Miami’s signature bridge

_mg_2035



Like many South Florida photographers, I’ve photographed the MacArthur Causeway Bridge many times from all different angles, but I couldn’t resist doing it again last night as I was on Watson Island photographing the Miami skyline for a make-over on my new company logo.

This colorful bridge links the City of Miami to the City of Miami Beach, part of a four-mile dash that many residents take on a daily basis whether it is beach residents commuting to work in downtown Miami or mainland residents cruising to the beach to party the night away.

It is Miami’s signature bridge although it is not nearly as recognizable to the rest of the world or photographed as much as San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge or New York City’s Brooklyn Bridge.

It might not have the historical or cultural significance of those two bridges nor the classic architectural style, but the homeless people living under it wouldn’t change it for a spot under either of those bridges if you offered it to them.

I found the Golden Gate Bridge (two pictures below) difficult to photograph mostly because it is almost impossible to find an angle that hasn’t been photographed thousands of time already. And on a clearer day at that.

I like this photo of the Brooklyn Bridge with the Manhattan Bridge in the background that I took in 2006. I processed it in sepia because it just looked better that way.

One of my favorite bridges in the world is the Charles Bridge in Prague, which I visited 13 years ago. Back then, I wasn’t much of a photographer. In fact, I had just gotten my point-and-shoot stolen in a train from Berlin to Warsaw by the so-called Russian Mafia, so I didn’t even have a camera. But that’s another story altogether that I might tell one day on Magic City Mania when I have time.

Like the Golden Gate Bridge, there are hundreds of photos of the Charles Bridge on the Internet, but I like this one from the Praque Art Shop.

The beauty of the Charles Bridge is that each statue on the bridge tells a different story. Historically speaking, it blows any American bridge away because it was constructed in the 15th century.

I’m interested in seeing bridges from your cities, whether you photographed them or pulled them off the Internet. I’m interested in hearing the stories about the bridges.

Surprise me.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
