Arches Hell Gate Bridge, Wards Island, New York City
Under the arches of the approach of the majestic Hell Gate Bridge, one of the main rail links between New England and the rest of the United States. The photograph shows the repeated forms and shadows providing a rhythm and measuring space into the frame. The warm tones of the late afternoon spring sunlight find a resolve with the patch of pale blue sky that shows from between the foreground arches. Evident is the beautiful sense form coupled with an industrial drive that characterized the early part of the last century, when the bridge was built.
