This week I have a collection of simple photos that I took at the Three Rivers Arts Festival a few weeks ago. I love when this yearly festival comes to Pittsburgh because it is such a wonderful way to support local artists and walk away with some fabulous and unique pieces of art! There is an artist’s market (which to me is the interesting part) as well as many local music events in and around the city. Make sure you check it out next summer if you haven’t yet!
Once again I have a collection of photos from downtown Pittsburgh. Each time I explore a different few block of downtown, there is a unique quality that draws my attention. Here it was the buildings. Every where I looked I noticed something unique about one building that the others lacked. I love old architecture. Enjoy!
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!
