    Hi Allan, Thank you for following my photography blog, Jane’s Lens. I hope you enjoy my work. I am enjoying your blog and impressed that you worked on the GG Bridge for 15 years. I am one of the bridge obsessed photographers…. thanks for keeping it in good working order! I cannot imagine doing that… 😳

      Thank you for your kind words. I am looking forward to seeing more bridge photos from you. It is always a treat for me to see it through another person’s eyes. Ω
