Photographed from our friend’s boat when they took us for a boat ride on the Ohio River.
Bridges fascinate me, no matter what angle.
The retirement party at our friend’s home on Neville Island began in early afternoon but the barges and tugs went by into the night. Both directions!
Lots of drama to watch. Multiple freight trains on the opposite bank blew their train whistles.
See the powerful blue light the Captain was shining down river to illuminate a buoy in the middle of the river? Neville Island Bridge is in the background.
Centerpieces with tiny white lights and fishing accessories glowed like lanterns.
Here you can see the dark barges being pushed by the tug as they approach the bridge.
The bonfire kept us warm and warded off the increasing damp chill as the sun disappeared. Skipping the photo my friend took of me devouring a gooey s’more.
Happy Retirement, Sy
At least had to complete the primary colors for Collage. Today marks eight years since I signed onto WordPress and started posting almost daily photos.
WordPress remembered this year and sent me a notice!
Something there is that does love a bridge
The Pittsburgh Bridges galleries from the past two days have evoked a tremendous response from blog viewers. The views today add more weather and some are taken from the river while on the Ducky Tour or the wedding below.
Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress really unleashed so many of the BRIDGE photos I’ve taken. And finding so many images with bridges makes me realize I have taken bridges for granted.
And my friend V is right about the photos- people respond to the the bridge structures, NOT the sunsets taken from a bridge.

Kevin and Kat were married on the Three Rivers Queen and there are numerous shots with various bridges in their wedding highlights.
Bridge is the Weekly Photo Challenge.
I think I have enough bridge photographs to last all week. You’ve seen them before if you follow the blog.
In fact, I might get out and shoot some more bridges not part of my collection-yet.

Yesterday I photographed a few scenes in the drizzly rain. I posted Pittsburgh Autumn in a Dull Light.
Today it was bright and so I returned to the same spots. You can’t see how windy it was.
Thinking about how light affects the mood, color and feel of a photograph.
Today’s shot of the Homestead Smokestacks
and Three Red Trees
and look what happened on my way home? CLOUDS! Lots of clouds arrived in about fifteen minutes time.
