Photographer's Note

Summer in the City

As you could see in my previous photos in the Portland series, the weather was fantastic, so of course the water of the Willamette River attracted quite a few people, even though there are only a few bathing opportunities along the river. Here is one though, right next to the large bridges that carry Interstate-5, which created an interesting contrast.

The photo was taken from Hawthorne Bridge and shows three other bridges: Marquam Bridge, the busiest bridge in Oregon, carrying the Interstate-5 across the Willamette River, and behind it Tilikum Crossing, a cable-stayed bridge, opened in 2015 and behind that one the Ross Island Bridge, a cantilever truss bridge from 1926.

A close-up photo of the sunbathing people is found in the WS.
