Hi, Tony! My VOTED for this fascinating shot! Greetings from Italy, Hermann.

Tony Reid on July 22, 2009

Not quite so good on the NPC, Argenna. I was way to short. Thanks for voting though!

I'm glad you liked this shot enough to vote for it, Hermann.

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

Looks like an incomplete bridge but certainly a complete photo. Yellow star

Tony Reid on July 22, 2009

That's the Pacific Ocean, Itallica. So the bridge would have to go a long way!

I thank you for the Yellow Star.

Cheers, Tony

I was in the right place at the right time that morning, Jacqui. I had tried a couple of previous times, but never had it quite right.

I was most please with the results.

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

Hi Tony, heard that the Pier has some damage, following our June 13 2011 aftershocks.

Like it has slumped something like 3 or 4 inches . . . and it closed to walkers.
