    By the way mrodgers - I like to do trailrunning up in McConnell Mill's park - it's also very nice to shoot landscapes there too - little closer to Pittsburgh, but toward you up in the country ;-)

    Come on people! Anyone? Anyone at all?
    I know there are some Pittsburgh peeps out there who'd want to get together...or even people semi-close to the area who'd come in for a meet up.

    I'm game. Saturday or Sunday mornings are usually good for me. Any thoughts? There's the usual tourist opps (Mt. Washington, etc.), but there's also plenty of good street or urban shots with all the ethnic neighborhoods or industry areas.

    No time to go on an outing for myself with 2 kids that still "like" mom and dad. Maybe once they hit the teenage years and can't stand to even look at us, let alone be seen at the Pittsburgh Zoo as we were today, I'll be able to go off and do something for myself, hehehe :mrgreen:

    I was quite disappointed in the Pittsburgh Zoo. Haven't been there since I was probably 10 myself. Well, the kids had fun and that's what matters. I was hoping to use the camera, but really couldn't see anything interesting. Lion tails peaking out from behind the rocks they were hiding behind, occasionally seeing the young gorilla's heads pop up from behind the big log where they were playing..... Nothing is in view there....

    Saturday or Sunday mornings are good for me, too. I like the idea of the urban shots. Let's see if I can drum up some more interest and then we'll set a date.

    Sorry you had a bad outing. I've had an outing last fall that was great - lots of decent shots of the animals. I even had a few of the polar bears swimming above me while I was in that glass tube.

    I also have several young ones - one 3 and one 5 - so my weekends tend to be busier than when I had a social life.:wink:

    Pete - nice shots on your gallery. Beside the obvious shots of Pittsburgh area (from Mount Washington of the Golden Triangle, downtown shots of PPG, Point State Park, the sports venues, etc.,), there's a lot of great neighborhoods. Oakland/Squirrel Hill/Shadyside have plenty of urban and architecture shots - also plenty of people, so if you're looking for urban portraits. The rivers and particularly all the bridges are great subjects. Other neighborhoods include Bloomfield (Italian), Lawrenceville or Troy Hill(Slovak), Polish Hill (self-described), Squirrel Hill (Jewish), etc.

    If you're a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, there's Fallingwater and another of his houses out in the Ohiopyle/Ligonier area - about an hour east of the city.
