For Roger's great Creative Photo, I offer this time the view on the westernmost tower of the splendid George Washington Bridge. Bridging the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey, this grand and stylish edifice was opened in 1931. The maze of highways leading to/from the span (I-95, I-80, Routes 1, 4, 9, 17, 46, various Parkways and the NJ Turnpike) make it the focal point for drivers. Much like the saying All Roads Lead to Rome, all roads seem to lead to the GWB!
True, it has a functional style, but in its normal state it is austere in its steel covered with gray paint (see ----->). For creative purposes, I made adjustments that add a warm bronze hue to the massive tower, as well as the high rise buildings of Fort Lee. The bronze also softens the view, taking the NYC edge off a bit. As for the title, the Hudson River is a fjord, and is salt water almost all the way to Albany, a distance of over 150 miles. Like the City, this bridge and river are bigger than life. Check out the other creative minded individuals at Roger's site!
