Thursday during G20. There was not as much going on downtown as I hoped, but in other parts of the city, there was major drama. In Lawrencville, mass mob of people clashed with police, elsewhere businesses got windows busted. Here in Oakland, on Pitt's campus at around midnight, there was a riot and police threw teargas (I was not there, just what I heard). Also, Obama's motorcade held up the bus I was on for 15-20 minutes in downtown.

And this morning, as I was trying to get to the only class that I had (Spanish, ruined my potential 4 day weekend), there was a crowd of people walking down 5th Ave towards downtown.

We begin with photos of downtown, without protesters. Streets were empty and some businesses were closed and boarded up:

Just admiring the architecture:

The three T subway stations were closed, trains only came into downtown as far as First Ave Station (this is Gateway Plaza):
[IMG]http://i36.************/160wzmo.jpg[/IMG]

Now, the protests. I saw two, one for Tibet's freedom from China, and one for the legalization of Weed.

I will go back to retake the night photos. I definitely need a new camera, this TZ3 is just not good enough at night.

Anyways, these are taken from the walkway in the North Shore:

So yesterday I took the 41E bus up to Mt. Washington to see its spectacular view. It was rainy/cloudy, so will be going back on a sunnier day and at dusk on another day.

The bus stop:

So I went out again with intentions of going back to Mt. Washington but didn't. Instead I walked up Arlington Ave into Allentown, then rode the light rail which runs along it back into downtown.

Evening sets in as I wait for the light rail in Allentown:

Homes in the Hills:
[IMG]http://i36.************/23t4mfa.jpg[/IMG]

Light rail tracks on Arlington Ave. the Trolley line is the 52 Allentown, slated to be renamed the "Brown Line". This route serves a vital link to this community since in the winter snow and ice can make this section of the city inaccessible to cars and the bus routes that also run on this street. It only runs a few times during the morning and evening rush hours though.

Nice pictures so far.

Your camera seems sufficient for night pictures to me. Mine can't take pictures that crisp unless I use a tripod, and even then it can be fuzzy.

It's really not. Night photos look okay at the small sizes I post them, but go any larger and the noise shows. I really can't wait until next year when a lot of new compacts with better sensors finally arrive.

So today was Pitt Make a Difference Day where students in groups go out and help out the city. I am part of Focus, a group mainly to help African American students get adjusted into the university. We were supposed to pick up trash on a trail that leads into downtown and beyond, but before we could even get there, our bus gets stuck on a small street with a 180 degree turn.

This was taken from inside the bus and it was raining:

Also, I had some more city photos, including some of the North Shore from last month, but they got deleted so I need to go re-take them.
