  1. This week's subject is "Bridges" - the kind that get us over obstacles, that is. I haven't seen any here for a while and not many in the Café generally yet I know a number of you live near some pretty impressive, even spectacular, ones. I also hope to see more pics of those wonderful enclosed types that you have over there in the USA. I don't think I need to post examples but I will just put up this one. It was "the bridge" at Pooley Bridge at the northern end of Ullswater but it is no more, having been destroyed by the heavy floods of a couple of years ago.

    Usual rules apply - up to three pics per post and all to be taken over the next week. Have fun!

    As I will be traveling starting tomorrow, there will be many bridges that I'll be crossing on my way to my destination. I'll make sure to stop at a few to get some shots! Love the theme, Warthman!
     
  3. That would be great Lyndee. I look forward to seeing them, especially if you come across any of those "Bridges of Madison County" types. Enjoy your travels.

    Great theme warth man! Now I just have to find time to get out and shoot! :)
     
  5. Thanks Paul. I know you usually manage to do so, and creatively too.

    Quick snap from today.

  7. That looks pretty substantial West and I like the mono treatment. Great start! I should be able to get out and about tomorrow. Around here the bridges are on a much smaller scale.

    This is a pretty ugly connector in an industrial part of town. I think the mob uses the location for body disposal :cool:

    Looks like a huge pair of overpasses.

    Nice close up.

    I too, agree with the B&W treatment.

    Down memory lane, Victoria's Blue Bridge ... it's been torn down and replaced just a while ago.

  12. Hmmm, so Walter's shot is not CS604 compliant :eek:

    Nice example, Walter, but was it shot during the current CS period?

    Sadly, the customary water boarding may be necessary.
     
  15. That's our gig. You guys up north have to figure out your own torment!

    A bridge to the future – OUL, the Lancaster branch of Ohio University.

    A bridge from the past – a repurposed and refurbished covered bridge that sits astride a stream behind OUL. [I had hoped to get a better shot of the bridge, but the university’s landscaping efforts have all but obscured the view.]

    My apologies. I accept my punishment. :)
     
  18. Just punishment will be a contemporary bridge photo. I've gotta find some too . . . . :rolleyes::D
     
  19. It was a nice pic anyway Walter. Looking forward to at least three replacements! :)
     
  20. Nice shots Bob and a lovely setting. I wish we had more of the covered variety here but they would probably end up covered in graffiti and used for dodgy purposes. It's the main reason I really like to see your versions.
