A couple of years back I started  building  a  suspension in Imagine mostly
because I thought doing the cables  would  be an interesting exercise. Once
that was done I  kind  of  lost  interest  for  a  while  and  left it half
finished.
[Somewhere in the interim I got  contacted  by  Patrick Henz who asked if I
had any interesting  objects  to  share,  so  I  let  him play with my half
finished bridge. You can see the result (with his colouring) in pix/henz as
fommisc01.jpg.]
Recently (Spring 2002) I started  working  on  it again, mostly adding side
cables. (They are not there in Patrick's  version, which is probably why he
chose to focus on the middle of the bridge... ;-))
This is just a test render I made after  finishing the cables. It is called
"Albatross" simply because this is a kind of twisted bird's eye view of the
bridge, so I thought of a big  bird.  Apologies  to  any collectors of bird
pictures who got misled, but that's what the short description is for!
Anyway, it could also be seen as a reference  to the unpainted state of the
object (Albus is Latin for white).  Guess  I'll  start on the colouring and
texturing next. Anyone happen to have a good asphalt texture lying around?
