What’s the Oddball Reflection over Hoover Dam Bridge?

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo of the Week Is…

Your guess is as good as mine. That’s not true because, after much pondering, I figured it out. The bridge appears to be sitting down on the job. Obviously, we are looking through the looking-glass. Is that Manny skydiving in the reflection? Yes? No? If no, then what?

The bridge appears to be sitting down on the job. Obviously, we are looking through the looking-glass. Is that Manny skydiving in the reflection? Yes? No? If no, then what?

We visited Hoover Dam in September of 2015, and I snapped this picture of the beautiful Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge as we drove across on U.S. 93. It looms nearly 900 feet over the Colorado River and is 1,900 feet long, the largest of its type. Built to bypass the original two-lane road across the dam, it handles 14,000 cars and many pedestrians which cross from Nevada into Arizona and back each day. In June of this year, the bridge closed when an unnamed woman tried to jump from it.

“O’Callaghan was a former governor of Nevada and former executive editor of the Las Vegas Sun. Tillman was a professional football player for the Arizona Cardinals who joined the Army in 2002 and was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.”

So what’s your vote? Oddball? or Not?

Here are some more pictures of it.

  1. Looking at it closely, I think you are taking the photograph with a smart phone or tablet MVBFM and the four point lights are the reflection off of a finger ring. But I could be wrong, it could be Manny skydiving 😉 ❤

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
