I caught this photo of a Metro 180 or 181 bus crossing the Arroyo Seco Bridge in Pasadena before sunset on Wednesday.
I had been wanting to shoot the bridge from this spot on Arroyo Boulevard that offers a view straight north toward the bridge and the San Gabriel Mountains. It was exceptionally clear out Wednesday after the latest storm blew through — all I had to do was set up my camera on a tripod and use Nextrip on my iPhone to see when the next bus would rumble over the bridge; the 180, 181 and 780 all cross the bridge on Colorado Boulevard. I used a telephoto lens at 200mm to help the mountains appear closer to the bridge.

People who grew up in Pasadena or have lived there for decades
would agree with Just a Person and call it the Colorado Street Bridge.
We can’t forget that it is also known as “Suicide Bridge.”
The bridge is generally called the “Colorado Street Bridge).
Hi Just a Person;
It’s referred to as both Arroyo Seco bridge and Colorado Street bridge locally.
