Gary, I had not seen this previously. I agree with the positive comments of the others who wrote. You really captured the essence with this powerful (yet not too "busy" ) imaga! Another thing: Thanks for your birthday wishes. This thing of getting old is not for sissies. YOUR ADMIRER, AEW

The piece show action as its happening. Just awesome!

I remember taking a science class in the 80s where they described the phenomenon of "resonance" caused by the wind though the many different size holes on the supporting structure. If you look at the movie clip of the bridge you notice its moving like a wave the wave. The research they spent on figuring this disaster help build better bridges, sky scrapers, cars, ships...

"Galloping Gertie" - Ha! I did not know that. Thanks for the insight. -GP

Old Galloping Gertie, thrashed, bashed and trashed herself right into Puget Sound. Bad deck design. It acted like a parasail. Opening holes through the deck plates allows for the gale force winds that sometimes hits the Narrows to blow right on through. Took a lot of money for the engineers to figure that one out. Cars bucked like broncos crossing the Old Galloping Gertie.
