Hell Gate Bridge in Astoria

The Hell Gate Bridge was opened in 1916, and was the inspiration for the Sydney Harbour Bridge (built in 1925). The red paint used on the bridge fades relatively fast, I believe it had it’s last paint job in 2005 (bright red), but has returned to a very dull maroon color.

    Though I have been shooting Panos since film era, what I saw here is amazing, and makes the viewer ‘get into’ the scene !
