Mr. Roebling’s Bridge

I took this shot Sunday just before the fireworks started. It’s made up of 42 images stitched together. This is really pretty close to how it looked when I was there. The sky was beautiful and the lighting on the bridge was – as always – wonderful.

If you’re not familiar with the bridges of Cincinnati (all 7 of them), this is the Roebling Suspension Bridge. It was designed and built by John A. Roebling and is often considered the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge. You can see that they have some similar styling cues. It’s still in use; in fact, it has recently reopened after an extensive refurbishing.
