    Covered bridge at Wakefield Quebec. This is a negative scan, complete with scanner dust of an 8x10 PlusX Aero negative. It's not a great scan as it was done only to get an idea of what I might be working with when I printed it, but it'll have to do for now.

    cheers

    The Pretoria Bridge, a lift bridge across the Rideau Canal on a grey damp day in Ottawa. A negative scan of FP4+ taken in a Calumet 4x5 monorail. It printed a bit lighter than this and in the print, the detail on the ironwork of the centre span shows more clearly.

    cheers

    The Five-Span stone bridge across Ontario's Mississippi River at Pakenham. It's a difficult bridge for which to get a nice shot of all five arches. This is a negative scan of FP4+ shot in a Calumet 4x5 monorail. One of my earliest LF pictures.

    cheers

    I've often gotten hassled for photographing bridges, but almost never on my home turf. The one exception was in the National Park at the south end of the Verrazano Bridge. As we were setting up tripods, park police told us we couldn't photograph, despite the hundred or so tourists standing right beside us that they DIDN'T hassle as they took the same shot.

    NYPD tend to be curious, and have often looked at the GG, but have never hassled me. They're usually quite polite and wait until I've finished setting up or taking the photo.

    NJ and PA state and local police along both sides of the Delaware River have been almost apoplectic when I've photographed there. Even when I'm photographing small bridges on the side roads, and not the main spans over the river.

    Re: Bridges

    Kinda envy Paul and Terence. Between Manhattan and Jersey ya got more than a few bridges to shoot. We lived in Nyack for about a year and a half, with me working from Midtown Nanhattan to de Bronx, to White Plains. Got to see TOO MANY bridges. Plenty of time to take pics of them at 7:00 a.m., though... Especiallyfrom mid-bridge...
