Been a while since I’ve posted anything due to the BS health issues I’m dealing with. I want to thank everyone for all their well wishes and kind words. I’ll hopefully be getting some relief soon.
Today just a quick post as I’m running late. This is a shot from under the 6th Street (Roberto Clemente) bridge that I took a few weeks ago. I wanted to try it out in Black and White and I’m pretty happy with the results.
Have a great day everyone!
Baseball season is almost officially here in the Burgh! As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, it is kind of difficult to get really excited about our home team Pirates after the seasons they’ve had for the last 20 years, but they’re still my home team! Here’s a quick post for Saturday of the Roberto Clemente Statue outside of PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
Have a Great Weekend Everyone!
Roberto Clemente played 18 seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1955 through 1972. He was awarded the National League (NL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in 1966. He was on the NL All-Star team 15 times, received 12 Gold Glove Awards, and led the NL in batting average four times. He died in a plane crash December 31, 1972, while en route to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.
I seem to be stuck on a “North Shore” kick lately, and this will be my last post from that area of the Burgh for a while. After today, time to change things up a bit. This was from my solo photo walk a little over a week ago when I was heading back towards PNC Park and eventually to the T and home.
The weather was awesome. The “River walk” seemed to be virtually empty of people by now. It was amazing how quiet it was. How alone with the city I felt. It was pretty cool, yet a bit creepy too. Then again, when I saw this and was setting up the shot, I was thinking this is gonna “Rock”! I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Have a great Thursday everyone! Thanks for stopping by.
An early spring? Well, I don’t know about that. The weather the last few days has felt a lot more like Summer! Crazy warm weather we’ve been having in the Burgh this week. I know it can’t last, but I can still hope! It’s got me motivated to get out and walk around the city as often as I can.
Today’s shot is from the North Shore of Pittsburgh where we’ve all seen a very similar shot from many photographers. What grabbed me this time and made me take the shot was the reflection of the sun as it was starting to set off of the K&L Gates building across the river. Have a great Wednesday everyone!
Feeling a little under the weather the last couple days, so a quick post and shot for Tuesday. This is the Pittsburgh River Safety Center located on the North Shore at PNC Park next to the Clemente Bridge, which you can see behind it. This is where the Pittsburgh River Rescue is based.
I shot this while walking on the North Shore about a week ago. The warm weather we’ve been having in the Burgh is amazing! I have a feeling there will be a lot of boats on the river early this year.
Have a great Tuesday!
A quick weekend post for this Saturday. I shot this while on a solo photowalk last week from the North Shore of Pittsburgh. It was such a gorgeous day, I keep finding myself back in the folder containing the 300+ shots I took! You can see the Allegheny River on the left coming from under the Fort Duquesne Bridge and the Monongahela River on the right coming from under the Fort Pitt Bridge and where this is shot from is where they converge to become the beginning of the Ohio River.
Heading out in a few minutes hoping for a good sunrise shot on this frigid 22 degree morning. Have a terrific weekend everyone!
