After composing yesterday’s entry to the weekly photo challenge, and talking to a couple friends about it, I decided to look through my Bridge Gallery. While looking through my gallery I decided that I wanted to share three of my favorite bridges in Northern California with you. Above is the famous Golden Gate Bridge.
The black and white photo with the little girl in the front, is Sundial Bridge (Redding,) seen from the side, under the bridge. This is a very cool 217ft, cantilever suspension bridge, across the Sacramento River. The sundial actually works!
This is on top of Sundial bridge. I love the green-blue color of the glass, and the smooth contours of the bridge.
This is simply a highway bridge in Napa. I used to do a to of meditating under this bridge, when my daughter was an infant, and I rented a house in the area. I do go back here every once in a while. It has become one of my Zen Zones.
I hope you enjoyed this sample of bridges from my part of California. Have a wonderful day!
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.
