The walkway connects to a spiral ramp...
Yes, that's what I was referring to in my post.
My life's work was dominated by being a bridge design and construction guy. All the pedestrian structures we dealt with associated with major roads were very unappealing basic walkways with chainlink cage like covers.
That spiral design in very nice and pleasing to the eye wether walking, riding a bike or driving an auto over the bridge. Bet it shortens the time for an individual wanting to cross the river too.
Makes me want to see how fast my bike would go down to the ground level...
That is some cedar tree! Here in this arid climate very few cedars grow big enough to be used as fence posts.
All your photos are very nice, thank you for posting.
Not any time soon; however, it does sit in the drawer much more than before getting a good camera with my cell phone. Do take more photos than ever before but really wish I'd have had my DSLR whenever I find myself frustrated because of not being able to coax a shot taken with the cell phone camera into something usable.
Very interesting design - the sidewalk doesn't go full length of bridge.
Nice photos, thank you.
Wow, six pages of sterling compliments in just a couple hours! Must be a record.
Wow, sure don't want to see a listing of your status if and when you catch up with us 80 year old kids!
...Any other panners out there?
Not here but I'm overcome with nostalgia this morning. Sold my last Harley, a 100th anniversary Wide Glide, about six years ago after riding one or another of the models over a very enjoyable 55 years.
Great shot, the angle of the sunshine and catch light in its eye create a dramatic composition of an otherwise good subject as well.
There are many good suggestions above just DON'T QUIT doing what you love!
So much action made me tired...excellent shots of some hardy souls!
Interesting rigging - must be a tow line in the middle and steering lines on either side.
Those are really nice, not having done black and white before I'd like to see what the original images looked like. Thinking since you have done black and white photography before you would have knowledge about which natural colored image would be best to convert to B&W.
Two of my purchasing experiences of a little more than a dozen online have been bad. One on Ebay that would have cost me more for return shipping than the item was worth (many years ago).
Another was on amazon so I gave the seller a bad review but did not get a replacement or refund until a month later when they offered me about eight times the cost returned to my C/C if I'd change my review.
I always check the seller's rating before buying now.
"Won" an item on Ebay a couple days ago and am waiting for it now - got my fingers crossed. There was a half dozen or more photos of the item I wanted on the listing so felt secure enough to PayPal the money to the the guy in Florida. His rating is 97.8% - not perfect but close.
...I would assume AutoCad works a system hard too.
Yes it does. Whenever I build a computer for AutoCad use it gets the best gammer's motherboard available at the time. For some reason the last one built "needed" RAID 5 storage with large multi terabyte drives. Talk about a heater sitting under the desk - never had to worry about cold feet. Actually mounted a fan at the back of the desk knee hole to blow the heat out into the room.
Great Joke, thanks!
Seeing all the very good images captured with cell phones on this site lately I'm beginning to wonder why I lug a heavy DSLR around sometimes. I suppose the images are what I like to get too.
As suggested above I do use "levels" in PS Ele to set the black point in my shots and maybe crop/resize, then consider the work done. Most likely there are at least as many phone shots in my catalogue as are DSLR and most never pay any attention to source of capture when selecting one for use.
Thank you for posting your great photos showing very good depth of field plus all the other attributes of stellar photography.
