Not Another Bridge Shot

by fritzthedog

Took a drive back to my home town to photograph the Humber Bridge at the request of a friend. As it is possibly the most photographed bridge outside London - was desperate to do something out of the norm with it.

I will leave it up to you to decide whether I achieved it!

May post a couple of more usual shots later

Very different and effective. Sort of grows on you.

You certainly got a different angle on it, which I like.
Last time I photographed it, it was being built!

Thanks for all of your nice comments guys.

A few messages -

Paul - somehwere I have photos taken on my old 110 of it being built when I was in my teens- around 1977-78 I think - must try and find them

David - I wasn't really being apologetic with the title - I like bridges too- it was a poor attempt at word play - was suggesting it wasn't really a bridge shot

Paul - I was stood on Hessle foreshore - there is a concrete maintenance building surrounded by railings right on the river edge it is part built underground and has a flat concrete roof a couple of feet above ground level probably 20 feet wide I was stood at the back of it shooting through the rear railings over the roof and focused on the railings 20 feet away on the rivers edge if that makes sense
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more
