This shot has been done by dozens, if not hundreds of Pittsburgh photographers. Regardless, I wanted to capture my version of this popular spot.
This is taken from a pedestrian overpass that crosses 9 traffic lanes of US 279 looking back south towards the city. The overpass has a chain link fence along the entire bridge, but someone (not me) cut holes in it just for photographers to take this picture without the fencing getting in the way. Again, I’ll stress it wasn’t me. The holes were already there when we showed up. Below I included a behind the lens photo taken with my iPhone to show you our set up (my camera next to Brad’s camera). The hole in the fence was small, so we had to work close to each other.
