This is probably the smallest bridge you will see today on San Francisco Bay Daily Photo. As such, I had to get out very early and paint it so as not to be overshadowed by bigger and more "engineered" structures. It really was a lot of work, took me nearly three cups of Louis's wonderful coffee to complete the project. It is the Perry Mickel Bridge, also known as the 15th Avenue Bridge. It separates Fort Lauderdale from Wilton Manors. It crosses a fork of the Middle River. An occasional Manatee can be seen passing by when looking down. That may take another cup of coffee while you wait. There aren't as many as there used to be.
