24 Photos


WQED Pittsburgh posted a link on their Facebook page today: 24 Photos of Pittsburgh that Make You Want to Move There (http://www.movoto.com/blog/opinions/photos-of-pittsburgh/). The photos are beautiful. And they do make me wonder why I ever left.

But then I see the photo of the people in Steelers jerseys at a bar and the reason why I left hits me like bricks: rebellion against the avid, suffocating sports culture. When I met my friends in Ohio, some didn’t like Pittsburgh because of the Steelers. Okay, that’s understandable when you’re a Cleveland fan. But, once again, there’s a whole city to love, but all anyone focuses on is the sports.

I went through my own personal collection of 24 photos to find something worth loving and this is what I found:

True, a lot of these are of the same image: the city itself. For some reason, I never tire of taking photos of the Pittsburgh skyline. But the fact that I have so many photos of the same thing tells me I need to dig a little deeper. Where should my next adventure be?
