Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #216 – Urban Environments

We’re going ‘urban’ for the photo challenge this week…looking for shots of cities or towns where
you live or have visited.  That means it’s hometown Pittsburgh for me…

Pittsburgh is known for its bridges.
and the two rivers that run thru it…the Allegheny and the Monongahela which run together at the Point and form the Ohio River.

Sports are also a big part of the Pittsburgh culture and two of the local teams have their homes
right there on the shore of the Allegheny River.

The Monongahela River is on the other side of the Point. There you can catch a ride on the Duquesne Incline taking you up to Mt. Washington.

The Strip District borders downtown Pittsburgh where you can find a variety of ethnic grocers, street vendors, produce shops and plenty of places to eat…
and of course plenty of Steelers fans.

And no visit to the Strip is complete without a stop at Primanti’s for one of Pittsburgh’s all time favorite sandwiches.

Thanks to Sofia for the theme for the photo challenge this week.

  1. Some very fond memories from back in my college days I must admit, altho it’s hard to believe I can remember that long ago! A great city, and a great sports town. Some excellent images of terrific highlights. But what on earth is in that sandwich?!??!

    • Hahaha…so the trademark of the sandwich is that it has french fries and cole slaw right on it instead of on the side. There’s a variety of options, corned beef, roast beef, capicola, egg, ham, etc…all good! Glad I could stir some happy memories for you Tina. 🙂
