Default Tunnel Vision -- Pedestrian Bridge

The nearest tunnel is about five miles from this location. This is a pedestrian bridge on the Eastbank Esplanade, a walking trail on the east side of the Willamette River in downtown portland.

I think this fits Selvin's second category of tunnel vision.

Looks like a tunnel (albeit open) to me.

Interesting how further down the "tunnel" the optical effect of the repetitive structure abruptly changes.

There are three segments of the bridge visible here.

I really like the first picture, with the tunnel effect. The funny thing is that I find the bridge, as taken in the second picture, rather ho-hum. Looking at that photo I would never have guessed that there was as cool/fun/neat a picture as the first one there. Glad you posted both pictures, always find such things interesting.

Nice shot, I think it would also work with the sky and sides cropped away.
