Pittsburgh - September 7th, 2014

Recommended Posts

This was my first visit to Pittsburgh and it blew me away. I figured I would like it (there really aren't any cities I don't like), but it exceeded all expectations. I especially liked how the topography of the city made it easy to get some good urban shots.

 

When I first got into the city I had no idea where I was going so I found a place to park on the street. That street happen to border Dequesne University and had a large university parking structure next to it. So of course I climbed the stairs to the top. So here is my first picture I took in the city.

The Cathedral or Learning was open when I was there, but most of the doors inside were locked. Still I got some shots from the 36th floor.

I went to the Strip District looking for dinner. Unfortunately it seems almost all the restaurants there are closed on Sunday nights. I found two that were open. One was very expensive, and the other was McDonald's  :-(

Beautiful. You must have had a very full day. Do you take sunshine and blue sky with you everywhere you take pictures? How do you do that?

 

I try to plan my photo-trips around the weather forecast. Of course that doesn't always work out but I got pretty lucky on this trip.
