blue flag bridge

Interesting lighting here. I toned everything down to a pale version of the original, but you can still see that the concrete is working gold, while the ground and fences are on the blue team. Lake Michigan is directly to the left in the picture and the tracks and industrial area from the last post are to the right.

This is adjacent to (or maybe even part of) the Port of Milwaukee. The place is fully-decorated with chain link fences,  “No Trespassing” signs, and notices that the area is under 24-hour camera surveillance.

HOWEVER…one chunk of fence was open. A couple of pickups were tucked in there and four or five guys were down along the water’s edge, fishing. I used the fishermen’s entrance and I’m pretty pleased with my Catch of the Day…I hope they were as lucky.

    Cool shot, Patricia. Love the color palette, the lines and how your comp leads your eye to the back of the building. Nice!

    BLUE FLAG BRIDGE by Wabi Sabi Photography.

  5. Patiently shouldering the weight of commerce above, what appears to be another utilitarian railroad overpass reveals its architectural spirit, hidden to all but the intrepid explorer below. If only that image could be animated by the roar of the train passing overhead.

    • Thank you, Warren–your comments are always most wonderfully stated and I am always happy to read them.
      I am trying to name a series of pictures that involve massive concrete pillars and I am going to chew over that “shouldering the weight” phrase.
