Sunrise, Toynbee Tiles and flashes of orange

 It was a gorgeous morning, so I decided to take the silver bike down to Point State Park for my final opportunity to get shots of the tree lit with a stunning sunrise.

Hurry and get over there before they switch off the tree!

They turned the lights off right after I got this shot.

The moon made an appearance too.

 Then, it was off to see if I could get some shots of 2 of the remaining Toynbee Tiles. When I first moved to Pittsburgh, I remember being very curious about them. These were pre-Internet days and research was difficult until I found websites about them years later. Many of the originals are gone, but a Toynbee culture still exists in Philadelphia.

Later in the day on my lunch hour, I ran into E and S again and was delighted to have some company and conversation.

I love her Santa hat bike helmet.

  1. Have you seen the downtown Toynbee Tile with the woman's leg framing the tile?

  2. There's one pair of small legs on the one at Oliver, but I think I remember one with two sets of legs further down Smithfield. Maybe I'm thinking of this one: I wonder if it's still there...
