I’ve been living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a couple of years now.  I moved to be closer to family and friends and have really fallen in love with the town.  Having grown up in Ohio, and gone to school in Cleveland, it’s actually quite a shock to finally be living in the back yard of the Pittsburgh Steelers, especially on Sundays when crowd noise flows through the neighborhood and you’re suffering traffic and parking issues!  Being a Cleveland Browns really couldn’t be any harder!  I hang my hat in the Mexican War Streets part of town and have pretty much everything I need within a short walk of my home.  As a result I’ve not really as familiar with the entire area as I would like.

One of my goals with this little site will be to highlight some of the more interesting places I’ve decided to uncover in the area.  I’m getting better at bringing the camera along, and getting much better at deliberately making the effort to go out and shoot something.  In addition to sharing the pictures I thought it might be interesting to also document the locations.  You never know, maybe a visitor to the ‘Burgh will stumble onto the site and want to visit some of the same places?  One idea that I thought would be interesting would be to share these locations on Google Earth or Maps? I think I’ll spend some time figuring out how to do all this and add a section to the site.  If I’m lucky maybe some of you can fill me in on spots that I haven’t yet discovered or better yet some tips on how to share the information?

Anyway, here is another handheld HDR from my recent trip down to the Waterfront:
