Carver County Minnesota Bridge No 5364 (1934) - Jordan, MN - Minnesota River - April 1992

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

We had many of these beautiful steel bridges crossing the Minnesota River. This bridge near Jordan had a special ghostly beauty during this foggy morning. This is another gem in my photo archives as these steel bridges became structurally unsound and have been replaced by cold, concrete structures.

Thanks for the feedback MinnJohn. The other year I spent countless hours feeding negative strips into my Nikon Coolscan V 35MM negative scanner. The negatives go back to about 1974 when I began my venture into photography. I've scanned about 2TB of negative images but have yet to begin digitizing my slides. I've also spent countless hours adding preliminary tags to those images to accelerate finding those long-forgotten gems. The bulk of my pre-1993 and B&W work was acquired with my 1960's vintage Nikon F's, manual metered. Since 1993, I began work with my newly acquired Nikon F4. All of my silver-halide work ceased in 2008 when I acquired my Nikon D3 and went full digital. Fast-forward to today when I can grab those raw negative scans of my vintage images and perform digital "magic" in Photoshop and breath fresh life into some pretty tough conditioned images and share them with a global audience. In my adding these vintage images to Panoramio I can turn Google Earth and Google Maps into time machines. Pretty cool!
