Saw this in the lobby of my hotel in Pittsburgh. Almost picked it up to dial out operator, instead took a few shots, it looked so retro and cool.
It seems like every time I visit Pittsburgh it rains or overcast. Can’t remember if I ever seen sun here. So as this week. It rained two days ago and it’s raining tonight.
Many of the recent photos posted are taken with iPhone. I still try to take photos with my other camera as well but most of the time can’t find time to pull those photos from it and process it. So much easier to do it straight from the phone, but at the same time quality of them might suffer. Oh well.
This photo was taken couple days before Christmas. We arrived in Pittsburgh on a rainy night and went straight to the Mt Washington to take a few photos of the downtown. You might recall one of the previous photos I took that night, it was posted here couple month back. In the foreground you can see the Mt Washington Incline, it takes you up from the river level all the way to the top of the mountain.
I have heard that Pittsburgh has less sunny days than Seattle. Everyone thinks that Seattle is pretty gloomy, where would it put Pittsburgh then? We were driving through Pittsburgh and I really wanted to get a shot of it. As you can guess, it was rainy and gloomy and not very pleasant outside. Also, it was right around midnight too. But if one wants to get a photo, one should get a photo, no matter what the outside conditions are out there, right?
So here you go, the first photo from that night. This one is definitely better viewed in higher resolution.
