Sepia Saturday - Bridges

Here is this week's Sepia Saturday Suggestion

So today, for Sepia Saturday, LOST GALLERY will review a page on the subject of bridges!

One of the favorite sites for tourist photography is a bridge. Famous or not, there are some very picturesque bridges and environs that photographers love. First, here are a few rescued photographs OF a bridge.

This looks very sturdy. I doubt it would ever fall down.
Someone should write a song about it.

Also a bridge is sometimes the setting for a snapshot of friends and family. There is probably little reason other than the view from a bridge is often rather scenic. Here are a few examples of photographs ON a bridge.

She figured it was maybe because her jodhpurs were too tight.

Here is an unusual one. From a rescued box of otherwise uninteresting family vacation slides comes this very intriguing photograph.

It is a foot bridge occupied by a young girl in a costume and guarded by a troll.

I wonder ...

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

  1. Bridges inspire the camera. Maybe because of the water\chasm underneath and the illusion of flying or defying gravity.

    1. Thanks Mike Brubaker. You are right. A bridge on the scene, out comes the box camera.

  2. Wonderful collection. What people get up to on bridges! You do realise that the ‘troll’ was probably her grandfather? :)

    1. Thanks Little Nell. You know, I think it must have been a grandparent also! It is a rather odd costume for the little girl. It makes it seem like a fairy tale setting.
