Full moon over Station Square

Almost made it to the Duquesne Incline but, not quite…


So, for those of you who have not had the pleasure of business travel, let me tell you that this is NOT the best way to go somewhere for photography opportunities!  While we had a successful business trip, I was disappointed that I didn’t get many chances to try to capture more of Pittsburgh while there.  One evening after a full day of working with our customer, we tried to make a trip to the Duquesne Incline.  You see the little blue lights going up Mount Washington in the distance?  That’s it but, this is as close as I got.

Station Square is a shopping complex across the Monongahela River from downtown Pittsburgh on the land that was previously the  Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Station.  You can see the railroad tracks running in front of the buildings here.  These are still in use and we saw a freight train pass by as we were eating dinner.

Unfortunately, the group was too tired to go up the incline by the time we got done with dinner so, I guess I will hope to try again the next time.  From what I can see, this is the ideal spot to see downtown Pittsburgh from.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
