Today @allie912 and I took a canal cruise in downtown Richmond and then we had a wonderful lunch at the Conch Republic. Since she and I took several very similar photos, I thought I would edit mine so they looked a bit different from hers. Hope you enjoy them. I started posting on the 365project in 2010, kept up with it for 2 years and then made friends with some of my 365 buddies over on FB as I could no longer keep up with all the commenting here. Today I decided maybe I should just post a photo here every so often as I have never stopped taking photos...and I always enjoyed all the interactions and photos posted by people all over the world. Photography remains one of my passions. I'm no pro, but I do have my own style. Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
Oh, and this drawbridge really fascinated me, so I found some info on it in case anyone else might be interested...(one of the only ones left in the US.) "This is a "Bascule" type bridge design —- the term is French for 'see-saw'...This particular bridge is a modified design: a "Scherzer Rolling Lift Bascule." It allows the structure to both lift up and rock backwards thus permitting the rail span to be shorter and lighter and easier to move."
