Bridges... My Town Friday Shoot Out

When I first saw the topic of this weeks shoot out I did not know what the the world to do... around here we have some pretty flat land and the nearest bridge is about 40 miles away... so I pulled a few photos from my back pocket and decided to work with them...

The first photo is of my grand daughter Dorie and my husband who were walking across a small bridge at Cape San Blas beach in Florida. I grew up in this area and we had gone "home" for the first time in 30 years. I was walking behind them and was struck by the notion that they were so different in ages but at that very moment you could see that they were so in tune with each other.






The second photo is a shot of the Swanne River... when I was a child this was the half way point between our house and our grandparents home; we always stopped here and ate lunch or took a break... many people who travel to Florida have never seen this side of the state and believe that Florida is all sand, sea and amusement parks.





And finally, the last shot is looking through the underside of the boardwalk out at the Gulf of Mexico.

The designs made by the underside of the bridge is just excellent. But the first photo of your husband and granddaughter is charming, a beautiful shot.

Excellent! I truly love that first one! Not only bridging the age gap, but also the bridge of memory that each of you will hold of that day. Lovely.
