Early Daylilies

Early daylilies

Every year old Pa Pitt gives you pictures of these daylilies, because every year they are the earliest to bloom. They came from an unnamed hybrid seedling, so it is very likely that this exact variety exists nowhere else on earth. Raindrops add a decorative effect to the pictures.

Cathedral of Learning in the Rain

Cathedral of Learning from Schenley Farms

It started to rain while Father Pitt was out for a walk today, which gave us this atmospheric picture of the Cathedral of Learning looming through the mist like a heavenly palace behind the pleasant houses of Schenley Farms. This is why old Pa Pitt’s cameras live in a waterproof bag. Father Pitt himself is not waterproof, but he does dry fairly quickly.

If you like black and white and all the greys in between, you might enjoy Father Pitt’s Monochrome World, a very simple site that collects his favorite black-and-white pictures from Pittsburgh and elsewhere.
