Bridge To Somewhere


What is it with me and bridges? Might it be I’m looking to cross some kind of personal divide? I’ll have to ring up my friend, a disgruntled former tarot card reader who lives in Houston,  for his take on the issue.

  2. Hey Louis, good to hear from you again.
    Great processing on the bridge. We are very impressed with how you are able to avoid halos (if there is a secret – we would like to know). We try our hand at HDR but are clearly not up you level (http://framedandshot.com/2008/10/23/after-the-storm-iv/).
    Looking forward to more great stuff from you.

  3. Louis..I relly like this one, it has such a surreal feel to it. The color is very good also. Great shot/s all around.

  4. I love bridges! Have traveled over the one above a total of 4 times. My husband and I were full time RVer’s for eleven years, traveling all over North America. In that time I never met a bridge I didn’t love. I would beg Lew to travel hundreds of miles for the opportunity to cross a certain bridge.

    We kept a daily journal of our travels with a multitude of “word pictures”, but never took one picture with a camera. I believe ordinary people become so wrapped up in taking pictures of what they are seeing that they fail to “see” what they are looking at. So from time to time we would purchase a postcard or two to paste in our journal.

    I enjoy you site. Brenda Bowers http://brendabowers.wordpress.com

  7. Impressive work, Louis!

    We all have our specialties and oddities as photographers. I am, as you know, fond of trees and front doors. Maybe you should also bring up my case with your friend? I’m sure there is an explanation.
