Here’s another photo from my most recent photo walk with my Dad and Brook Ward. This is a tricky bridge to photograph at night. It’s easy for the lights on the bridge to get blown out and the yellowish, red lights that are used on the bridge cause the entire scene to be red. I managed to tone it back with color correction options in Photoshop, but I’m not entirely pleased with the end result. Not many new photos for me to share. I’m completely sick of winter and really don’t have much motivation to weather the cold.
This was taken on a recent photo walk with my Dad and Brook Ward on a very cold evening a few weeks ago. Pittsburgh has many overpasses and underpasses because of the many bridges. The overpass above is the beginning of the Fort Duquesne Bridge. The bridge is interesting because its double layered; meaning, the top four lanes of the bridge lead away from the city while the four lanes underneath lead into the city. Everyone driving in the right lane, needs to merge to the left lane and vice versa. One can always tell which drivers are not from Pittsburgh or that don’t drive in the city very often… It can cause massive backups.
I really need to start going through my archives and posting some of my older images. I don’t normally do it. In fact, I wasn’t for tonight’s post, but it’s so cold in Pittsburgh, I needed a tropical photo to warm me up! This was taken from our trip to Punta Cana in 2012. Jacquie and I got up extra early for sunrise on our last two days in the Dominican. It was definitely worth getting up for! Tap on the image to view large, the water has a lot of sharp detail in it that will warm you up if you’re living somewhere cold like me!
This was the final photo that I took a few weeks back with my Dad and Brook Ward. It was so cold that night that we didn’t end up taking photos for very long. I’ve always wanted to take this photo, but never remembered in the past while taking pictures on the North Shore. Because of the weather, it was perfect to try it out since not many people were around to get in the way of the shot. It’s also a nice little reminder that Spring is almost here.
I joined my Dad and Brook Ward for a little photo walk on the North Shore after work last Wednesday. I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be as cold as it was and was pleasantly surprised when the Allegheny River was frozen solid. We weren’t out very long because of the cold temperatures but I think we came home with some nice images.
Last winter in Pittsburgh was unbearable. We had countless days where temperatures were in the single digits or at zero. Because of that, I didn’t make out much to take photos during winter last year. However, I did hull my camera into the city on my way into work two times last January. It was so awful down by the river, I could only be out there for about ten minutes before my hands and feet got too cold. On the bright side, it was really awesome seeing the river completely still from being frozen over.
