Some time ago, during the 2020 lockdowns, it seemed that everywhere I visited had turned into a strange ghost town version of itself...and that includes this expansive view of the city of Pittsburgh, which at the time had a drab, melancholy feel to it despite how sunny it really was that day. So...over the past several years, I have come and gone from this photograph, trying my best to turn it from a near-empty cityscape, into something truly alive and colorful. To that end, I'd taken inspiration from the works of Japanese creators such as Hayao Miyazaki in reimagining the city not as it was, but as I imagined it; a vibrant and colorful wonderland of possibility, bright and flanked by hand-painted sakura blossoms beneath the most cerulean of skies, dappled by the warm rays of a springtime sun. I hope I managed to do the image in my mind justice!
