Thank you.

BTW, I am close to having enough money for a Panasonic M4/3 camera (want the upcoming GF2). Will have it before the end of the year.

Great updates. That building on Fifth Avenue, was that a brewery at one point? It reminds me of some of our old breweries here in Columbus along Front Street in the Brewery District.

These are the last until later this month when I go back up to Pittsburgh for a summer class. As of right now I have $500 saved up on Amazon (thanks to surveys) towards the oncoming Panasonic GF2.

I am back in the city until Aug 3rd. Flew from Philly to Pittsburgh via Southwest, this is some of what I saw:

An airport somewhere a little bit after takeoff:

Great pictures! Pittsburgh certainly has interesting geography and architecture to it. One of my favorite places is the area between Oakland and Schenley Park, at the end of Bouquet St, where there is a sudden drop-off and a valley with houses in it. Really stunning view, I remember wanting to get a place down there when I was living in Pittsburgh.
