In May, I posted some photos of this bridge taken on an overcast, shadowless day. Given the dull quality of the light, I was gratified that they turned out as well as they did. I still had an itch to take the same photos in bright sunlight, to catch what I knew would be a dramatic play of light and shadow. Recently I found time. Here are the results.
Built in 1936, the bridge continues to support a huge volume of motor vehicle traffic. The train—now a commuter rail line—runs under it, so it may not be what most people consider a "railroad bridge," but I still think of it that way. You can see my earlier photos of the bridge at Bridge, and of the lumber yard bisected by the tracks at Lumber.
