    Love the angle you used to get this great photo,,,wonderful write-up explaining it.


  • Like most photographers sometimes we feel the inclination to be taller in order to get just the right shot. Well, this is one of those. The only good view is standing on the barrier between pedestrian/bike traffic and the highway 8 ft. in the air! You get the strangest stares from those who initially think your going to jump!
