Bridge

My mom used to drag me around to look at amazing bridges, all over southern Europe when I was a little girl. To begin with I didn’t like it so much (it was usually hot and you had to walk long distances,) but after a while I caught the bug as well.

The theme of this week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post is Bridge. Today’s post is actually not from northern California, but from our neighboring state Nevada. The photo above is the bridge at Hoover Dam. The day I walked out on this bridge it was very windy. Most people stayed at the beginning at the bridge, snapped a few quick photos of Hoover Dam, and quickly walked back. Not me. I spend more than an hour on the windy bridge, admiring Hoover Dam from every possible angle. I completely lost track of time.

This is the view of Hoover Dam that I admired. It is a spectacular place. I haven’t had time to indulge in the other entries of the photo challenge yet, but I am planning on doing it tonight. It’s very possible that I post another entry to this challenge, since bridges  is something that fascinates me. A bridge is in many ways a gateway to my imagination. Do you feel the same way? If you’re participating in the photo challenge, feel free to post a link to your entry in a comment.

 

Love,

Ms Zen

        1. Thank you! Sundial Bridge is well worth a visit…or two…or three 🙂 I admire Santiago Calatrava’s personal style of architecture. I love the “City of Arts and Sciences”, in Valencia (Spain.) I think that is one of his most precious gifts to the world.
