I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, and spent 24 years of my post-college life in Montgomery, Chester, and Lehigh Counties. Never do I recall "youse guys" as an indigenous term. That was considered to...

I find these "obstructions" to be atmosphere, not obstruction, which, by my definition is an opaque solid object that most often can be avoided by better selection of photo location.
