"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

St. Paul Cathedral at Night- Pittsburgh PA

Oakland section of Pittsburgh. Looked like Europe to me. I was surprised to see it so bright as I guess I haven’t driven this route at night lately.

After the poetry reading at Pitt,  I was driving by last Thursday night and noticed the illuminated facade so drove around the block and photographed the cathedral at night.

The building history is available here.  The date of the building on their website is 1906.
