Portland, Oregon-based photographer and visual artist Jim Kazanjian is like the M. C. Escher of architectural photography.

Reno, Nevada-based photographer Art Domagala was recently involved with an interesting photo shoot in which size and scale played a bit part. He was tasked with photographing bridge inspectors working on the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, officially known as the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.
