PITTSBURGH: THRU THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA


Our "Director of Pittsburgh Photography", Gary Gayda, was out and about on the South Side, gathering images of that ever-growing source of entertainment spots and other, less-important retail establishments.

All kidding aside, the development that has taken place on the South Side has truly been terrific, along with other major uplifts in areas such as Homestead and of course, the North Shore. Pittsburgh is far from being a perfect town. We still have many areas that are completely depressed because of the collapse of the steel industry. But if nothing else, successful developments such as Homestead's "Riverfront" show that these areas can become jewels in their own right. All it takes is a good plan and lots and lots and lots of cash.

As is always the case, Gary Gayda's pictures are available for sale directly from our photographer. Contact Gary at GMGayda@yahoo.com and tell him the picture name and number and what size you are interested in. Gary will get back to you posthaste.

So without further delay here are today's images of the city on our Tuesday feature PITTSBURGH: THRU THE LENS OF GARY GAYDA....
