Building the Ravenel Bridge

After all the photos I took, I've tried to arrange them in some order based on various topics I found interesting.

And a reminder from T.S. Eliot (East Coker from the Four Quartets)

Old men ought to be explorers
Here and there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion

July 12, 2005: Presenting first views of a clean bridge

The Motley-Rice Building on the Mt Pleasant side of the Cooper River provided not only a great view of the bridge but is also the home of many banana spiders (Nephila clavipes ). This photo taken while hovering above the Motley-Rice Building and presents our new bridge, the old Navy Base area and the upstream Cooper River with elegance and simplicity. If you have your curious eyes activated, visit the brush along the Cooper River in front of the Motley-Rice building and you will see a number of male/female banana spiders. The male is much smaller (maybe 1/5) than the female and is typically oriented perpendicular to his partner. Try to figure out why?

I like these two
