Westward Bound (Sunday Bridges)

This is the Gerald Desmond Bridge, connecting Long Beach to Terminal Island, which I sometimes take on my way home from work. For an excellent site with historical info and great old photos of Terminal Island Bridges, click  www.floodgap.com/roadgap/47-103.

Awesome perspective - as long as you don't shoot and drive.

I goofed today and posted 2 photos...this bridge post was on auto-pilot.

Haha. Good goof. But you haven't said. Were you driving when you took this?

I also have to ask...how in the world did you take this photo? Fantastic shot!

Love this shot Tash!!! And I'm assuming that since you posted this...you were successful driving and shooting at the same time!!!

Let's just say that I was NOT using the cell phone (which is illegal in California if it's not a hands-free device).

:-) I'll never tell my conclusion about how this shot was made!
Love the hint of color on the horizon and all that geometric steel framing the view.
