The Architecture of Downtown Pittsburgh

in photography •  last year

1 PPG Place (Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company), the largest in a series of six PPG buildings around the city.

The architecture of Pittsburgh is quite beautiful. I'm in town for a conference (more on that later this week), and took a day with mktom79 to explore the city. It's very interesting, and it's rare to see two buildings in the same frame that look even remotely similar. I've tried to include basic information about the building below each photo, and will update the missing ones when I have time in the near future.

All photos are taken with my LGV20 phone, and I'm very pleased with the quality. Virtually no editing (other than rotation and minor exposure adjustments) on any of these. Phone features two rear lenses, a 16mp f1.8 lens (78 degrees) and an 8mp wide angle, f2.4 (135 degrees). This is my first go 'round with it. Enjoy!

My rental for the week.

And finally, the Pittsburgh Skyline from Mount Washington on Grandview Ave, just a minutes walk up the street from where I stayed.
