Week 42: Bridge

This week’s challenge entry was made possible thanks to Paco.  Paco, my point and shoot camera.  I haven’t been in the “mood” lug that kahuna around so I changed it up a  bit.  Paco and I took a short walk down the Riverfront, taking in the sights and sounds of the Ohio River and I worked him over.

Looking at the images on the computer, I was able to narrow it down quickly.  Two shots held my interest.  And with a little editing, I got what I had hoped for.

Here is my bridge:

Week 42: Bridge

I really like two things about this shot.  The first is how industrial it is.  I have a hard time photographing buildings and structures.  They never really turn out the way I want but I think this works pretty well.  The composition is off-center and there’s so much texture.  I dig.  But that glare/flare/sunburst seals the deal for me.  I love a good sun flare.  That’d be the second thing I like about this shot.

I’m excited to see what everyone else shot.  I imagine there are some big bridges, some small bridges, some middle-of-the-road bridges…  made of metal, stone, wood… endless possibilities.  I will be heading over to our flickr group immediately.  Next week (week 43!!) we’ll see some “button” photos – so many ways to interpret this one.  I hope we have a lot of participants!

jasmandii - You definetely sealed the shot with the sun glare! It looks Almost Nostalgic! I can see myself in the back of a convertible looking up as the car goes under the bridge and probably listening to a song by Norah Jones or something jazzy and soft.

Love it!

Joan Nova - I had a lot of bridge photos in my photo library. It was hard to choose so I submitted 3.
