Sepia Scenes allows this subtle sepia monochrome to permeate and enhance the view. This gives the engineered and intricate artistry of timeless designs, the classic creations, their beauty to better stand out.
Today we are traversing westbound on the always impressive George Washington Bridge between Manhattan and New Jersey carrying the important routes of I-95, US 1 and US 9 over the salt water Hudson River fjord. I have used these picture before, but the fantastic shapes look great in sepia. The blue sky would be a (pleasant) distraction here.
The web of structural steel is complex, the cables accenting the vertical tower height of 604 ft (184 M). The roadway itself sits 213 ft above the waterline. The side view from the eastern approach (Henry Hudson Parkway) gives a delicate view of the huge structure. Stylish and strong, the span was opened in 1931, and is so stout a second roadway deck underneath opened in 1962. About 300,000 vehicles cross the bridge each day - so strength and style coexist nicely!
(An excellent history, with mention of the red lighthouse underneath, can be found here.)
