Yipee! I get to be the first to post some bridge pictures. However, I will be breaking the rule about it being taken AFTER you post the challenge. And when I break a rule I break it BIG time!!!! This weekend I was cleaning out my mother's home up in MI and came across my dad's box of slides. Dad passed away in 1985 and these hadn't been seen in the last 34 years. I got home to TN, scanned the slides and these two were of bridges in MI from around 1965. Look at how awesome the colors, especially the blue sky, are still so beautiful. I did absolutely no touch up work.

Angie, this is a wonderful challenge. We have some great bridges in our area, so as soon as I figure out how to upload pics from my new little Polaroid P&S camera, I will go out and do some shooting. Love your wooden bridges!

PJill, I am so glad you shared these photos with us, even though you broke the challenge rules.........rules are made to be broken, right? The first thing I noticed was how clear and crisp the colors were. They must have been stored right!

Default Bridges...

This has gotten my attention. I will be riding in to Montreal tomorrow, see if I can get a pic then, well not while driving...

Angie, just love those little wooden bridges, the covered one reminds me of course of The Bridges of Madison County. Great book, actors that portrayed the roles, and the bridge too.

Jill, I suppose some rules are made to be broken, and this was worth it. I love the first one where the sky is soooo blue. Terrific memories for you, thanks for sharing girls.

Hoping to get a few in by wednesday. See ya, will keep popping in to have a look at the new pics.

I love this!

What great photos so far.

I just go back yesterday from Toronto/Niagara Falls with lots of photos. Here is my photo of the Friendship Bridge that spans across the Niagara River between NY and Canada.

Princess: This is so much fun for me! (See my picture of the bridges further down on this thread to see what I am talking about.) But this is almost the same picture as yours except it was taken somewhere around 1960. It's another of my dad's slides. Look at the greenery behind the bridge where the building is sitting.

OK, I think I am done hijacking with 'old, old pictures' that I just scanned. Unless someone starts another thread about something in my dad's treasures!

We went to the Spokane Falls and Nine Mile Dam the other day, which was fun!! And that meant lots of bridges! Here are two pictures.

I also took some pictures of Sarah in the park the other day.

So not much has changed in Niagara. I love looking at old photos.

Love seeing all those different bridges. I cross one every day on the way to work, and there are a lot of photos of it in my little pocket camera. But maybe I'll pack my bigger camera this morning and hope the tide is right for a good picture.

Diana and PJill, I love seeing those Niagara Bridge photos. The nickname is friendship bridge, but the official name is the Rainbow Bridge, and you can well imagine why...........whenever the sun shines, there is a rainbow. I have lots of photos in my archives of this bridge, as it is only a two hour drive from my place and a 'go-to' place whenever we have visitors.
Hannah, great photos!
Sabrina, I am looking forward to seeing some 'Irish' bridges!
Mine are hopefully coming up in the next post.

Here are my photos. Number one is what is called a 'bowstring' bridge and we have a number of them in our area. They are getting old and needing repair, but to replace them would cost a lot more. The second photo is of the West Montrose covered bridge, about a 20 minute drive from my house, and another 'go to' place for visitors. It is found in Mennonite country and you can often see horse and buggy going through.

Since Jill already broke the rules, I guess I can too, sorry Angie. I just really loved how this photo turned out. It was taken last summer. The DesMoines river was at flood stage. I loved how the bridge was reflected in the river. What do you think? Was it worth breaking the rules?

Ina, that bowstring bridge photo is awesome.

Hannah, neat photos. I like the movement of the water in the first one.

Jill and Diana those photos of the friendship bridge are really fun to look at. It was neat to see the two different views broken by time.


Angie, I love both of your bridge photos, but I really like the second one. The colors are so rich looking

I had a brain cramp when I wrote Friendship Bridge. All the maps say Rainbow Bridge. You would think I would have remembered that after a 10 hr drive there and my boys (including dh) asking me a bazillion questions about Niagara/Toronto.

I took some of my students mini golfing today and this little bridge was over one of the holes. Not a great photo but the bridge was cute.

Rory O'More Bridge
Sean Heuston Bridge
Two from me.
There's a bit of info about them here - http://mymiscellany-cook22.blogspot....6/bridges.html.
If the weather stays fine, I'll try to take a couple of better pictures of the James Joyce bridge tomorrow. I think I'd have been better without the wideangle, and taking a couple of zoomed-in shots of it.

My two favourite bridges are too far - one is in the south-west near my dad, and the other is in the midlands in a big country estate. If I could paint, I'd paint both those.

Bit of a bummer that for a rare occasion I'd upped my ISO to 400 and forgot to change it back till halfway through this morning .

That covered bridge is amazing - we don't have anything like that over here at all. I've heard of them, of course, but I don't think I've ever seen such a good picture so I could really understand what they are.

Wow! I loved the Rory. The clarity was awesome. (I think it was the Rory, anyway it was the blue one.)

Default Beautiful pictures girls

I love every bridge I saw here tonight, from the small ones from Ina to the bigger ones from Sabrina. Marilynn, yours is very beautiful, it looks like it's on the water. I didn't make it to Montreal, got a change of plan, will see if I can find a little bridge tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing such wonderful pictures.

The first one is at EPCOT. The Iluminations globe was making it's way to the center of the lake and the drawbridge was up to let it through. Very cool!
The second one is from when I went on a scrapbooking retreat and this cute little covered bridge was plopped in the middle of nowhere!

Sorry for the flood of bridges from me. Well - a city divided by a river is bound to have a lot. I took more yesterday afternoon of two different ones along the river, but this is actually a bridge (of sorts) at Christchurch Cathedral. I was meeting DH in town last night nearby, and I'd said I'd like to go and take a photo of the arch over the road between the two sides of the cathedral. Blank looks - what arch, it's miles away. He's only driven under it countless times, and it was 5 minutes walk tops. But once we got there he was very helpful about suggesting different viewpoints, and waiting at several pedestrian cosssings to try out his different views.
Local council and European parliament elections today, hence all the posters.

Oh look at all these beautiful bridges!!! And I just love covered bridges! There are a ton in PA and I'm always hunting them out when we visit my parents there. Guess I'm gonna have to get out the wet noddle and start cracking it at you rule breakers!!

I love bridges, too. This is the view from our home on the Missouri River. The Meridian Bridge connecting South Dakota and Nebraska is just a short distance down river from our home. It's one of my favorite subject to photograph. I love everyone's photos. They are all great!!

What a fantastic sunset picture. I never had trouble with sunsets in film photography, still struggling with them in digital.

Aspengirl, I love your sunset photo. Love how you caught the sun just over the bridge and the clouds add a wonderful dimension to this photo.

Sabrina, I'm not an expert, but here are few tips I go by. Most digital cameras have a sunset mode. Then try to get an early sunset photo, rather than a late one, as the camera always makes the scene darker than what you see. The best time to take a sunset picture is when there are clouds in the sky, but you already know that.

Thanks for the kind words about my bridge photo. It's actually a sunrise. I was heading to work, saw the beautiful sky and went back inside to get my camera. I took it with my P&S Canon, but have a new DSLR I'm anxious to try on the sunrises, too. I took bridge photos in all four seasons and had them framed by my DH for Christmas. He loved his gift!

Default New Bridge

A new bridge near my home. Nothing exciting really so I just tried to use that 'rule of thirds'.....
