Thanks Michelle, even a blind squirrel stumbles into an acorn every once in
awhile.  I was fortunate that Apple makes the camera so easy/fast to get to
on the iPhone....and that there wasn't much camera shake considering I was
driving while I was taking it.

Here is the Google maps shot of the same bridge.

Btw, I am totally with you on Percy! As good a singer as he was a
songwriter, and that IS some fine, fine music to these here ears.  It is no
wonder Ray Charles hired him to be HIS writer. Checkout this YouTube video
featuring his tune about his "own hometown," mixed in with pics of Minden,
La as well as some fond remembrances by some of his friends. This tune came
out on Ray's Tangerine label.

 Great pic, Chuck - the soft mist and the straight lines of the bridge -
 And it does look like there's a person standing there.
Love Percy, too - esp. "Louisiana".
Thanks - Michelle
