Photo: Beneath the Lions Gate

There's something about the Lions Gate Bridge that makes it look oddly fragile. Not in person, mind you--when you're right next to those thousands of tons of riveted steel spanning the water, its strength is patently obvious. No, it's more the work of photographs; to me, it sometimes looks like it was built just to tolerances, that it was built to be exactly what Vancouver needed at the time and nothing more. It's probably because of how it reminds me of the Golden Gate Bridge, without having the same appearance solid construction as the Golden Gate Bridge--the Lions Gate seems almost wispy in comparison.
