Hello, and welcome to Day 6 of me hosting my first Photo Challenge.
This Photo Challenge is BRIDGING THE GAP.
The idea is to post photos you’ve taken, or you are in, showing a bridge. Tell us something about the bridge, and/or what was happening when you took the photo. Of course, link back here, and leave a message, as well as a link on Mr. Linky, so we can all come have a look at what you've left for us.
Go ahead... think outside the box! I dare ya!
This bridge is in the small town where my Mom & one of my sisters live, the town where I spent many years before moving to where I am now. This is the 'new' bridge. I believe it was built in 1985 and it's the 5th bridge in that location.
I have a book here that I borrowed from my sister some time ago and have never taken the time to read it... gotta read it and get it back to her really soon. Anyway, there is a very interesting bit about bridges that I did read, and there are pictures of 3 of the old bridges. I wanted to type it all here and photograph the photographs to share with you, but just don't have the time right now. I have to get around the world to visit BRIDGING THE GAP participants and reply to the comments you have all left me in the last few days. I wish they'd left the old bridge up to use as a pedestrian bridge, though it was no longer keeping up to the growth in traffic and weight of trucks and such.
I took these in September 2005, when at a Music In The Park afternoon. Beautiful day for it. I sat there with my spinning wheel, spinning while listening, then took some photos.
By the way.... if you have left me a comment on my BRIDGING THE GAP posts, you can now go read the replies I've left. I got a bit behind there, but am now caught up. Now, to get over and visit the rest of the posts other participants have made.
This is set to auto post at midnight my time.
