Cruising the Allegheny

During my weekend meetup with Kay Gaensler and family a few months ago I arrived in Pittsburgh a few hours early and decided to roam around the city before they got into town. I shot this walking across the Rachel Carson Bridge, one of three twin bridges crossing the Allegheny to the North Shore area of Pittsburgh. The bridge in the foreground is the Andy Warhol bridge.

Thanks for stopping!

Grand Entrance

Another view inside the ornate Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg PA. This was a tricky shot as there were over 100 people crammed into the floor of the rotunda when we arrived. There were news crews filming what seemed to be an awards ceremony for Emergency responders in the area. There were chairs set up, microphones on stands and people elbowing me from both sides, reporters everywhere. So I made the best of a crowded situation and pointed my camera up at such an angle I could get the staircase and the dome in one shot and totally keep all the people out of the frame, I took a few snaps hoping one would be elbow nudge free.
