Wikipedia Description: Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge crosses Harbor Drive at Park Boulevard in downtown San Diego, California. It is 550 feet (170 m) long which makes in one of the longest self-anchored pedestrian bridges in the world. The span measures 350 feet (110 m) while the remainder is approaches.
Completed in March 2011, the bridge was built to accommodate pedestrian traffic from the Petco Park baseball stadium crossing to and from parking areas on the other side of Harbor Drive at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel. The bridge crosses over six lanes of traffic, a rail yard and trolley tracks, and connects the convention center with the Gaslamp Quarter and the East Village. It is accessible by stairs and elevators.
The bridge is suspended from a single 131-foot (40 m) tall pylon set into the ground at a 60 degree angle. The unusual, "eyecatching" features a curved concrete deck that is suspended only on the deck's inside curve by a single pair of suspension cables. The bridge was constructed using stainless steel and has lighting above and below the deck. It has been described as "a sleek, nautically themed bridge with a very nice view of the city."
The Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge was built by Reyes Construction, Inc. T.Y. Lin International engineered the project, and Safdie Rabines Architects was project architect. It cost $26.8 million and was funded in part by a $6 million grant from the California Transportation Commission.

2010 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used the Fuji S100fs until the third one broke and I started sending them back for repairs. Then I used either the Fuji S200EHX or the Nikon D90 until I got the S100fs ones repaired. At the end of the year I bought a Nikon D5000 but I returned it pretty quickly.
Trips this year:
Civil War Trust conferences (Lexington, KY and Nashville, TN), and
my 5th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Los Angeles).
My office at the main Commerce Department building closed in October and I was shifted out to the Bureau of the Census in Suitland Maryland. It's good to have a job of course but that killed being able to see basically any cultural events during the day. There's basically nothing of interest that you can see around the Census building.
Number of photos taken this year: about 395,000..
