Nice photos, Lisa! Next time you're nearby could you get some more photos, especially of... oh - is gone, isn't it. Torn down, gone forever. *sigh*

Except we have your pictures. Thank you!!

Since you added the photos as a comment, there isn't a way for you to specify licensing. (With an editor account, you can) That means I can't make a copy or edits to your photos without your permission. So I'm asking - may I edit and re-post some of your photos?

I took some pictures of this bridge just a few days before it was taken out. Thought I would share them. Thanks Lisa
