This week Amy is looking for river shots and stories. Pittsburgh is known for it’s rivers.
Three in particular…the Monongahela on the left and the Allegheny on the right which come together at The Point where the fountain is to form the Ohio River.
Two of our professional sports teams, the Steelers and Pirates, play right on the river bank.
With rivers come bridges, and we certainly have more than our share.
The downtown bridges are all painted gold to tie in with the colors of the pro team uniforms. As the saying goes here, “Pittsburgh sports fans bleed black and gold” 🙂
The Clemente Bridge is usually the center of many of the downtown activities like charity races and bridge parties.
Both the bridges and the rivers add a nice touch to the city skylines.
Thanks to Amy for this week’s Lens Artists Challenge theme.
