  1. You always did well with the night shot. Now go back and get an army of people in boats at night to paint it for you. Do you have that many strobes? Just for fun.

  2. I learned early on that I wasn’t the best photographer in the world, so I specialized in documentary photography under low light.

    With practice, exotic films and developers, I could bring back pictures where most folks wouldn’t even try.

    That’s another way to say that I was too lazy to carry lights.

    I’ve got some beer cellar pix in the pipeline where I used multiple lights, but even that required a kludge.

  3. Fred,

    Shooting the bridge in Cape is like shooting pelicans in FL. Always a safe bet.

    When I judged photo contests, I always gave more points to sunrises than sunsets. The only way I saw a sunrise was if it was from the back side.

  4. Ken – If you’re going to visit Cape one old landmark to photo would be the restored (sort of) entrance to the bridge from the Cape side. Bet a lot of natives who have moved away have not seen it. Run the pic side by side with the “working” entrance of yore, if you have one.

  5. Larry,

    I have that and a shot of the old bridge approach from the IL side. They’ll show up eventually. I may have to declare a moratorium on bridge photos for a few days, though.

  6. I am an engineer and I never get tired of studying that bridge. All the struts and truses I had to study in engineering courses. It was a beautiful bridge. My grandfather also worked on building it.
