I went straight from DC to the city of Pittsburgh to both celebrate a friend's wedding (photos forthcoming!) and stay with a fellow MIT summer student from 2007. We're now both in grad school, ABD. Feels good, but there's still much to do. But yes---pictures!
And of course, my friend and host that weekend is a star photographer, meaning her pictures at Phipps were simply stunning. Check them out below and more here. She jokes that my friends had given me the idea that Pittsburgh was a post-industrial wasteland, and after only a few short days (and some of the hotcakes at Pamela's Diner on the Strip with popcorn samples at Pittsburgh Popcorn Company) -well, I liked Pittsburgh far better than I expected to, that's for sure. And I hope that I'll be able to return sometime soon, and visit some of the sights that I missed! (and eat more popcorn, obviously)
