If you’ve been to Pittsburgh, PA, you’ve no doubt seen or maybe even ridden on one of the inclines that rise up from the banks of the Monongahela River to the top of the Mount Washington area of the city. The Duquesne Incline, shown in these photos, is quite picturesque with 2 bright red cars which pass one another going up and down the track. This photo has a slight watercolor filter affect applied to it giving it a painterly look.
If you go inside of the incline station at the top of Mt. Washington, you are able to view the working machinery which moves the 2 cars up and down the mountain. I’ve always loved photos of machinery and particularly in black and white. This machinery is actually bright orange with green railings and beams all around, but I prefer this type of photo converted to black, white and shades of gray.
