Bridge: Railing and Shadow


Railing and Shadow

Today I'm joining Louis La Vache of San Francisco Bay Daily Photo and friends in a Sunday Bridge Series (click the link to see other interesting bridge shots from many cities). This is the curved railing of the vintage Dr. Jose P. Rizal Bridge casting a shadow on the walkway. It spans between Beacon Hill and the International District and is a favorite photo spot for skyline views with freeway light trails. Many of the bridges in Seattle utilize this green paint that keeps the metal safe from corrosion. It reminds me a little of the palm fronds a lot of children will be waving during processionals this Palm Sunday morning. Wishing all those celebrating the beginning of the Christian faith's Holy Week a very lovely day.

No bridges in Versailles, I guess I need to go to Paris...

Love this very poetic shot.

You made me blush this morning with your compliment on downtown reflected in the Tacoma! ;-)

Have a great Sunday!

What a great shot. I love the angle! Our bridges are painted red or green to prevent rust corrosion. A never ending battle.

Very clever idea, Kim. Always the artiste. MB

I wonder if that paint really works? If so, they could use it on The Golden Gate Bridge. Then, they would have to rename it.

I love it! The green really makes this more interesting as it makes the whole image pop.

A really great shot, Kim. The curve and short depth of field is today's lesson for me.
