I remember this bridge from before. It's quite a fascinating place and interesting to photograph I expect. It makes me wonder where exactly this bridge is situated. Because graffiti is usually associated with youth, I imagine this place to be right on the edge of town within walking distance. Or maybe it's the target of the newly qualified drivers who take a ride out with their spray cans. I don't think I really want to learn the answer, mystery is sometimes a good thing. Hope you're keeping well my friend.

@Mike: Well, Mike - you'll have to decide if you want to have a look. On Thursday, much about this bridge will be revealed - including a map. FYI - and thanks!
The bridge is so beautiful, graffiti ugly. I'm enjoying these series.

the light is wonderful, and I like the lines created by the bridge and shadows in your wonderful composition. I also find it interesting with the contrast between the "art" provided in the graffiti and in the natural art in the background - in my eyes the natural wins!!!

Great street scene - I am always amazed by the amount of graffiti on these older structures! With the graffiti and the curves this has a lot of visual interest! Great shot!

@Scott F. Schilling: Hey Scott - 'tis a fact. For some while this was the only tagged object around. Recently however a large, nearby abandoned silo has received some heavy artistry.
Almost like a concrete rainbow... yet it is clearly the work of human hands (and spray paint) with lots of time to do their special "thing" here.

@Viewfinder: Don't give the surprise away - but Thursday will reveal numerous facts about this span - leading off with the notion that this is a 'Rainbow Arch Bridge' (built in 1923). Good eye, Glenn!
So much graffiti on this bridge but it still does not take away from the architecture and nice lines.
