Is this what they call a swing bridge? I love the design and all of the geometrical design in it. Nice work and great contrast!

I can almost hear the humming of the grated base.

Love the detail here Frank, nicely composed straight down the centre to get that symmetry...

Super job on this one Frank. The last thing you want to hear is, " Hey that's almost symmetrical." Did you scare the heck out of the guy in the lead car?
