Bridge Ramp

Here's an entrance ramp to our relatively new bridge the Casco Bay Bridge, that opened in 1997. It took the place of the Million Dollar Bridge(that WAS the name of it... because it cost what to build?... ya, you guessed it! a Million in 1916). This photograph was shot from Commercial Street, looking up at the ramp, some houses and the great shadow. I took about 30 shots this morning, but this one ended up being a favorite. I like the whole wrap around effect and this bold stanchion standing in the sun.
