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 16, 2005: Bridge Dedication

First images - and you thought there were only two towers - how many can you count?

The stay cables that Olivier Forget and Freyssinet brought to Charleston - and Ellen and myself

Wade Watson - who directed this symphony of workers and his mom.   My wife, Ellen, who directs me.

Bobby Clair and my MUSC colleague, Lester    and of course, the crowd and the west tower.

Many many signatures

The color guard

Cousin Arthur

Cousin Arthur and the west tower

Folks enjoying the new stools around the west tower

Everyone gets a piece of the action

The C-17 flyby: Marvin caught this from the aquarium - not bad for a bridge worker!
