    The VT Bridge connects the town of San Pedro (port city for Los Angeles, CA) with Terminal Island, which in turn is connected on its other end to the city of Long Beach by another bridge, the Desmond Gerald.

    This view is from the Terminal Island side.

    Olympus XA3 and Right Aid 400 film that I converted to Redscale.

    Note: Right Aid is (or maybe was--not sure I've seen one in a while) a large pharmacy chain here in the USA. Like Walgreens or CVS (other US-based pharmacy chains) they marketed film under their own brand name but the film--in my experience--was always re-branded Fuji.)

    (TMI...?)

    Bridges make a great subject, so many different angles to capture them from. I do like the reduceed colour palette, shows off the structure very well.

    A lot of happy shepherds that night.

    Nice shot, Brian. Good POV.

    I agree about bridges, Dave. Thank you.

    Shepherds...? Is that something to do with the sky?
    Anyway,...thanks Rob!

    "Red sky at night: Shepherds delight!" Have you not come across that saying before, Brian?

    I've heard it as "sailors delight," Rob.

    Cinematically wonderful, Brian. Opening shot of the city coming awake: Shepherds warning! :)
