The Pittsburgh Project

Exploring life in my beloved home town

I was raised in Pittsburgh, and no matter where I have lived, it has always been home for me. I try to visit at least once a year. Pittsburgh is known for its history as a steel producing industrial town, as well as for the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers that meet at the Point to form the Ohio. And of course, our sports teams: the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates. 

It has gone through quite a transformation since the mills started closing in the years before and after I graduated college in 1977. Today it is a rich and vibrant area, brimming with history, diversity, and wonderful places to explore. The goal of this project is to showcase stories through photo essays of lesser known topics that reflect this spirit. I find it one of the more interesting cities in the USA. And that is not just because I am biased! Well maybe a little.
