Bridging Twilight ...


"Twilight drops her curtain down and pins it with a star."
                                              ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery
                                                                          1874-1942

Twilight begins to steal across the waning summer sky
like a painter of dreams over Easton, Pennsylvania as viewed from across
the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, New Jersey next to the historic
Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge.
The bridge that spans the states was completed in 1896 and
survived damage from massive flooding from Hurricane Diane
in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990, and is one of my very
favorite places to photograph.
