bridges

so it's been awhile. been busy with some strange gigs. oscar & i traveled all the the way to delaware to play for Alison White (http://www.missdelaware.org/alisonwhite.htm), aka miss delaware 1997. the whole weekend felt like a christopher guest movie. but to and from the gig, we passed over the delaware canal bridge. check it out: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/eihd/images/canddcb.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/eihd/canddcb.htm&h=224&w=326&sz=37&tbnid=o8Coua1apSMAAM:&tbnh=78&tbnw=114&hl=en&start=1&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddelaware%2Bcanal%2Bbridge%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DG goddamit that's a long link. hostbaby is perhaps not the best at this whole "internet" thing. but then again, neither am i. another bridge that looks just like this is the Zakim Bridege in boston: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.backbaypress.com/images/corporate-05.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.backbaypress.com/corporate-05.html&h=345&w=517&sz=86&tbnid=JPsiN5c8QbrTSM:&tbnh=85&tbnw=128&hl=en&start=2&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dzakim%2Bbridge%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DG another long link. damn. and finally, i once saw a similar bridge in Ireland: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://gtx2.net/images/boyne_bridge.jpg&imgrefurl=http://gtx2.net/2005/03/up-north.htm&h=301&w=410&sz=91&tbnid=FYh_N6R7e1C2lM:&tbnh=88&tbnw=121&hl=en&start=14&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dboyne%2Bbridge%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DX these may not interest you in the slightest, but i have always dug bridges. i like the functionality mixed with aestheticism. and of course, the ultimate in bridge sculpture is in my backyard: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://brooklyn-bridge.visit-new-york-city.com/Brooklyn-Bridge-1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://brooklyn-bridge.visit-new-york-city.com/&h=252&w=322&sz=17&tbnid=Td-0cAbEgtd-vM:&tbnh=89&tbnw=114&hl=en&start=9&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbrooklyn%2Bbridge%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN sorry for the long links! enjoy.
