8 Arch Bridge


It was hard to get a clear view of this old bridge when I took this picture near the end of last winter. I bet it would be even harder now with all of the leaves.
I'm really glad that Louis la Vache from San Francisco Bay Daily Photo started a the Sunday Bridges meme. It's a great excuse to explore and discover the bridges in this area. Click the link to see bridges from bloggers all over the world.

  2. That bridge has really stood the tests of time. So solid and changeless in this ever-changing universe. I love the repeating elements of the dark arches. I am gaining a new appreciation for these architectural elements seen thru your lens!

  3. What I particularly like above this photo is the tree in the foreground and how it looks in front of the bridge. Makes this beautiful photo even more stunning :) Have a great weekend :)

  4. Hi James! This is a beauty of a bridge, I wonder what colour the stone is. Hint, hint... ;-))

    When you're in Paris this autumn, hop on a train to Versailles!

  5. I really like the structure of this bridge. I know what you mean about the leaves.

    I saw a photo the other day that used the leaves in the forground, and they were out of focus. I was surprised at how well it worked.

  16. Wonderful! Was it full of graffiti?
    I was at an old cement bridge yesterday and grabbed some shots...but it was hard to find a spot without writing on it. I was sad to see that, but I suppose it has an art of its own...

  17. ...and «Louis» is glad you are finding such gems as this bridge to add to the meme! «Louis» is also enjoying your monochrome images here on Something Sighted. You are picking subjects that work very well in monochrome.

  20. Love the pattern! The brige meme is one that I probably won't be a part of, there's hardly any bridges in Tucson. And those that we have are very boring, straight concrete bridges with nothing but sand underneath them!

  21. Drat, I keep forgetting this meme. I love bridges too and we have some great ones here in PA.

    The zoo is Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown.
