A Little More Relaxed
One of the great things about Windsor is how everything in general is a little more relaxed.
Take this photo for example, had I been on the Detroit side with my camera under the bridge, I probably would have been shot. A freind of mine’s son was detained by Homeland Security a few years ago for having a camera in the vicinty of Bridge.
Being under the bridge is kind of nerve wracking, as I have noticed in other places, large chunks of concrete that gave way to below. Most of the bridge is fenced off over here, not in the name of “Homeland Security” but in the hope to avoid lawsuits of falling debris. Most of the bridge runs feet from the University of Windsor Campus, and there is a lot of Student Parking on the other side of the bridge. It’s a shame that people are denied the freedom to wander and photograph under and around the bridge. The Art Deco massing of the piers was designed by Architect Wirt Rowland of Smith, Hinchman & Grylls who also designed the Guardian, Buhl and Penobscot Buildings. The bridge is a work of art intself, and I think it is really not appreciated as it should be.
However, all that being said, I liked it better when it was Black.
