PITTSBURGH: THROUGH THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA

The City of Pittsburgh has always been one of the busiest inland ports in the world and in addition it's also become known over the years as "The City of Bridges" too.

This week we're going to take another look at Pittsburgh's water front area and take in the visit of a famous paddle wheeler, "The Delta Queen". It's all through the camera of our ace photographer, Mt. Washington's own Gary Gayda.

As is always the case, you can purchase prints directly from Gary by emailing him at GMGmailto:GMGayda@yahoo.com. Just specify the picture number and size that you're interested in and Gary will get back to you.

So without further adieu, here now is this week's installment of our favorite weekly feature: PITTSBURGH: THROUGH THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA.
