Memorial Bridge Deconstruction

21st April 2012
While I prefer strict landscape photography, incorporating the hand of man in the landscape is always a challenge creatively and technically. Often, events such as the Memorial Bridge Deconstruction project take place when lighting is not optimal for stand-out images. The sight of a huge steel bridge floating down the harbor was visually a stunning subject and a bit of local history. Instead of reacting to light and composition, photographic decision are determined by tides, construction deadlines/schedules, weather, and safety concerns of the barge and tug operators. If you have not had the opportunity to witness this amazing project, hopefully these images will give you a sense of its scale.
