Photos of the Day: Fotogs' fascination with bridges as background

Monday, May 21, 2018

NEWPORT, RI (#1020) – It's not just the Golden Gate Bridge that is popular with yacht racing snappers. With the Volvo Ocean Race in town, for Sunday's start the Race Director wisely – at least for promotional purposes – sent the yachts under the Newport Bridge to a turning mark just north of the bridge before they headed south back under the bridge, past Fort Adams one last time, past Castle Hill, and into Rhode Island Sound. This court afforded some great helicopter visuals during the live-streamed coverage of the start and the hour-long fan- and fotog-friendly Tour-de-Bay, as you Ed. calls it. Had yesterday morning's heavy fog persisted, for safety reasons the fleet would have just started off Fort Adams and headed straight into the ocean.
