Photos of the Week

This week my photos come from downtown Pittsburgh. The purpose of heading downtown was to take some shots with ordinary people as the focus. I haven’t taken many pictures with people in them yet (other than those I know). It didn’t occur to me until I got all the way downtown that the number of people out and about is significantly fewer on the weekends. I have been so used to living in bustling metropolises like Seattle and Philadelphia that I completely overlooked the fact that Pittsburghers just don’t live in downtown Pittsburgh like they do in the other cities I’ve lived in. Aside from business days and sports events, downtown Pittsburgh is pretty drab. Most of the activity occurs in the smaller more unique neighborhoods spread out in the surrounding areas. Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, Oakland, and others. I’ll head to one of those next time I work up the courage to stick my camera into strangers’ faces. Until then here are more people less photos. Enjoy!
