    Bridges

    I find bridges to be an interesting subject. This thread is for photographs of bridges. Here is a recent photograph of the Golden Gate Bridge taken last Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately image restrictions and the JPEG format reduce the luminosity (shadow detail) of this image. Taken with a Shen-Hao 4x10 and 480mm APO Ronar on Bergger 200 a print at 72dpi is 12.65' x 31.45'.

    My favorite subject, by far. Unfortunately, I don't have a scanner.

    Old truss bridges are my favorite, but the Golden Gate is my favorite suspension bridge, especially as viewed from the park at the north end.

    Crappy Cyanotype of a footbridge in a mystery MA location. The exciting information ends there.

    Ditto on favourite subject. I, too am sans scanner though.
    (Somewhere in amongst the negs is a pic of the bottom-side of the Golden Gate taken from the deck of a destroyer as she passed underneath)

    Oklahoma does indeed have quite a history of old bridges, as evidenced in Gene's pics. (good pics!!) Three summers ago, I spent weekends driving backroads of Oklahoma from Ok. City south and west taking old highway and railroad bridges. Quite a plethora of them that are long abandoned.

    One set of pics I shot brings to mind a subject of accessability and "right-to-photograph". I took a set in downtown OKC, late evening, set up in the middle of the road, of the super-structure of bridges running beside the Ford Center. Police drove by, looked at me like I was stupid, and told me I shouldn't be standing in the middle of the road like that, to please move to the sidewalk, and drove off. Anyone (esp. NYC) ever hassled for shooting bridges?
