  • Urban Menagerie

    from $20.00

    On the 4th of July, 2014, some friends and I took it upon ourselves to go out and explore the city, and to watch the annual river racing festival, the Pittsburgh Regatta. Of course, being that I love taking photographs of practically anything I get near, I took this opportunity to snap some photographs of our fair city in as unusual a manner as I could, including this shot you see right here. This is the Fort Duquesne Bridge, mashed up against a backdrop of urban imagery. The Highmark Building can be seen in the background, with the rest forming a sort of mishmash between the old and new that so thoroughly defines what Pittsburgh is. The more I look at this, the more I realize that it's essentially Pittsburgh in a nutshell. The new, the old, the black, and the gold.

    from $20.00

    This is the Andy Warhol bridge, depicted in selective color. This photograph was taken during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, when the city was on lockdown and there was virtually no traffic. Don't worry, I practiced social distancing and didn't come near a soul while taking this! Still, it was haunting to see the city so...empty. Absolutely strange to be able to stand right on the center line of this bridge and not worry about cars or traffic...and to simply focus on the sights. It was wonderful to get some fresh air, on top of that! (This is the standard, non-bleeding version of the photograph, in which the gold color stays confined within the bridge itself. There is another version, where the golden color bleeds out from the bridge and into the sky)

  • W A R H O L - Color Bleed Version

    from $20.00

    This is the Andy Warhol bridge, depicted in a bleeding-color style of selective color. This photograph was taken during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, when the city was on lockdown and there was virtually no traffic. Don't worry, I practiced social distancing and didn't come near a soul while taking this! Still, it was haunting to see the city so...empty. Absolutely strange to be able to stand right on the center line of this bridge and not worry about cars or traffic...and to simply focus on the sights. It was wonderful to get some fresh air, on top of that! (This is the 'color bleed' version of the photograph, in which the golden color bleeds out from the bridge itself. There is another version, where the gold color is confined to only the bridge)

  • Washington

    from $20.00

    This photograph was taken of a statue of George Washington near the National Aviary, in a park along the north shore of Pittsburgh, PA. I was walking through the park outside of the Aviary, with my girl hand in hand, and we came across this statue, large and imposing. I pulled out my camera, as I so often do when I've got it with me, and snapped this shot. I can clearly remember I hoping it would turn out...and for the longest time, I'm not sure if it did. The photo needed a certain something, and it puzzled me for years. I liked the photo, but wanted to make it striking in some way. Drawing upon all I've learned in the past several years, I put forth my best effort, and wound up with this.
