Fremont Bridge at Night


The Fremont Bridge is a Seattle landmark that has been around since 1917 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.  Due to its low vessel clearance, it holds the distinction of being the most frequently opened drawbridge in the United States, opening an average of 35 times per day.  I took this through my car windshield, late one night, during one of those openings.

  1. Hi Shari. I’ve made a note to myself to find that batch of pictures from the Fremont Bridge sometime soon and find a good one to share. I hope you’ll notice it when I put it up! And to answer your question, yes- I was gone for a few months. It was a good break for getting a fresh perspective on things and I’m excited about sharing more consistently on WordPress in 2015. I’m a pretty bad blogger but I still think it’s fun to do and I’m motivated to do a better job of connecting more with other photographers.

  2. Cool shot, Shari. A few years ago I came here to do long exposures of cars and trucks rumbling across the bridge at sunset and had a great time. Seeing this brings back those good memories.

    • Thank you. Maybe you could post those….though, I know that going back years to locate certain photos is a daunting task! I haven’t seen any blog posts from you in a long, long time. Did you end up taking that break you were talking about a while back or am I just not getting notifications for some reason? I always enjoyed your posts.
