In with the new out with the old, seems to be the story when it comes to a lot of the buildings in the city of Pittsburgh. Todays photos are of the Saks Fifth Avenue Store which is currently being razed to make way for a 585 space parking garage and 22,000 square feet of retail shops. Saks was open for business in Pittsburgh for for some 60 years before closing its doors in 2012.
Today’s photo comes from the civil war reenactment at Old Bedford Village. If you haven’t noticed I really like the reenactments. This gentleman was watching the streets in town while guarding over the local jail house.
The intense look on his face just really caught my eye and the decision to go black and white was simple.
Hope you enjoy. And tomorrow I will be attending an old western reenactment, so get ready for some cowboys.
Hockey night in Pittsburgh. Caught these fans headed to the game.
Today we have a simple portrait of a couple of quacks on the edge. I caught these guys in the fountain at Point State Park in Pittsburgh.
This is a shot of the fountain at Point State park in Pittsburgh. As I was walking towards the bride to cross I saw the sunset reflecting in the water and thought it might make an interesting composition.
What do you think?
Tonight when I got off work I went for my usual walk in the city but tonight I decided to head to Point State Park to photograph the fountain and found a new place to photograph the sunset.
Maybe next time I’ll spend a little more time on the fountain.
So I was on my walk in the city and in the distance I could swear that I heard bagpipes playing. Not thinking much about it I continued on with my walk and from time to time I would hear the faint sound of the bagpipes. So as they say curiosity got the best of me and I started to follow the sound, the closer I got the more distinct the sound got and then out of no where I found this young lady standing on the street playing her bagpipes.
You just never know what you’re going to see or hear in the city.
After walking nearly 4 miles in the city tonight I was just about to call it a night when I decided to take a couple of cars on the Boulevard of the Allies in Pittsburgh. I wanted to show the speed and still capture the city lights.
What do you think?
Today we go back to Pittsburgh for a quick shot from Market Square. The sun was setting for the evening and I was running out of light for my handheld photos. But as I always say sometimes you just have to look up to find what you’re looking for.
