Selling Out: Evergrey's PITTSBURGH 2007 Compilation

I have somewhat mixed feelings on these year-end compilation threads... but I figured perhaps some people would enjoy seeing some of these pics again... or for the first time. In past years, I photographed many places over the course of a year... but this year I didn't have much opportunity to leave my new home of Pittsburgh... so the pictures are exclusively of Pittsburgh. I got a new camera with a more powerful zoom in May.. so pictures from early in the year are of inferior quality... but are hopefully interesting nonetheless.

Without further ado... I offer you Pittsburgh:

I feel the same way. With those hills in Pittsburgh, I think I'd feel right at home. Such a fine city. Gorgeous photos, Evergrey, thanks.

Awesome. Every time somebody posts a good Pittsburgh thread, I doubt my first impression of that city.

Three words of advice: sell out young.

Love Pittsburgh. Love the photos.

The fact that I remember several of these must mean that I thought they were really good both then and now. Nice people shots too!

I never mind seeing your work a second time, or third or fourth for that matter. I 've had one of your photos as my desktop wallpaper for months now, and I'm not even from Pittsburgh.

I look forward to what you show us next year Evergrey.

I'm of the same opinion, and sometimes its too much overload. In spite of my feelings, there are a few of them I've checked out and felt the need to comment, of course yours in one of them.

I remember just about all of these photos, I thought I could have missed some of them in the past few months. Anyway it was good to see them again, and certainly worth reviewing again.
