Quiet Bridge

When I think of bridges, it’s not the spectacular tributes to human ingenuity that first come to mind.

It’s the old wooden bridges that I see.

There is something quiet and inviting about them.

They seem to be waiting for me to stroll across them.

Bridge to Nowhere

Do you remember the big hoopla over a “bridge to nowhere” in the news several years ago?

This bridge reminded me of that.

It may go nowhere; however it is much more affordable than the one in the news.

Also, in my opinion, it has more character.

Kansas Waterfall

When you think of waterfalls, I bet you don’t think of Kansas.

Take a look at this Kansas waterfall.

It did have a little human help, but I think it counts.

Sister Bridges

Why would someone build two bridges close together?

There doesn’t seem to be enough traffic to justify two bridges.

Maybe one bridge was lonely and they built a sister bridge for companionship.

Appreciate a Snow Storm?

If you have no need to use roads or sidewalks, you may find much to appreciate about a snow storm. Which of these can you appreciate about snow storms? 

  • The sense of quiet and tranquility that occurs when snow covers everything.
  • Recreational opportunities such as sledding and building snow people. 
  • Opportunities for some nice photographs (my choice)!

Certainly, there can be too much of a good thing.

Let’s just talk about those times when we’ve found a happy medium.

Bridge Perspective

It’s fun to look at bridges from different perspectives. This gave me the sensation of looking off into the distance and imaging the possibilities. What does the future hold?

Ride the River

This scene reminded me of the J.J. Cale song, “Ride the River.”

Floatin’ down that old river, boy 

All my worries far behind 

Floatin’ down that old river, boy 

Leave old memories way behind 

Yesterday is slowly fadin’ 

All my life I’ve been waitin’ 

For this time.

Tree Sculpture

Have you ever looked up at the clouds and seen shapes?

For me, nature is a form of art.

As with other forms of art, we see different things when we look at them.

To me, this tree looks like an elephant.

My Aunt Pam sees a buzzard.

What do you see when you look at this tree?

Low-Traffic Bridge

I’m fascinated with bridges of all shapes and sizes.

What I like about this one is the sound of my feet on the wooden slats, the trees all around me creating interesting shadows, and the low-traffic providing me with some quiet time.

Waterfall Delights the Senses

I’ve always liked the way a photo can capture a waterfall.

I look at this and remember the sound of the water splashing, the sight of the sunlight dancing off the water droplets, and the smell of the damp rock.

Waterfalls delight my senses.

For a bonus, I got to see a charming sculpture of a boy sitting on the rock.

Overall, this was a pleasant photo outing.
