We're back from Thanksgiving weekend in Pittsburgh. I took about 700 photos walking the dog around the neighborhoods around my father-in-law's house in the South Side Slopes, as well as a trip I took over to Homestead, Braddock, and McKeesport. I'm trying to write about my thoughts visiting this region where the decline of the steel industry turned so many communities into ghost towns, but I'm afraid everything I write turns into a damn essay and no one wants to read an essay on a blog. I will try to have something up later this week.

But the pictures! Those are easier. Pittsburgh is such a beautiful city.
