Zakim to Longfellow
I had a rare chance here to capture the Longellow and Zakim in one shot with good early evening light, the moon, clouds and no sailboats in the foreground-so I took it!
Zakim Bridge, which was built during the Big Dig, is one of widest cable-stayed bridges on the planet. Its obelisks deliberately mirror the nearby Bunker Hill Memorial and serve as an homage to those who lost their lives while fighting for their freedom.
The Longfellow is also dubbed the “Salt-and-Pepper Bridge” because its towers resemble salt shakers, this bridge joins Beacon Hill to Kendall Square in Cambridge. Cyclists, pedestrians, cars, and trains all use the bridge.
