Barge on the Allegheny

Another moving still picture: a barge heads downstream past the Armstrong Cork Factory toward the Sixteenth Street Bridge.

Skyline and Sixteenth Street Bridge

From the shore of the Allegheny. The immensity of the U. S. Steel Tower is particularly obvious from this angle.

A March Thaw

The weather was warm enough to melt a good bit of the snow and ice, and prolonged rain helped fill the streams. Now the weather is turning briefly colder again, and we expect some snow tonight.

Your Downtown Panorama of the Day

This time without falling snow. The one above, made from eighteen separate photographs, is quite large (about 37 million pixels), so don’t click on it on a metered connection. It’s the largest stitched picture old Pa Pitt has made to date, but Hugin handled it perfectly and automatically. The picture below is a more manageable size.
