ain't it cute? :)
Then, as cliche it might be for the locals, we headed down the highway that skirted the grounds of St. Vincent college.
It is a camera tease though, in all its grandeur.
A little closer:
Then, like I said, we got lost...and because Neil didn't bring his glasses and it was getting dark, I had to take the driver's seat and therefore put the camera aside. :(
But the next day, we went into Pittsburgh, about 45 miles away from Latrobe. Neil's brother, Steve, was kind enough to chauffeur... our destination was the museum of natural history. To be honest, it's not really my bag. But on the way I saw pretty buildings and such.
How I would love to shoot a couple in front of this door...or maybe even a bride... sigh.
Then we headed to Lawrenceville for dinner and bowling. Again, I was entertained on the walk there. In Penn, all the buildings are so close together. And wires galore! I find a sort of charm in it though.
We ate yummy kabobs at this place:
And then it got dark. :(
Anyway, I'll post again about this later, but in other news... I have all my artist original prints for sale now on my gallery-viewing platform.
If you want to take a gander, feel free..I tried to organize them by theme, which can be difficult since some of them overlap. Anyway, click HERE.
And of course, also feel free to buy!!! :)
