La photo entre amis: contraste / contrast

La photo entre amis is a small Facebook photo group that a friend and I just started. Each one of us gets his/her turn to pick a theme. The theme being treated here is:contrast (not light contrast). If you’d like to participate, please feel free to request to join the group. Just know that you might need to know a little French to understand the basic rules and the few comments as this is a primarily French-speaking group.

I’m back in San Francisco right now, and the new Bay Bridge recently opened. So I thought I’d take a picture of both the old one and the new one in the same frame. It’s pretty cool to be able to see both. They now have a walkway on the new bridge from which you can see the old bridge.Wonder why we have a new bridge to replace the old one? In short, the old bridge didn’t fulfill the seismic requirements.

Je suis à San Francisco pour le moment et le nouveau Bay Bridge a récemment ouvert. Donc j’ai pensé qu’il serait intéressant de voir le vieux et le nouveau pont sur la même photo. Ils ont fait un chemin sur le nouveau pont qui est accessible aux piétons ce qui permet de voir l’ancien pont. Vous pouvez lire les détails sur l’ouverture du pont (en anglais) ici. En gros, le vieux pont n’était pas aux normes sismiques.

  1. The other interesting thing about this shot is that the bridges start from different directions. Normally, bridge replacements are built side by side. These appear to be perpendicular. Thank you for visiting and the like of my post “Curious Fly”.

Comments? They are much appreciated! ;)
