    Took a trip down to the area of the collapse today, they had a very large area caution taped off, so i tried focusing more on the people who were in the area.

    Great series. I was wondering when someone was going to post some shots of that. The lady on the bridge is killer, and I like the shot of the people on the abutment near the grain silos. Oh, and it looks like you've got a good zoom. I assume that last shot was taken from the Stone Arch bridge?

    phil- i was shooting at 400mm (200 with 2X teleconverter) but your lens might have made it a bit sharper...,

    neal- thanks for your comment! someone else DID post photos of this already (photos which are better than mine) but i dont remember where they are, try checking the photojournalism gallery.
    and yes, i was on the stone arch bridge

    I like your memorial shot the best. Was that on top of the mound?

    I went down there today to, it was pretty wild. I took some shots and found some places where I could get close to the bridge. A bike is the best way to get around. I will post some pictures in a couple hours as I have to go to work here soon.

    A bridge collapsed here in CT like 10 years ago and my dad knows one of the guys who got hurt in it, he was 5 min before the bridge when it collapsed, freaky stuff.

    Nice pics tho, lots of emotion.
