Put on some pearls and you'll be ready for formal wear
The cocoon looks to be coming off (on purpose this time) our beloved Murray Morgan bridge but with a surprise. That old guy is looking pretty dapper in his new black facade. According to the City's website phase 1 of the rehab project will be under way for more than another year (with a more substantial phase 2 still to come) so perhaps this won't be his final coat of color. Still, I have to say, I'm a fan of Murray's Goth look for the upcoming holiday and it's great to see progress restoring him to a useful state again.

|They believe the bridge was originally black so that color was chosen and here to stay.|

|Loving it! Thx for chiming in Jake. It's a damn fine look if I do say so myself.

|Looks kind of like a giant concert stage with truss rigging overhead. Maybe a future venue for a cool concert.|

|I like the black color but silver doesn't show accumulated dirt so much. Ever owned a black car?|

|The black is very period- I like. (Besides, black will show when you need to clean the bird dropping off of it...)|

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
