Nice pictures. I am noticing an improvement in your picture-taking style since you moved out there. You're doing a nice job of giving a perspective on the area.

Wow, great job Jay, Pittsburgh is really nice, despite being sometimes run down and the gloomy gritty winter weather she has beautiful vistas, slopes that only Frisco can match, a lot of infrastructures, legacy of her industrial era I assume, she has cute homes and seems to be well planned differently from the hideous sprawl of the West young cities, not to mention the setting, with the 3 rivers, the countryside nearby, simply gorgeous.

The pictures well make one get the identity of this city, european, modern, industrial, blue-collar.

Great photos. Pittsburg looks to be impressive.

I really like american cities: compared to British cities, they seem so large in scale. I love the thrill of the high-rise cityscape.

Well, the city has been loosing population for a while, but there are plenty of neighborhoods that bustle with activity including Oakland, Downtown, and Squirrel Hill. And obviously I tend to shy away from capturing to many people in my photos, I should change that.
