Popular Photography magazine has fired up its copy of Excel, pecked in some occasionally stupid criteria, and come up with its list of the top thirty photo-friendly cities in the US.
As I said, I think a lot of the criteria are worthless. Per-capita number of camera stores? Number of sunny days per year? I don't know about you, but neither factor has ever entered my mind when I venture out with my camera.
Maybe I'm just bitter because my home town of Pittsburgh, PA -- with its beautiful rolling hills, dramatic skyline where rivers converge, and historic architecture -- didn't even make the cut.
