There's no place like Pittsburgh, and there's no photographer like PhotoLith!

I'd be a damned liar if I said I wasn't equally impressed and jealous.

Well I probably wouldn't be living in pittsburgh if it weren't for my visit to STL like 4 years ago where I first fell in love with bricks and mid western grunge.

I use a nikon d700 but it's not the camera that takes the photos it's the photographer. And thank you.

Stunning work! I keep imagining a wind suddenly kicking up in the picture with the book on the floor and turning those pages to some secret text.

True, kinda. The V1 will never be a D700 and you probably don't use it as your mainstay for work.
