Portage Lake Lift Bridge” by Justin Murawski

“This is the Portage Lake Lift Bridge, which is an iconic bridge between my hometown, Hancock, and the city across river. More even than giant snowbanks, da Bridge means home to me, and it is, I think, an intrinsically beautiful piece of engineering, in a boxy 1950s way. The white-and-blue color scheme is very U.P. – snow and water and sky.” – Christopher Tassava
