The Lowry Ave Bridge, Part 1

Click on thumbnails to expand.

Walking from the east river side overlook, this was  the first impression of the bridge.  From this perspective the viewer is presented with the geometry of the construction, shadows from the morning sun and the white on blue of bridge and sky.  The arch gives the sense of leaping into the sky as one crosses from one side to the other.

The monochrome version strips away the color which emphasizes the lines, shapes and shadows.  Multiple leading lines take the eye from one side of the bridge to the other.  Unlike the cars and pedestrians, the eye can fly up and over the arch, perhaps taking the opportunity to imagine the view up river, all the way to the headwaters, or downriver toward the skyline of the city and eventually the Gulf of Mexico.

July Sky

July skies in the northland are often changing as quickly as the weather changes.  A nice day by Lake Superior can turn on you in a heartbeat.  Within minutes, the temperature can drop by 20 or more degrees as the wind shifts around from the east off the lake.  Even on an eighty degree day you need to keep a jacket handy for such occasions.

Solar Effects

Usually, shooting into the sun is not recommended, but I kind of like the effect in this image.  It’s bursting with energy, pouring it down out of the sky.
