Around Pittsburgh you can't swing a roadkill groundhog and not accidentally hurl it off a bridge. No other region in the world has more bridges than what we've got. I pity the fool that lives here and suffers from gephyrophobia. Isn't it wonderful how medical science has a name for everything? It's like a cornucopia of prognosis-es for ailments that have no cure.
Here we're beneath the Liberty Bridge, linking downtown to the south hills. I took this picture with a disposable Kodak camera. Ever since I left my auxillary camera in a train station in Italy I've taken up the habit of keeping a disposable Kodak in my pocket. It comes in handy. And yes, I only shoot Kodak film. The reason? They actually answer my emails when I bitch about their products. Fuji could give a damn, and Ilford...I had a bad experience once with their paper and they're on my short shit list. Only Kodak film, paper, and I LOVE their printers!!! Plus, I only use Kodak processing, especially for the B&W Pro film. Takes forever to get back, but well worth it.
I realize that using a disposable camera is kind of cheesy, but I don't care.

Actually it's a good idea, especially since they have FLASH on them now. My Treo 700 does NOT have flash, so it's a pain in the bars when I want to take a pic. At some point I'll be posting some dark pics from the closing party of lesbian club.
