Gotham City | Pittsburgh, PA

Having recently returned from a visit home to Pittsburgh and just seeing The Dark Knight Rises, which was filmed in Pittsburgh, I felt this to be a good candidate for my first photo upload in several weeks. Sorry about being off the grid!

 

A few times each year, I take a trip home to the Pittsburgh, PA area to visit friends and family and usually end up spending a couple of days shooting the picturesque skyline of the city. For the first time in a few years, I shot from one of the most shot vantage points in the area, Mount Washington. There are several overlooks up there, high above the city, giving viewers a great view of the three rivers and downtown. Since it is shot by literally almost every visitor to the city, it’s tough to get a unique shot that hasn’t been replicated a gazillion times. I shot this one with my 8mm lens and really wanted to get the road in the lower right corner in the shot to give it some added depth.
