Why, yes I did—see the photos at my Tumblr site here and here.

See also the photos of this kind fellow who was shooting that morning, too.

The bridge is an inspiring sight—an engineering wonder and an architectural work of art wrapped up in one very big, very orange package. What I didn’t know until I posted the photos last night was that one of the engineers who worked on the bridge was Kaichi Watanabe, one of the first Japanese to study engineering in the UK. There’s quite a famous image of him demonstrating the cantilever principle with the two chief engineers, which you can see at the linked Wiki page.
