Look Up! The Peaks of the City, 2009 US Steel Tower and Presbyterian Church on Strawberry Way Pittsburgh has a mix of tall and short, gothic and modern, stone and steel in its skyline, and on a perfectly clear autumn day even minor details are enhanced by shadows. I typically enjoy photos of the contrast of gothic archictectural influence from the mid industrial age when buildings could have no undecorated spot with the streamlined ultra modern influence from the height of the steel era. Stylistic Contrast Look up and see the gargoyles staring down at you! Gingerbread and Gargoyles Sometimes a convergence of details comes together and simply provides a nice varied view. Ornate Old Church Roofs and Towers Medieval Battlements Two views of the same church, actually seen from the back on Oliver Avenue. And, finally, just an interesting facade.
