Inspiration Avenue

Bridges ...
 Bridges can be architecturally beautiful or symbolically meaningful.  I love bridges and never really thought about why ... Some, like this very old railroad bridge, are just beautiful to look at and some, like the bridge over the expressway, I would probably never notice if someone didn't say "take a picture of a bridge".   But, if you dip into philosophy, you will find poetry and prose alike singing the praise of, or suffering the pain of, a symbolic bridge in life.  This is not a simple subject and could lead us in many directions ... hopefully to the other side of an imagined obstacle.  I think the bridge is well worth exploring.

Cross Over ... Life is Good


  1. I love bridges...of all kinds. Your photos are just different!

    I especially love #1 as it draws you into the picture!

    Great job this week!

  2. Your bridges are wonderful. I especially love the first one. We have some like it here, next town over. Reminds me of the cobblestone streets of when I was young.

    You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. Fantastic bridges! I especially like the first one.

  4. Well, you know I love bridges. I took several pictures of them on my Road Trip. I have shared some, and will be sharing more over time. These are great.

  5. You observation of bridges being very symbolic is right on. This could be said of any portal I suppose but bridges are much more meaningful to me. To enter a doorway is to move from one area immediately to another. To cross a bridge takes a conscious decison to leave behind something familiar and transverse a longer path to the unfamiliar. This was a beautiful post. I always look forward to your insight and inspiration.

  6. Just like you, I love bridges as well. Your photos here show a beautiful variety, and such neat processing! I enjoyed your post very much.
