PITTSBURGH: THROUGH THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA



Today we have a double treat in store for you. In the first shot titled, "Flowers On Shore" we have a very unusual shot of Pittsburgh taken from the North Shore and shot across the Allegheny. There, our intrepid photographer, Gary Gayda, has discovered a flower patch to enhance the foreground of this spectacular shot. The span featured in this picture is the Ninth Street Bridge, now also known as the "Rachel Carson Bridge".

The second shot features some photographic wizardry as our photographer is able to outline several Pittsburgh buildings with light during the middle of the night. Titled simply as "Outlines," this picture unveils a more subtle side of our city seen only while it sleeps.

If you'd like to order either of these prints or any past photo, simply email the artist directly at GMGayda@yahoo.com. Tell Gary the photo number along with the size you're interested in. He can get back to you either by email or phone if you leave your number.

So without further adieu here is this week's "twin bill of the Burgh" in PITTSBURGH:
THROUGH THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA.

The "Rachel Carson Bridge" is named after world renowned naturalist, Rachel Carson, a native Pittsburgher. Carson was born in 1907 in Springdale, 18 miles up the Allegheny.

NUMBER 13 .............................."OUTLINES"
