So last night I had a meeting with the Pittsburgh Magazine, a local publication who has featured some of my work over the last year or so. I was chosen to be one of the photographers to work on an upcoming feature that will be in the annual City Guide, so I’m pretty excited for that! More details to come soon.
Anyways, after the meeting, I moseyed on downtown to see what the weather was like, hoping to get some skies over the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, PNC Park. I certainly was not disappointed. There were some storms that had moved into the area all around me (in fact, I found out it poured down rain at my house, just 5 miles from the city!), however there wasn’t a drop in the city. I found some free parking (difficult since there was a Pirates’ game going on) and hustled my way from the casino, past Heinz Field, past PNC Park and onto the Roberto Clemente Bridge. I couldn’t seem to shoot fast enough, as the skies were ever changing and I kept capturing bracket after bracket. It was a ton of fun to shoot and I knew that, even though I got home late, I wanted to make sure to get most of them processed so I could share them this morning. I hope you enjoy! The first one above is one of my favorites, taken right on the Clemente Bridge. For the second one, I simply took a few steps back and went a little wider on the zoom.
There was a single black cloud hanging right over the stadium…as there has been for the last 19 years when the Pirates have had a sub .500 record!
I loved the way that the sky transitioned from blue to red.
For this one I climbed up on the parking garage across the street, which afforded me a great view!
Taken just across the bridge, overlooking the Allegheny River.
And finally my other favorite from the night, with PNC Park all lit up under a cloudy sky.
Thanks for stopping by today everyone! See you all tomorrow.
