Some pics from Oakland the other day

Posted by admin on June 16th, 2011 filed in General

We visited the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh the other day.

And saw a dinosaur!

And the best graffiti!

And a naked statue!

And a fountain with sculpture!

And this thing!

You know what I didn’t see/photograph? A pack of steampunks! I missed them because I was busy parallel parking and they were gone by the time I found a spot. I had only a glimpse of one fitted vest and white shirt sleeves. *sigh* Bert not only got to see them, but he ate his lunch near them, too!

    As usual, love your pics! Thanks for sharing!

    I was not aware that steampunks actually existed in this world. I was also unaware that they travel in packs.

    They do exist! I didn’t make them up! Ron has been showing me some very compelling photographic evidence*!

    Sure they travel in packs! Why not? It’s the best way to do adventures, expeditions, and general feats of derring-do. Would you prefer the mad machinists and clockwork contraptors move about in a spectacular spectacle of a marvelous masquerade?

    Hehe, I find it interesting that you were more taken aback by the existence of steampunks than of the giant freakin’ dinosaur in the picture! It’s huge!

  5. Travis Says:

    Oh, I have no problem with dinosaurs. I married a pterodactyl/pig hybrid, remember?

  6. admin Says:

    You know, I often wonder how you’ve managed to stay married.

    WOW! Thats almost as cool as the Bear-O-Dactyl.

    The Oatmeal even wrote a comic about it.
