If this old wooden bridge could talk I am betting it would bemoan the feeling that it is past its usefully prime. I can sense it would lament that fact and say “Time passed me by”. Yet I would argue with this fine old bridge and say it is still very useful.
For one I would point out that it is a reminder of a simpler time, when things were not hurried and rushed. Next I would attest to the fact it was fortunate that the builders built it well, as it has stood the test of time. It is, I must reminded it, a place where other have left their mark, not as vandals, but as people needing to make their mark in time for future reference. And finally I would confirm that it brings joy to many of us who have had the pleasure of its very presence.
Below is my tribute to this very cool and wonderfully bridge, rendered in HDR, from photos I took with my Powershot SX10is.
