Drive-by Astoria #10: Two Bridges

Astoria, Oregon ~ September 15, 2012
Highway 101

For any non-locals who wonder what the relationship is between Astoria's two largest bridges, this photo shows it pretty well. Coming from Warrenton, we're approaching the part of Young's Bay Bridge that lifts on the rare occasion that a taller boat needs to go underneath. After you hit the traffic circle at the end of the bridge, a couple of blocks takes you to a traffic light. Go straight and you're headed for downtown Astoria. Turn left onto the bridge and you're on your way to Washington. (See map.)

What a great! This shot exemplifies the strength of your vision. People drive by this every day and never think of putting together such a valuable composition. How you take detail and make something of it is such a credit.

Interesting! I love photos with narratives. The city I pretty much grew up in has two bridges like this very close to each other. The old Terminal Island draw bridge and the newer Vincent St. Thomas bridge.
