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:
