Shoot to Thrill: A Tour of Pittsburgh in Lomographs

After a recent business trip to our Pittsburgh office, our pal Jeff from Lomography sent us a batch of stunning Lomo photographs taken during his trip. Through the plastic lens of the delightful Diana Mini, Jeff captured snippets of city sights, leaving our staff bamboozled as we tried to decipher the what and wheres of each picture.

If you’re familiar with the ‘Burgh, take a peek at these shots and see if you can guess the landmarks and locations of each photo, then check your answers with the key at the bottom of the post!

Got your guesses? Compare them to the answers, below!

1. Our favorite ketchup-o-saurus near Market Square
2. CALL wall on Fifth in Uptown
3. Abandoned house in Uptown
4. Pittsburgh’s famous robot sculpture, “Arch,” on the edge of Downtown
5. Andy Warhol Bridge
6. Such Gothic heights in Downtown
7. Up, up, and up PPG Place
8. View from the top of the Cathedral of Learning
9. Reflections on architecture, Cathedral of Learning

“The first thing I noticed about Pittsburgh was the epic architecture,” Jeff said of his trip. “I love photographing buildings, so there was a wealth of subject matter!”

About Chris

Every day, Chris gets one to three scoops closer to his dream of an ice cream-only diet. If he’s not indulging his sweet tooth, Chris is using his child-like energy levels to play rubber snake pranks, converse with countless puns, and capture the world in photos as he walks. If you aspire to a perfect Pittsburgh accent or have a passion for periodicals, he would love to talk over afternoon coffee.
