Built in 1870 – Oldest Continuously Operating Incline

Could be a shot for contrast as well. A spot of  color on a dull day. The Monongahela Incline. View from West Carson Street.


Light Up Night 2011 Pittsburgh PA

On the way home from school I wound around and up Sycamore Street to Mount Washington.  Parked and pulled out the sweater and blazer in the back of the car and layered as best I could.  No tripod, no cable remote.  Took this with the Self-Timer and propped the camera on an iron fence on the Duquesne Incline platform.  Watched the sky grow dark.  Met people from Dallas, Las Vegas,  a couple of Pitt students  and New York City and photographed them with the light up night behind them. An Art Institute Special Effects major was shooting a time lapse exposure and we chatted.  Did I mention it was in the low thirties?  With a wind chill factor that made it seem really chilly.

A week ago we were in the Columbus Athletic Club bowling and preparing for the wedding celebration.  Didn’t feel like driving right home after school and had stayed late to get ready for next week.  An art room always needs attention.

Incline by Night Light

This is the Monongahela Incline by Station Square, just across Smithfield Bridge. Travels at 6 mph so hard to get it focused with the shutter open to allow enough light.

Pittsburgh Public Transportation has two inclines up to Mt Washington

Sunday night on the way home from Manchester Craftsmen's Guild Event.
