  2. Wow, some engineer/architect got free reign with the $$$ and the creativity. What a futuristic bridge and nice capture for you.

    I've been to Redding, but not since they built the bridge.

    I read an article on the bridge in Sunset magazine and it's interesting how supportive the community supposedly was to such a comparatively avant garde design in a small town. Or so the article alleged. However, I must say, your images Lar are more creative and interesting than the ones in the magazine.

    Very nice images of a very neat looking bridge. Reminds me of Star Trek The Next Generation insignia.

    I know I can be somewhat geeky :)
