Do you ever look for themes in your photography? I was surprised to find so many photos of bridges when reviewing pictures I have taken over the years. It wasn’t a deliberate project or a theme; I didn’t set out to photograph different types of bridges in so many different places while traveling. Nevertheless, judging by the number of different bridge photos stored on my computer, I obviously find bridges to be an interesting subject. Let me share a few examples with you.
Here’s one that we walked across on a beautiful spring day with blue skies and chamber of commerce weather! This steel truss pedestrian bridge was formerly a railroad bridge and can be found in NAPA valley.
And, from that pedestrian bridge, there is a view of this bridge. I took this picture just after lunch and I remember enjoying the combination of light and shadows.
“The hardest thing in life to learn is which bridge to cross and which to burn.”
We walked across this suspension bridge in Ferris Provincial Park, Campbellford, Ontario surrounded by autumn colors. It is a 300 foot-long bridge that sways slightly as you walk across it, but it also provides scenic views of the Trent River and the rocky bluffs.
Do you recognize the bridge in this picture? You can see the landmark Tower Bridge in Sacramento from both the California State Capitol building and Raley Field, home of the Sacramento River Rats baseball team. Fun fact: it was painted silver when it was built in the 1930s, but as part of the USA bicentennial celebrations in 1976, it was repainted to match the gold colored cupola of the Capitol building.
I have many more photographs of bridges; but I’ll save them for other blogs.
I’ll also be on the lookout for new interesting bridges to capture; now that I have found out that it is one of my things.

We created an edible Periodic Table from individual frosted cookies when I was visiting my grandkids in Austin, Texas. You can read more about this project on my daughter-in-law’s Cummins Life blog.http://cumminslife.blogspot.com/search?q=periodic+table
