So, my family has come to visit me since it is Family Weekend. We went to the Pitt vs Southern Florida University, we left in the 3rd quarter because they were all cold (and we knew Pitt was gonna win ). Game photos come later, now is the city.

Also, I bought my parents a Panasonic ZR1 (I have a Panasonic TZ3), so I tried it out. Some of these photos are from the ZR1:

Nice fall colors in Pittsburgh. Saw some of the highlights of that game and Pitt was in total control from the start- nice win for 'em.

I try to, but the photos still don't work out to well.

So I rode the 41E bus up to Mt. Washington again, this time took my new camera, a Panasonic ZS3 which has a wider angle than my TZ3. The unfortunate thing is that on some of the wide angle shots, there is blur on the edges.

I really like the natural setting of Pittsburgh. I remember watching barges come up the river at night, shining their spot lights in the light fog with the skyline in the background and the bridges lit up. It was magic.

Have you been to the Strip District? I wanted to go over there, but didn't get a chance. I spent most of the time on the South Side, which is a really cool neighborhood.

Yeah I've been through there but haven't really walked around. Will have to go do that soon.
