Photographer's Note

The striking Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge spans the River Tejo at its narrowest point and connects Lisbon on the north bank with the commuter districts of Almada on the south. The bridge closely resembles that of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, a likeness that comes from the fact that this bridge was constructed by the same company. The name of the bridge commemorates the revolution of Portugal from the Salazar regime on April 25th, 1974.
