The Nave

Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Pittsburgh PA sits silently in the quiet suburb of Larimer. Time has not been kind to Help of Christians, which could accommodate up to 1,000 worshippers in the nave and balcony in its heyday in the ’50s and ’60s. I believe this structure was left to rot away around 2007 or thereabouts and since has been vandalized with all its stained glass stolen.

We visited this beauty last weekend on a photography trip and it did not disappoint. This shot was from the balcony overlooking the Nave.

Thanks for Stopping!

Dedicated to Crazy 8

 Krazy-8, was a meth distributor formerly associated with Jesse Pinkman and Tuco Salamanca.

 As Walter threw a can in the bin he saw the broken pieces of the dropped plate. He paused and reflected on this, sensing something was wrong and realizing it was the only time his guard was down around Krazy-8 as he was unconscious. He pieced together the broken plate and he discovered a blade-shaped piece missing revealing Krazy-8’s true murderous intentions and creating the final resolve necessary to kill him. Walt, feeling his trust was betrayed approached Krazy-8 giving the impression he was going to free him. Krazy-8 said to Walt “You’re doing the right thing” and responded to Walt asking if he was angry with “Live and let live”. When Walt saw Krazy-8 reaching for the shard as he believed he was about to be released he said, with a tear rolling down his face “The moment I do are you going to stick me with that broken piece of plate” he then pulled back on the bike lock choking Krazy 8 against the pole as Krazy-8 desperately swung the plate weapon back trying to hit Walt.

I processed this watching episode 3 of Breaking Bad …and the cat’s in the bag (for the umpteenth time), I thought it was an appropriate title.
