Foster Park Suspension Bridge #1

This graffiti is on the Foster Park side of the old suspension footbridge over the Saint Mary's River in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The park, one of the biggest in Fort Wayne, occupies a large curve in the river on the city's south side.

This bridge, built in 1930, is something of a hidden treasure. It is in a heavily wooded area of the park, far from the playgrounds, golf course, and flower gardens that bring most visitors to Foster Park. The only way to reach it from the park is to hike through the woods on a primitive dirt trail. The other end of the bridge is at the base of a steep set of stairs leading up to Bluffton Road. The part of the road that the bridge reaches is far from both the residential areas and shopping centers nearby. The bridge is about 20 feet lower than the road, and surrounded by tall trees, making it invisible from the road!

A lot of people on the south side refer to the Foster Park suspension bridge as "The Swinging Bridge" because it bounces and sways if you jump up and down in the middle of the span.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
