Astonishing construction! Due to the heavy concrete loads it looks like the bridge can be open like an armoire. Probably for the crossing boats. But what about the other bridge upstream?
The bridge beyond is the Walnut Street bridge, and the Wikipedia entry about it
is very interesting. (I can't include it as a link because it ends in a parenthesis.) The Walnut Street bridge was closed for a number of years but has been renovated and turned into a very popular pedestrian bridge. It does not open, and I believe it is higher than the Ross bridge, and river boats can cross beneath it without difficulty.
This isworth a PRESENT for you.
Compliments, Marilyn! Great perspective, very nice composition! The contrasting colours of this impressing structure suit perfectly well in this riverscape. Best wishes, May
Bridges are connections. I like them because they offer great perspectives, but I think we all are drawn to that aspect that conquers rivers and ravines to connect people. This is a strong looking bridge!
Excellent point of view, Marilyn a good light and an interesting story
Love our river
Wonderful bridge, excellent shot! Greetings Eva
I like all bridges, this is a beautiful one Marilyn!! greetings, jenper
Thanks for your visits, Mike, May, Hank, picsonthemove, mohd salim yunus, Eva, and jenper.
Yes, Hank, the "connections" factor is probably part of the fascination.
Thank you, blai. I also thought the colours were lively in the afternoon light.
That's an excellent picture of this beautiful bridge, Marilyn! You chose a good angle to take the photo! Greetings, Anne
Thanks, Anne. The bridge was especially beautiful in the late afternoon light. Greetings, Marilyn

Another beautiful photo Marilyn, such an elegant structure. It's always such a pleasures to wander through your gallery :)
Belated thanks for the comments you made while "wandering," Amelia! I took this on a weekend away from Atlanta while I was doing research in the city. We'll be going to Atlanta again next week, but we haven't decided where we'll go exploring on the weekend between our days in the archives.
Really a nice pict, like, Hervé
