PITTSBURGH: THRU THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA

We return this week to our regularly-scheduled program, "Pittsburgh, Thru the Lens of Gary Gayda". This program was preempted last week by our unprecedented seven consecutive days of coverage of the "Blackened Gold Awards."

Now that life is back to normal, it's time to see what special views of Pittsburgh that Gary has in store for us. This week we have a unique perspective that we're titling, "Bridgerchange". We'll let Gary's photography do the rest of the talking.

By the way, tomorrow, we'll have the first of a three-part special on the G-20, as your intrepid reporter visits with three of the most powerful people in Pittsburgh in "G-20, Pittsburgh's Coming Out Party". Trust me, you won't want to miss this series beginning tomorrow!!!

Now, without further adieu, here's our favorite photographer, Gary Gayda, doing what he does best, taking great pictures of Pittsburgh!

ABOVE: Pittsburgh has long been known as the "City of Bridges" with 44 in all. Pittsburgh's bridges are painted gold, partly because of the "Golden Triangle" theme, partly because gold is one of the city's official colors and partly because gold bridges would look better than black bridges (although I still think that the hand rails or something should be painted black). I'd like to invite any artist reading this to submit a black and gold colorized version of one of Pittsburgh's all-golden bridges to let our readers decide what looks best! (Regretfully, I have no photoshop or artistic ability other than being a toner-stained wordsmith).
