Although inspired by varied subject matter, I am forever drawn to the ocean, its shores and all things nautical, including vessels of every description and for whatever purpose. Within each capture, the camera and lens freezes a moment in time representing something of significance to which I've reacted. Perhaps it was an emotion, an awakened memory, the physical manifestation of a notion or attribute, but always more than the subject matter itself.The result is the image you see before you.
The New Memorial Bridge 2012/2013 -A Rebirth
It was on February 8, 2012 that the center span of the original Memorial Bridge was raised and lowered for the last time. The New Memorial Bridge was officially dedicated on August 8, 2013. Former Portsmouth Mayor Eilleen Foley was on hand to cut the ribbon on the New Hampshire side; returning after having performed the same task some 90 years earlier for the original Memorial Bridge, at the age of 5. The following images attempt to chronicle portions of the various stages of the reconstruction process and provide the viewer a glimpse into how this bridge came to life, at least through the eyes of those of us who had somehow and seemingly breathed character and purpose into this pile of asphalt, concrete and steel.
