29 Days - Sepia Span

Under Route 8 northbound, looking toward O'Sullivan's Island in Derby CT. Photo by Patti
This is the underside of a six-lane wide span - more specifically the Connecticut Route 8 Commodore Hull Bridge that spans the Housatonic River. As this view is from the river edge, It feels quiet here, with no signs of people or sprawl to allow us to believe we are in the country, far away from it all.

Yet we are not. The bridge above actually carries about 85,000 vehicles per day. The urban landscape is all around us. But here, on a summer day with a slight antique edit, it looks calm, and we hear no noise - it looks as if we really escaped...

With this touch of sepia the photo gets indeed a calm nostalgic look.
