Richmond 9th Street Bridge

  • Sep 14, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I have seen many interesting images of this bridge. The 9th Street Bridge, Rt. 60, has a pedestrian walkway that runs the length of the bridge. The bridge crosses the James River and has three lanes of traffic on both sides of the walkway. I have never been but I have wanted to go for a while. There should be plenty of room for anyone who wants to come.

We will meet at the corner of 10th and Main Streets. We can get photos of the bridge and then photos of the state capitol building.

    Night time cityscapes are something I've wanted to try. This was a very good introduction for me ... lots of different views to choose from and try different setups.

    I grew up in Richmond. There are lots of interesting places to shoot there.

      So are we going to any additional locations? There were lots of locations that are really close to the 9th street Bridge where we can some great shots. Some of the places that I use to shoot from in that area are the hill that over looks Shockoe Bottom, Chimborazo Park, and Rockets Landing, Manchester Floodwall Walk, Virginia War Memorial, and Carytown.

      We can go to any or all of those. I like to set a general goal and anything else that come up is great!

    As Andy said below the park that I planned to meet at is full of construction so I have changed the meeting place.

    I really was looking forward to going on this trip, wherever we'll meet, but now I have a conflict and am unable to participate. Have fun y'all!

    I was in Richmond last night and walked down to kanawa park. There is construction there so the parking lot is closed. The park itself is full of the homeless. I parked at 10th and Main at the Virginia Capitol. Plenty of street parking and only a few blocks away from the bridge. You may want to rethink the meeting area.

      Thanks for the info. I'll look for another meeting place and post it soon.

    I wish I could attend. Too many miles to travel afterwards.

    I would love to join you but will be out of town.
