Some pics from Pittsburgh's South Side.

Was out practicing with the new Nikon. No real theme to this thread, just pics of the South Side.

Have you ever been to Staunton, VA? Talk about powerlines, whoa! This is nothing. I have to wonder if they don't purposely keep them above ground there though to keep the kind of antique charm they add. Helps give the place a whole 1800s feel, which would be consistent with the rest of the city. Whether that's the reasoning here though, probably not but who knows.

As for Pittsburgh, I just love those hills!

With the many financial problems the city has, burying powerlines is about 10,000th on the list of priorities.

Looking at pictures of Pittsburgh, you'd never know it's in PA.
I know landscape shapes certain cities, but zoning does as well.
Most metros in the northeast have that big look to them.
But this looks like Dante's Peak or the small town in the movie Outbreak.
