Pittsburgh: Under a Blood Moon

Here's a random collection of skyline and cityscape photos from August... I was going to append them to my recent neighborhood tour... but figured it would make that thread too long (and they might never get viewed). So at the risk of diffusing interest in my Pittsburgh threads... I humbly offer the following photos for your viewing pleasure.

These are from the West End Overlook... I started taking photos... after a few minutes I noticed a remarkable blood moon rising over the skyline... how serendipitous!

before the moonrise

Dang it Evergrey, I am so sick of your beautiful photos of such an awesome city! And I've only been a member here for a month

Kudos dude

Love the street shots too. Looking for people I may recognize, but no such luck this time.

Great thread! I wish they would get that "UPMC" off US Steel though. I think it really detracts from the power of that building. Can you imagine putting something like that on the Seagram Building?

Pittsburgh is such an attractive city, and your work with the camera only makes it look more so. Another great thread, Evergrey!

Pittsburgh's downtown has really changed for the better! I love the juxtaposition of the buildings, the hills and the moon. Awesome pictures!

Luckily I took a quick look at these just before some of them disappeared. Excellent shots!
