St. John’s Bridge


The St. John’s bridge opened in 1931 and spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. It was designed by David Steinman, who also designed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. On the east side of the bridge is Cathedral Park, which I visited on a rainy December day.

On the west side of the bridge is Forest Park, which makes for excellent photography. I love how it looks like the bridge just disappears into the trees. The Gothic architecture of the bridge towers is stunning. Steinman definitely knew what he was doing. This photo has a very distinct ‘mood’.


Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. The St. John’s Bridge is a magnificent piece of architectural engineering. I am going to be in Portland for a week this spring and look forward to finally getting my chance to photograph it.
