You can see the light poles partially submerged in the foreground, a random duck, the edge of grass meets the Allegheny River. Shot Sunday evening. They say the worst is over now, the 10th St. Bypass reopened as the riverwater receded in the night. A family of bicyclers were checking the flooding at different points and said in front of Alcoa upriver the water was higher. At this particular spot it was quiet, no rushing sounds. Get the specs on all the Bridges and Tunnels of Allegheny to learn the difference between a steel tied arch bridge and a steel bowstring arch bridge.
The Allegheny River to the right, flowing under the bridges. And leaking onto the road. This section of road has been in several movies filmed in Pittsburgh. Sunday night so not much traffic. Hopped out at the end of 7th Street Bridge. Caught the roadsigns’ reflection.

A beautiful night at the Pirates Game with good friends. And the Bucs won (8-18-09). When the Gateway Clipper ship cruised by, I remembered driving Mark to the wharf and how he used to work, answering calls to book cruises, take the reservations, sell wine and cheese packages. A nice light, just before dark.
