Pittsburgh, The Bride on Penn Avenue, Garfield

From 2013, an oft-photographed section of Penn Avenue, this one while driving through on a blustery November day a few years ago. The tromp-l'oeil mural, by Judy Penzer, is for me a sort of memento mori because the artist and her friend Jill Watson (who is credited with the concept for the mural) died in the bombing of TWA Flight 800 over Long Island Sound. Every time I drive by, often several times a day, I think of that.
