Views of downtown Pittsburgh from Mt. Washinton are one of the favorite things that Pittsburgh photographers and visitors like to photograph. Mt. Washington really provides absolutely incredible views of Pittsburgh, but for some reason, I haven’t visited Mt. Washington in years. Last week, on a whim, we decided to jump in the car and just drive to the Grandview St. overlook to watch the sunset. Here are a few photos from that evening, a combination of Samsung Galaxy S22 and Fujifilm XT-3 with 23 f/2 lens.
Color Park is an amazing place located right on the Jail Trail (Great Allegheny Passage), between Station Square and the South Side. An old industrial area near a railroad is covered in colorful graffiti, and anyone can contribute to the art. There is a great description of the project on the Secret Pittsburgh website – definitely check it out!

I’m like the proverbial shoemaker without shoes. I spend my time documenting other families’ lives, but rarely do I have the opportunity to photograph my own family. This is one of those rare times when everything came together – weather, free time, hanging out with the family, and having a camera in my hand.
