New Abandoned Sites and Upcoming Markets

In 2015 we photographed four new sites for Abandoned Pittsburgh: a fire-engine house in Point Breeze, a community center in Etna (now home of the ScareHouse), a high-rise office building in Braddock, and a rusted bridge and tunnel in Layton. We're always looking for more sites ... two more to go before we're ready to publish Abandoned Pittsburgh Vol. 3. Prints of these sites will be on the Abandoned Pittsburgh site in next week, available for purchase: www.abandonedpittsburgh.com. Meanwhile, we're getting ready for 2016 markets: Three Rivers Arts Festival, Central PA Arts Festival, Mt. Lebanon Arts Festival, Handmade Arcade, PDP Night Markets, Picklesburgh, I Made It Markets, and more. Stop by our booth and say hello!
