I've been getting a bit of stick over my representation of Pittsburgh......... nothing wrong with my representation of Pittsburgh surely ?......... come on I'm a photojournalist....... I'm interested in people............ all people....... Maybe especially people others might not deem to notice ..............

Anyway my friend is right Pittsburgh is a fab city ...... with great people as I've been showing ........... and amazing architecture and geography which she feels I've been neglecting ........... it really is a city of bridges and water ........... So its fair enough for her to request a classic view of the City of Bridges I guess.

To shoot this I parked the Yellow Beast Car under a serious no parking sign at the entrance to the tunnel at the end of the bridge ......... in a stopping place reserved for cops........ lets face it this is not normally a wise move ......... but I thought Im gonna miss the light if I don't park right now ....... so lets risk it............

While shooting this I had a strong sense of deja vu .......... Last time I was in Pittsburgh I was driving through on the way to DC in the Red Beast Car for some reason ......... and I stopped on another bridge to shoot cos of the amazing view.

This time Im on a higher bridge further back than before ........ but whichever bridge it all remains such an irresistible view for a photographer......... so much so that I remember the car was illegally parked at the end of the bridge that last time too.......... :-))........ Luckily the Pittsburgh cops seem reasonably laid back about this stuff....... on neither occasion did I even get a ticket........ yeah Pittsburgh its a great place .......... :-)) XXXXXXXXX
