Bad Photography Sunday: And Bridge Two

This is the newer of the two Susquehanna River crossings between Wilkes-Barre and Kingston.  There's a simple reason for that-- the old bridge that connects Pierce Street in Kingston with North Street in Wilkes-Barre fell in the river during the Tropical Storm Agnes flood in 1972.

If you look carefully, you can see construction equipment on the bridge, part of a long resurfacing project.

This bridge doesn't have the grace and beauty of its downstream counterpart, but if you look at it right, it does have its charm.
