Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


“The Strip”, Pittsburgh’s Historic Market District is a one-half square mile area northeast of downtown Pittsburgh, where you can explore restaurants, shops, outdoor street vendors and nightlife spots.

My prayer is that we do not become so involved in the daily affairs of life that we take no note of the things of change that areย  rapidly evolving around us.

    This Nation is going through some rapid changes, mostly due to politics, Francine. My prayer is that the people will wake up in time to save our Nation’s Sovereignty and our Constitution. Both are swirling down the toilet at breakneck speed. Sadly, our Government would have the people believe their efforts to suppress our 2nd & 4th Amendment rights are for our own protection. I am not sure what excuse (if they’ve even bothered to provide one) they have for abusing our first Amendment rights. They just passed H.R. 347 which means that peaceful protest can now be considered a felony. Cities and building will change with use, need, deterioration, etc, but our Nation as a whole is getting ready to lose her freedoms and that is my greatest fear. My heart breaks for our heirs if we don’t recognize the changes that are, indeed, taking place around us everyday.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to drop a thunderstorm into your post here (your photos are beautiful), but your prayer triggered my own response and my own prayers for this nation as a whole. God Bless America!

  14. I like this B&W gallery very much!
