It has been awhile since I have found a new spot to travel down...not knowing where it leads.
The rustic red rafters, of the bridge, caught my eye, before I saw the narrow road.
I pulled over, in the grass, to see what might be under the small bridge.
There is a large ravine, that probably fills with water when it rains.
Looking down the road, you can see the sharp right turn.
It's certainly not a famous bridge, with centuries of history. Standing there, in the quiet of the country, it reminded me of a poem by Emily Dickinson.
"Faith.... is the Pierless Bridge supporting what we see unto the scene that we do not".
Nice photos! I love bridges of all kinds. Hope you have a happy week.ReplyDelete
It's funny how all these years living on the prairie...and I missed this one.Delete
I love those lines from Emily Dickinson. Kelly gave me a treasured book of her poems that brings me comfort; she probably knew they would. She actually attending Mount Holyoke, where both my girls graduated from. I love the bridge, but moreover, I love your thoughts, XOXOReplyDelete
Thank you Susan....That's very interesting little fact. I have loved her poems since high school.Delete
crossing bridges is always an adventure, I like the look of this one, simple and strong, you've taken lovely photos.ReplyDelete
There is a lot of in-between-the-line thoughts, when I think about bridges. I actually walked across this one, and then, back to my truck.Delete
I'm phobic about bridges, and avoid them wherever possible, but your photographs are as beautiful as ever.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Scarlet....I try to show the world bits and pieces, of what I see living in my part of Texas. I'm also sharing my wonderful holiday in Scotland.Delete
Nice shots! I like old bridges, especially rural or mountain bridges.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Brian....I loved your latest photo of snow. Your photos are exceptional !!Delete
This is a great, old bridge! Looks like something from my area.ReplyDelete
I was thinking the same thing....your blog has so many great rural photos.Delete

i like things with a story & anything with rust has a story to tell, but sometimes there is no one to tell that story so you must make up your own.ReplyDelete

That's a curiously intriguing sequence - like it's the beginning of something new and you don't know where it's going to take you. Loved your recent series on Skye too - lovely shots. Thanks for your comments on A Bit About Britain!ReplyDelete
