Introducing another collection: Bridges!
Living most of my life on the Canadian Prairies, in cities straddling rivers, I found bridges mostly a hazard to car navigation. Bottlenecks. Choke points. Pretty? Yeah I guess so, but a nuisance, you know?
Travelling near the ocean – various oceans – has given me a new appreciation for these engineering marvels, too often viewed only as we zoom by on the Interstate. Bridges that span big water. Bridges that soar above seagoing vessels.
The usual photographic challenge? Finding a place to stand! A place far enough back that you can see the thing in situ, in its context. Or a place close enough that you can see its features in detail. Or a place different enough that you can see it from an interesting perspective. And always, a place without distracting elements in the field of view.
But hey, sometimes it works out well enough, as in these recent photos of the Bridge of the Americas, soaring over the mouth of the Panama Canal.
