It might be easier to go out and get a new shot. A relatively quick jog through the files gave me three dozen possible images to use--well, those were the ones I selected to choose from--if I don't go looking up some more. No, actually I have the one that I want to use and I won't go looking for more.
The reason is partly because bridges are incredibly interesting structures--the geometry, the lines, the settings...
If any kid asks why we need to study geometry, just tell them to take a look at a bridge.
The other part of the reason would be that I participated for a couple of years in a monthly meme featuring bridges. You can see some interesting bridges if you visit my Bridges label page.
So I will try to pare the selection down to -- well -- at least fewer than three dozen.
|I am shoveling out the footbridge on the 4th of July. Mt. Rainier National Park|
|Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah|
|Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, Arizona|
|Some of our local bridges: above--the Cable Bridge and below--the Blue Bridge. These connect Kennewick and Pasco, Washington.|
|Remains of an ancient bridge in the Highlands of Scotland.|
|The other side says "Where have you been?" Lincoln, UK|
|Some London Bridges, but not THE London Bridge. It is in Arizona now.|
|This footbridge at Chinook Pass is part of the Pacific Crest Trail. East entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park.|
|Bridge construction--a few years ago near Hoover Dam on the Arizona-Nevada border. Crossing now with the bridge completed is much quicker. We once waited about two hours in traffic to cross on the dam itself.|
|Under the bridge. Isn't this cool--well, it was cool under the bridge. This one (above and below) is in Dunsmuir, California.|
|Golden Gate Bridge|
|Suspension bridge at the Grove of the Patriarchs, Mt. Rainier National Park.|
I will choose between these next two pictures for my header. The area spanned by the Golden Gate Bridge held that name long before the bridge was built. (BTW, if you didn't look through my Bridges label pages, do check out these pictures taken by my in-laws in --I think it was 1936--the bridge opened in 1937.
One of our sons has lived in the Bay Area for about six years. When we visited them in the second place they lived in there, I looked the address up on a map and wondered if there would be a place nearby with a view of the bridge.
Little did I know that the place with the perfect view was their living room.
Others of the headbangers will have some amazing bridge images, but I doubt that any of them will have as many as I do. You can see theirs through the links in my sidebar.
