The Bridge Operators View North

Yup this was taken from inside the bridge operators location (why there are some strange reflections). I just happened to be there taking a shot looking north when the operator stepped outside to throw some trash out and we talked, I asked how to get access to see the inside and he said "You don't look like a terrorist - come on in!". I was very grateful and excited. My only regret was that I only had my long telephoto lens with me and not my shorter lens :-(

For a view north with the bridge still there see this image which strangely was taken exactly 3 years ago...

A dreary day, again, and a landmark gone.
Nice that trust is still around too.

Awww, the scene bridge is almost gone. Congrats on getting in. Did not realize you had so much water around you.

You got the shot. Well done, Patti.
So what will the operator do now they have taken away his operation?

Haven't lost the gift of gab I see! Great shot from a place most of us couldn't get to!
