About the Book
Colors Of Pittsburgh: Downtown and The Strip District unfolds as a journey up from the Allegheny River into the bustling and beautiful city that has emerged from a series of renaissances starting back in the 1940s... and then into the adjacent Strip District. Minimal text establishes the context for each of the chapters as well as some historic and other interesting insights into the communities. In 108 pages 162 photos are featured.
In 2016, I launched a creative experiment in publishing a series of "Colors Of..." photo books with images I've gathered over the last several years. This bookstore features the fruits of the effort to date. Enjoy and share with fans of photography, Pittsburgh and, especially, brilliant color. These make great, one-of-a-kind gifts for friends, family and professional associates. The five books featured here include: • Colors of Pittsburgh: North Shore & North Side • Colors of Pittsburgh: Downtown & The Strip District • Colors of Nature: Nature and Man Embracing Nature • A Year of Seeing & Being: Favorite Photographs of 2017 • A Year of Seeing & Being 2: Favorite Photographs of 2018 Background: My 39-year career in communications evolved from media support in universities... to commercial and public television production... to crafting marketing, PR and fund raising solutions. In 2016 I retired and focused on my photography and began publishing books of my work.
