Bits, you do an exquisite job of documenting and sharing your beloved city.
Not even Fall yet and you've got fog?
Hey, I sure like this one!
lol, marbiz - I can't say 'Have no fear for your visit' because this is a shot from the beginning of July! Being on the ocean, we can get fog any time of year. This summer there seemed to have been some really unusual fogs, though, and one afternoon when a wall of fog just moved in suddenly it even made the national news. Makes things interesting and imparts such a cool atmosphere, so its pretty enjoyable.
Thanks Penny, marbiz and Guy I'm so glad others like this one! It's a shot that's been sitting in the vault for a while with a bunch of others from the same evening. Every time I go back for a few different shots from that evening, this is the one that jumps out at me, so I end up not posting any of them out of indecision!
Isn't that Peter Lorre lurking on that far bridge?
I like the way that the light plays on the top of that square bit. The glass frames look a bit Prairie style, too.
Thanks for your kind words not1word!
While there's not too much Prairie around here, I think you've got it on the lantern style. The bridge was built around 1930, so that's very likely the architectural influence.
Great photo, sure is worth the extra click and view on full size. Love it.
Cool shot, Bits. I wonder why the light of the 'beacon' is blue, compared to the ordinary streetlights.
I agree with Dianne on viewing this one full size. It's a beauty.
Thanks Dianne! Not what I'd usually post, but that's the advantage of being Bits - I can post all those things Kamaly won't post, lol.
Thanks very observant Norrel! The color difference is due to different light sources. The orangey ones are High Pressure Sodium lamps, while the bluer one is most likely Metal Halide. Landscape Architects like metal halide much better - they don't make everything look yellow orange like High Pressure Sodium lamps do. Except that on a foggy night like this was, the orange light sure added to the film noire atmosphere.
Love this :)
Thanks whoelius ! Its getting to be one of my favs. too.
Thanks so much for finding this and popping it up into view Tom! Greetings from Boston :)
