Lunchtime Photo

A few months ago I posted a picture of the Vincent Thomas Bridge at moonrise/sunset. The reflected sunlight made for an interesting shot, but I had a complaint: “Sadly, the bridge isn’t lighted, so it doesn’t make a good nighttime picture.”

As it turns out, I just wasn’t patient enough. The bridge is lighted, but not until it gets a little darker. So here’s a picture of the Vincent Thomas Bridge at night, nestled above the always bright and busy lights of the Port of Los Angeles.

POSTSCRIPT: For any locals wondering why the location of this picture is labeled Wilmington, it’s because the best view of the bridge is from the Knoll Hill Little League field, which happens to be just inside the city limits of Wilmington. My picture captions always tell you where I took the picture from and the date it was taken.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
