Best Bet

Most people walk down a street and hardly give the scene a notice, oblivious to the “art” surrounding them. Not so photographers Rolfe Ross and Bernie Andreoli, who have been enjoying photographic adventures together for 15 years, capturing “Random Moments” in street scenes from Coney Island to St. Lucia, from Times Square to Miami’s Little Haiti. Their show opens tonight with a reception 6 to 8:30 and runs through March 30 at CameraWork Gallery, 515 Center St., Scranton. Open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 510-5028.
