This wasn’t orange. At all. But it is now. So… that happened… I guess.

I couldn’t find the name of this pedestrian / suspension bridge… it’s located near ‘Picnic Island’ in Forest Park, though. And it’s quite bouncy in parts.

I’d love to darken that big flower in the lower right (it’s really competing for attention), but apparently my computer (and thus my Photoshop access, etc.) has moved on to greener pastures. ‘Technology’. Face-palm.
