Favorite Photo for March

I've been saving this one.

The boys and I spent a very sunny Saturday late-morning early in the month at Station Square. It used to be the train hub for Pittsburgh and now is a gorgeous tourist attraction/late-night hot spot/shopping district.  A lot of the train station architecture and history remains in tact, which, of course, is what makes it so interesting.

The day was very bright like I said, so challenges were present. But, I got a handful of shots that made it worthwhile for me. We went to Moe's for lunch afterward, which made it worthwhile for them.

This, my favorite shot, was taken out of view of all of the finery and attraction of the place. Three utilitarian doors, which looked like they probably house maintenance equipment or the like. I love the urban, well-used feel of the backdrop, the boys' poses and the way the window balances the third door with the occupancy of other two.

I'm posting this as my favorite photo for March over at Click It Up a Notch.

  1. Great shot! I only hope my boys will still want me to take their photos (and put them online) when they are older. Right now as toddlers and baby's they don't have much of a say.

    1. LOL. Thanks, Mindi. You're training them from the ground up to be comfortable in front of the camera, like I did, so there's hope. :-)
      My oldest (in red) is a budding writer and follows my blog on his reader because he likes to see what I have to say about these many photos I take of them.

  2. I like the color, the composition, and your sons' stances. The look like urban models! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love simplicity of the background and how their sweaters pop out of the photo. This is a fun, urban shot!!!!

  4. I love how you used the doors to frame your boys! The pop of color really adds to the neutral colors of the background. Well done!


Thanks for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear your comments on my photography. I see this as a learning tool, so constructive criticism is welcome.
