Smartphone Saturday: Beneath Howe Avenue Bridge


Smartphone Saturday is upon us again. I’ve got just enough time to post my unedited smartphone photo before I slip on a tux and head to wedding of two true friends.

Today’s image displays the world underneath the Howe Avenue Bridge. You too can spot this scene while riding/running/walking/skipping along Sacramento’s American River Trail. As you stand here, you hear the echoes of traffic racing along the streets above while the river lazily washes along beneath. The repeating geometry of the place also gives a distinctly man-made vibe to what is also a beautiful natural landscape.

Hundreds of cars passed overhead in the short break my wife and I took at this spot. Despite the traffic up top, the tons of concrete above our heads momentarily shielded us from the hustle of life.
