So yesterday I took the 41E bus up to Mt. Washington to see its spectacular view. It was rainy/cloudy, so will be going back on a sunnier day and at dusk on another day.

The bus stop:

So I went out again with intentions of going back to Mt. Washington but didn't. Instead I walked up Arlington Ave into Allentown, then rode the light rail which runs along it back into downtown.

Evening sets in as I wait for the light rail in Allentown:


Homes in the Hills:


Light rail tracks on Arlington Ave. the Trolley line is the 52 Allentown, slated to be renamed the "Brown Line". This route serves a vital link to this community since in the winter snow and ice can make this section of the city inaccessible to cars and the bus routes that also run on this street. It only runs a few times during the morning and evening rush hours though.




The skyline:





Looking back toward the Cathedral of Learning on Pitt's campus in Oakland:

So today was Pitt Make a Difference Day where students in groups go out and help out the city. I am part of Focus, a group mainly to help African American students get adjusted into the university. We were supposed to pick up trash on a trail that leads into downtown and beyond, but before we could even get there, our bus gets stuck on a small street with a 180 degree turn.







This was taken from inside the bus and it was raining:


Also, I had some more city photos, including some of the North Shore from last month, but they got deleted so I need to go re-take them.

Went up to the neighborhood of Morningside to drop off some cloths in the GoodWill drop box:




Downtown as night begins to fall, will have to go back and get more:

So, my family has come to visit me since it is Family Weekend. We went to the Pitt vs Southern Florida University, we left in the 3rd quarter because they were all cold (and we knew Pitt was gonna win ). Game photos come later, now is the city.

Also, I bought my parents a Panasonic ZR1 (I have a Panasonic TZ3), so I tried it out. Some of these photos are from the ZR1:

So I rode the 41E bus up to Mt. Washington again, this time took my new camera, a Panasonic ZS3 which has a wider angle than my TZ3. The unfortunate thing is that on some of the wide angle shots, there is blur on the edges.

Wonderful updates

Was it a cold night when you took those photos? That may have had something to do with the blur on the edges of your photographs. My camera, when it's anywhere around 35º or colder, the shutter doesn't work correctly, and it creates a blurring effect around the edges. I solved the problem by simply keeping my camera tucked in under my clothing, keeping it warm, until right before I take the shot.

Oh, and Hail to Pitt!

Yeah, it was cold. Probably why the blur.
