I was processing the adrenaline of the pressure to get some good shots and also wanted to capture the moment with video. What a great way to end the night!

The Memorial Bridge Lift Span is Removed

After much anticipation over the last few days, and an incredible amount of hard work that was put in by those involved – the Memorial Bridge lift span has been removed! It was amazing to see the number of people out all day long just watching with fascination.  Despite the cold weather, the piers and grounds at Prescott Park were packed all day long right through the actual removal of the lift span around 10:30pm. As soon as the bridge started to move on its Kittery side, the crowd erupted with cheers.  Be sure to check out the video for a feeling of the crowds awe!
