I’m a fan of Portland Bridges, as you’ve seen from other pictures. This is the Fremont Bridge in Portland, Oregon. With a nice soft focus filter on it.
This is the Tacoma Narrows bridge in Tacoma, Washington as seen from a train. I caught this shot on a recent trip to Seattle and thought it was pretty spectacular. “Galloping Gertie” as it’s been called before, is one of the world’s most famous bridge videos.
This photo was taken today standing on the Vista Bridge in SW Portland, Oregon. It’s an incredibly scenic spot to take a look at Downtown Portland, and further east. Just wanted to share. 🙂
A while back, I took a trip to Seattle. I like taking the train to Seattle and I used to park at my former workplace. A great place to park, but with the downside, you had to walk to the train station. The walk to the train station crosses over one of my favorite Portland…
Taken from below the Bridge of the Gods, in Cascade Locks, Oregon. This bridge is fairly old, opened in 1926 and for a great deal of time, was the only Washington/Oregon crossing until The Dalles. Worth a check, if you’re in the neighborhood. It’s name comes from the following story: The Bridge of the Gods…
This view of the Columbia River, Astoria-Megler Bridge and the Pacific Ocean is from the base of the Astoria Column – Imagine the view if you climb to the top of it.
I have a fascination with bridges. Their sheer size and structure baffle me. Since Portland has 9, soon to be 10 that span the Willamette river. We have many to choose from. Here’s the Fremont Bridge.
A photo from Portland’s Marquam Bridge. Looking at the West Bank of the Willamette River, you’ll note – there are some advantages to being stuck in traffic.
I took this in 2009 on a walk along Portland’s East Bank Esplanade. Looking westward into Portland, there’s so much in this photo, it’s difficult to know where to look. But, you always find something.
