Silver arches

On the way down the river today, I stopped at the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam (nee Gallipolis Locks and Dam) to see if there was anything interesting. Nope. As I was leaving, I saw the bridge connecting the dam piers in my rear view mirror and decided to get a couple of snaps -- one straight and one artsy. Here they are.

I've always liked the design of this dam, and not because I grew up close to it. The art deco (?) design goes beyond the more utilitarian design of modern dams.
