Lawrenceville Graffiti





I had the privilege of a tour of an old commercial site in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh a few years back, before renovations began.  I'll post some photos of the old building another day, but here is the outdoor graffiti.  I believe it is still there.

Tangled Up in White


It has been a winter wonderland here in Pittsburgh, with snow every day for the past week.  I took the opportunity to strap on the snowshoes and take a hike at Beechwood Farms.  The wide, clear trails are perfect for winter hiking.  The thing that struck me most today was how tangled all the bare branches look in the winter.  I never think of them that way in the summer, when they weave themselves into a canopy, but in winter it looks so different.
