Winter in Hobart

Just about every day, for the past 2 weeks this has been the view I have seen my way home from work!  Just on sunset the light comes from below the deck of the bridge.  Those  columns are grey concrete!

Today I finally decided to pull over as I approached the bridge, and I took this photo!  This is the Tasman Bridge - the one that was knocked down by a ship (The Lake Illawarra) in 1975! 

Total length 1,395 metres (4,576 ft)

Width 17.5 metres (57'-2 ft)

Height 60.5 metres(197 ft)

Those stats make a very beautiful bridge!  I just love those strong lines!

On my home from work today, I also saw this!

This is my little Grandaughter, Lucy!

Just look at that trigger finger - she knows what to do with a camera!

Sally! Don't you just love the difference the sun can make on a very industrial image! Great photo! Outshined only by your darling little Lucy! No doubt a photographer in the making!

When I think of all the hours I spent in a dark room making pictures of the kids doing various things into books to teach reading my mind is somewhat blown by what could be done with a digital camera and computer and printer in the classroom.
Last time I was in Hobart that bridge was what a stick in the mud I am.
Love the photo
What is your favorite color Ms Sally???
