Framing Pittsburgh


The more time I spend in Pittsburgh the more I am of the opinion that the Steel City is one of the most photogenic towns in the country. How high on my list is it? I would include it in my top three, with Boston, 2, and San Francisco, number one.  Two of my favorite vantage points are on Mount Washington and from the window of a Just Ducky Tours duck boat.

The shot above of downtown Pittsburgh was taken through a window in the Monongahela Incline toll house on Mount Washington. The shot below was also taken atop Mount Washington. The city has some great lines and patterns. Please see below for more photos and text.

I shot this from a Just Ducky Tours  boat in the Ohio River about an hour before sunset.

By the way, if you are looking for a great way to tour Pittsburgh both by land and river, I would highly recommend Just Ducky Tours. Our tour guides were very friendly and entertaining and it is very fun way to photograph the city.

Thanks so much for spending time at my blog today.

    Great gallery! Pittsburgh is also one of my favorite cities. I have literally 1000’s of photographs from the city I was born in!

      I am envious. I only learned of Pittsburgh’s greatness in the last 10 years or so. I am a big baseball fan so I love PNC park. Good Luck to the Pirates, I am rooting for them in the playoffs as my Nats did not do as well this year.

      Have you ever been to the Phipps Conservatory gardens? Is that a good place for photos. Want to go there on my next trip.
