This week Hop Along releases their new album: Painted Shut. To commemorate the occasion, I decided this would be a good time to post some of my photos of Hop Along that I have taken over the years.

They will be playing at Cattivo in Pittsburgh on June 6th and I highly recommend seeing them live. I’ll be there, with my camera in hand.

Recently I have begun to venture into food photography, it is rather fitting as I love to cook. Maybe someday I’ll start blogging my own recipes and photos, but until then you can enjoy these delicious looking photos of burgers and shakes from Stack’d and Tipsy Cow restaurants in Shadyside.
Last month I had the opportunity to go up to the top floor of the Cathedral of Learning for an exam of the newest fledgling falcon hatched by Dorothy, the peregrine falcon who has lived on top of the Cathedral for over a decade. One of these photos appeared in the June 15th issue of…
