Although I’ve visited Gate 30 at the Quabbin many times, I had never photographed this bridge until yesterday. Probably could have chosen better light on a prettier day, but this works well enough in Black and White.
The handcrafted workmanship this gentleman practiced 144 years ago outshines today’s efforts by far. Although it has never seen a big rig or constant traffic, I’d bet this could outlast most if not all of today’s modern bridges.
