Living in the PNW (Pacific North West) is by far one of the greatest spots a photographer could hope to live. Washington has mountains, oceans, fields, landmarks, and a very large handful of abandon buildings and such, not to mention we also have all four seasons. On the 27th of July, accompanied by 3 close friends I finally made my way out to Vance Creek Bridge. For those of you who don't know anything about it, it's a terrifying 347ft tall. Second highest railway bridge ever built in the United States. Looking out onto this bridge is extremely breathtaking, terrifying, beautiful, and amazing. It's 100% worth the drive out there. 

The is seemingly easy to get to unless you ask a barista to give you directions and she gives you some for High Steel Bridge instead. We spent a good hour and a half driving around looking for the bridge, only to run into a lovely old couple who showed us the real way to get there. As obviously dangerous as the bridge is, it's very populated on sunny Washington evenings even as it's just about dark. My friends and I stayed at the bridge for at least a good hour if not more taking photos. My friends have become accustomed to three things when hanging out with me. The first is that I will always have my camera; second that I will ask them to do dangerous things or suggest they pose somewhere precarious for the sake of a photo and lastly that I will get the shot that they can use for their new Facebook profile picture. While on the bridge I made a couple friends the first was Mr. Crazy who hung off the edge with his arms, literally taking his life into his own hands. The second was a cute couple who's memory card was full and I took a photo for them in mine. I gave them my web address but I don't know if they'll see this so if that second couple is YOU please email me so i can get your photo to you! 

Please enjoy the beauty, danger and bravery all rolled into the wonderful photos :)
