So because I am an Internet n00b sometimes I didn’t know about the whole street view feature of Google maps. So I was browsing around Portland mostly because it was the first place that I happened to click on.
So I was checking things out here and there when I came across the Broadway Bridge.
I was all like wow I know this bridge from somewhere!! I have never been to Portland but I knew this bridge very well, it took a moment but I was able to place it in a movie that I saw once.Â After some digging around I found a the movie and confirmed that I was correct.Â (I had no idea that it was filmed in Portland even) the movie in question is called Foxfire (yup the one that you get to see a young Angelina Jolie and her boobs, its too bad about this scene because it is a great movie about the empowerment of women and now that she is super famous people recommend it because she is in it topless not because it is a good movie.Â The same is true with Gia but I digress) and granted I have seen this movie more then once but there is very little about the bridge that would have made it stand out to me! It is a run of the mill steel bridge that is red. Nothing super spectacular about that!
This is the sort of thing that my brain is filled up with. Crazy!Â In Edmonton, I used to be able to tell you from a photo with a spot of an alley in it or a street corner, or anything where it was taken! I am starting to get that way here in Vancouver but there is a great deal more to remember, and more things are changing.
