This is for people who don’t live in Pittsburgh. You know we have lots of bridges here. But today I am highlighting the driving through one of our tunnels.
Experience the Liberty Tunnel as I did last Tuesday night. First opened in 1924.
At first the radio is playing. Then static as reception is lost.
The Liberty Tunnel is 5889 feet long. The tunnel was empty except for me. One car whizzes by towards the end. I put the iPhone on the top of the steering wheel and just drove without looking at it. Not too fast. Next week the Ft Pitt tunnel so you can see the city at the mouth of the tunnel.
Just had the urge to document the emptiness and the movement as I traveled through. The sound of a motorcycle can be heard too. And then the radio reception returns. Disclaimer- may cause motion sickness? Steve said it seems like he was traveling through the atmospheres of Jupiter. What an imagination.
You drive out of the tunnel, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, fivefourthreetwo, ONE– PITTSBURGH! The cityscape welcomes you. Dramatic entrance after the darkness. The day you get back it is blue sky! The bridge almost gold. Your camera’s right there on the passenger seat. This is what you see. rutheh.wordpress.com
