car crossing onto bridge

Entering the arch.

I got stuck in traffic on a sunny day, taken on a detour of about three miles over the course of an hour, so I took pictures.

Pittsburgh’s 16th Street Bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places and is an interesting structure, unlike other single through-arch bridges, this one is a double arch, and the arches are lower, with stone pillars holding metal sculptures at each end. It’s painted yellow like so many of our bridges.

I really wanted to get this shot without the car in front of me—impossible because of the slowly moving line of traffic—but when I looked at the photos I found I liked the car where it was.

    • Thanks, it really grew on me too–I hadn’t wanted the car in there, but I like it now.
