One of my favorite places

One of my favorite places in Huntington is the sidewalk of the Robert C. Byrd Bridge over the Ohio River. Actually, I prefer to call it the 6th Street bridge, as a lot of locals do.

The sidewalk is on the upriver side of the bridge, meaning it's easy to stand there and get pictures of the Huntington skyline

or the texture of the river surface 70 feet below your feet

or an odd scene that catches your eye, such as a red sports car in a field of green

or a scene of lines and colors and light that you find interesting for a variety of reasons.

It's why I keep going back.
