This morning, I was reading the CBC.ca Website, and they posted an article, that talked about the best way to photograph Vancouver, British Columbia, was through photographing the bridges, but from underneath. Well, I have been shooting bridges, both on top, and bottom, for years. Why, this last weekend, I got a shot of the Dudley Little Bridges, but from underneath. So, here is my photo of, capturing Terrace, BC, and the Skeena Valley, from under the bridge from last Sunday, on November 11, 2018.
If you read the article, it says that the “Internet knows best how to photograph Vancouver, BC.” You photograph it from underneath. And, I have to agree, if you want to see the best side of Vancouver, you look at the bridges. And, to see the architecture of a bridge, you look at from the water and river banks. And Vancouver has some really awesome bridges.
Terrace and Thornhill, British Columbia, on the other hand, have only one bridge (The Skeena River Bridge, 1925) that has some really amazing architecture, while the other, more newer “Dudley Little Bridges, (1975)” are kind of “meh”? I mean they did things very “plain and practical” back then in the mid ’70s. So the “new bridge,” as we like to call it, was built to serve one purpose: to get cars and trucks across the Skeena River, safely, and as efficiently, as possible. As far as looks go, well, lets just say, it is a bridge. But perhaps this is the hidden beauty of the Skeena Valley?
