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: More views of a clean bridge

Sometimes the chemistry between folks with similar interests is such that unexpected reactions (i.e. surprises) occur. Today was on of those occasions. Wade Watson and PBC organized an early morning helicopter ride around the bridge and arranged to have all extraneous stuff removed. Needless to say - I had two cameras going - and from altitudes ranging from 600 to 1200 ft - this is what I saw. We were doubly blessed since the sun decided to say hello while we were flying. The early morning sun created impressive views of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge while circling between Mt. Pleasant to Charleston.
