Snaps From The Road : Falling Water and Johnstown

Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA Falling Water and Johnstown, PA

The first few and last images are from Johnstown, PA. A community that has been hit extremely hard with the closing of coal mines and later steel mills. There is however a great downtown area with cafe's and musicians playing in the park gazebo.

The rest of the images are from Frank Loyd Wright's Falling Water House. I have been wanting visit the house since I became interested in architecture, and my first visit to see his Oak Park homes.

Go There: Falling Water- 1491 Mill Run Rd, Mill Run, PA
If you are planning on a visit I recommend making a reservation for a tour. While just walking around the grounds is great, learning the history of the family and house helps you appreciate the beauty.

Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill

A few years ago I had the privilege of seeing the great Audra McDonald perform as Billy Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill on Broadway. The other day I was looking for something to watch, and came across the HBO production filmed at Cafe Brasil in New Orleans, I highly recommend checking it out. Below is a preview:

Tijuana

Back November I took a quick trip to Tijuana to have lunch with a friend and walk around. First we checked out a cool new spot called Colectivo 9 which has 9 different restaurants around a courtyard. After two rounds of ceviche, we headed down to the beach by public taxi. After walking to the border fence, we found ourselves in a locals bar and eating more ceviche.

Go There: Collective 9 - Av RevoluciĆ³n 1265, Zona Centro, 22000 Tijuana

The Finishing Village of Charlotteville

Charlotteville is a tiny fishing village on the North West side of the island. As I pulled into town, I saw someone fishing and immediately darted out of the car to photograph them. It turned out to be an incredibly nice man named Antonio and his family. We had a great time chatting about life and living on the island.
