Hard as it may be for some people to believe, the building that today dominates the Pittsburgh skyline, the elegant PPG Building, was once derided by a great number of people as being too "gaudy" or "austentatious". Fortunately their opinions did not hold sway as the PPG Building stands today as one of Pittsburgh's most beautiful examples of architecture. Our feature shot today shows this crown jewel of the Pittsburgh skyline framed by a beautiful cloudless sky.

As is always the case, if you would like tp order a copy of this picture send our Director of Pittsburgh Photography, Gary Gayda, an email at GMGayda@yahoo.com. Let him know the picture name and number and what size of a print you would like. Gary will get back with you posthaste.

By the way, thanks to all of you who sent emails about Gary's "Beer Wars" pictorial last week. We'll have tours throughout 2010 of some of your favorite Pittsburgh spots. Last week Gary took over 400 shots in preparation for "Beer Wars", but fortunately did not suffer a case of "trigger finger" as a result.
