Factory Windows

A long row of windows on a fabricating shop, with a long row of houses on the other side of the street.

Abandoned storefront windows, a moment frozen in time.

Steel Town

Braddock is a borough of Pittsburgh where steel is still being made at USS ET Works.  It’s almost – but not quite – a ghost town, with a few people clinging to the community as it crumbles around them.  But there manages to still be beauty and life there.

Pittsburgh Sunset

I decided a while back to carry a cheap camera with me at all times, just in case I see something amazing.  The sunset was beautiful last night.

Pittsburgh’s North Shore

It ain’t your daddy’s North Side.

Even I am old enough (am I really that old?) to remember the tenement blocks, the prostitutes, the falling-down buildings.  But Duran Duran stopped in the Rosa Villa once, so it couldn’t have been that bad.  Jimmy was a good bartender – never made you wait.  This was back when co-workers socialized and even stayed out late without calling spouses.  Nobody seems to miss the old days, though.
