I stopped at my buddy's garage to visit and his helper was welding a tail pipe. I took a few minutes to snap some pictures of the work. Since I use this camera on auto only, I used my finger to cover up the flash to achieve this effect.

What is now a Goodwill outlet store was originally a Quaker Super Market on Crawford Avenue in Northern Cambria. After a fire in 1967 the building was partially demolished and a new facade was put on the front. The building is going under some renovation, and the facade was removed, revealing the old store name.
The following 8 photographs were shot at the final dress rehearsal of A Clockwork Orange, the fall play put on by the Theatre Department at Saint Francis University. To save a little space and time, I'm only going to use a few of the pictures.
