Most of the photographs of bridges I see are taken from the air or otherwise above the bridge. Me, I go down, down, down and look up at the underbelly. This is the Mystic-Tobin Bridge in Boston, the largest in New England.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of making publicity photographs for the bluegrass-roots-Americana-fusion band Acousticana. The setting was The Waterworks Museum beside the Chestnut Hill Reservoir in Boston. The band wanted to avoid cliche album-cover images such as railroad tracks, brick wall, and dry, open fields. The museum’s fascinating restoration of giant wheels and pumps provided the ideal setting.
Some days I feel very lucky to be a photographer. Yesterday, I made these images from the roof of a building in downtown Boston. The view was almost as good as flying.
