Have I told you before that bridges are another favourite subject of mine to photograph ? They have so many interesting angles that the photo opportunities are seemingly endless. I've just finished reading a fascinating book about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge (The Great Bridge, by David McCullough, ISBN 0-671-45711-X), but no, unfortunately, I didn't make any photos of it today.
Instead, Sasha and I drove down to the Cape Coral Bridge, in its own right fascinating. A single span, 1030m/3400' long, was built in 1964 over the Caloosahatchee River to connect Fort Myers and Cape Coral, reducing a 32km/20mi drive to the length of the bridge. A second parallel span was added in 1989. I haven't been able to find out why drivers pay $2 to come to Cape Coral, but it's free to cross over to Fort Myers.
