Sepia Scenes - Random Ride


A while ago, Patti and I were passing through the Steel City, Pittsburgh. Since Sepia Scenes seems to add a soft monochrome that enhances older pictures, I add this random mix of scenery.

I believe this to be the Fort Pitt Bridge (I-279 North) passing the late (not) lamented Thee Rivers Stadium. The cables support the bridge roadway. An eclectic mix of subjects, topped off by the driver's profile. Odd it seems to see me in shadowy pose, it is like a Hitchcock cameo in his films - the signature.

The soft sepia seems to soften the view while the driver seems oblivious to the steel city sights as he peers straight ahead...See sepia in many iterations at Mary's site!

What a fascinating picture, Ralph. Not only have you captured a Hitchcockian (yes!!) pose, but the cables of the bridge and a cliffside building are captured in the mirror in the opposite corner. Nicely done.

a very interesting photo, with lots of interesting components. The cable looks great in sepia. It seems to be the most dominate feature to me.

ha! I didn't notice the profile until you mentioned it.

The capture in the mirror is great. One has to look at this shot for a while because there is lots to see.

I think structures with clean lines such as this look great in monochrome, Ralph.
