Under the Bridge

Homestead Grays Bridge, built in 1936, was formerly called the Homestead High Level Bridge. I Pulled into a parking space to shoot the underbelly Wednesday night. The blue light against the night sky. The bridge spans the Monongahela River but this part is over the Waterfront shopping area.

“It is notable as the first bridge to incorporate the Wichert Truss, which uses a quadrilateral shape over each support, into its design. This made the truss statically determinate, so that forces in the structural members could be calculated.” Wikipedia

A 2017 blog post I did of bridges going over the Monongahela shows a different view of this same bridge.

Lone Shoe-Guest Blog

Today’s post is number 4,446.

It’s alway satisfying to receive a photo and the sender says they thought of me when they took it.  This photo was sent by my SIL Bobbie in Kansas City.

Bobbie says.

I took a photo of this lone shoe, seen during my regular early Saturday morning walk.”

These photos are great writing prompts…..

Fireworks on the Fourth

I had a nice birthday and finished up the day watching fireworks from the front porch. Right across the street, shot from the baseball field. A beautiful summer night with lightning bugs too.

A short video of fireworks across the street.

It was quite a display seen from my front porch
