Empty Benches

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a terrific holiday and a Happy New Year! Tonight, I had the pleasure of taking my dizzy off balance self to a nice dinner with my wife. Afterwards, I convinced her (more like begged) to drive me up to Mt Washington so I could take a few shots of the City of Pittsburgh. I stumbled my way around and got a few decent shots that I will be sharing more of soon. It was a dreary, foggy, damp night in the Burgh and I...

The Gatehouse

Happy Thursday Everyone! The weekend is in sight! Today I’ve got a couple shots of The Gatehouse Building at Station Square in Pittsburgh. What’s really cool about this building are the unique looking stairs on the back of the building.
