I don’t usually take shots of busy landscapes. The clutter of man is usually avoided. Here I saw the St. John’s Bridge (Portland, Oregon) spanning the Willamette River. Perhaps that would be a shot without the intrusion of the pilings, structures and rope/buoy…but I took in anyway… just because. Photo taken from the abandoned Linnton Plywood Factory.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
