Bridges and Roads
After spending quite a bit of time looking through a windshield in my life, I’ve seen a lot of highway. The most basic description of roads are an easy means to get somewhere without having to walk straight through the woods, but roads themselves can be the subject of attention too, camera attention. People often say to enjoy the journey, so these galleries are a rambling photographer’s way of doing just that.
My favorite is a winding two lane blacktop out through the mountains or cutting across beautiful farmland, so I’m often taking the scenic route. Four lanes are great for getting somewhere quickly and often go through some good scenery, but it’s too darned fast. It’s when you exit and drive through the countryside more slowly and close in that you experience better, more satisfying stuff. The slower pace simply feels better, too. If you want to enjoy your journey, slow it down.
Roads can’t take us from A to B without having to go over something, which of course takes bridges. All kinds of bridges…stone, wood, iron, and concrete, or a combination of those. Some are rustic and slow, others are large and sleek, and a few are worth taking a picture.
All the images are available on paper, canvas, or metal.
