I stopped on the bridge where Heritage Road crosses over Edwards Run the other day to snap a few photos. The details of the wood railing cried out “take my picture, no mine, no mine…”
After parking my bike, I crossed to the other side of the bridge to check out the light. The top of one of the heavy wood support posts caught my eye. The softer portions of the wood grain had weathered away leaving a three dimensional etching. I got as close as possible with my 35mm lens hand held. The textures and tones come out so well in B&W.
Here’s a close in shot I took a few weeks ago and published for monochrome weekend. It’s the large bolt head and surrounding wood on the hefty horizontal members. I show this again to preview the next shot.
I leaned out over the end of the railing for this one. Not to worry, I had my camera strap around my neck. This is a close-up of the other end of one of the large bolts showing the nut and washer. This is another hand held shot with my 35mm lens.
This image puts it all in perspective and gives you an idea of context. I took this picture several weeks ago and published it for Weekend Reflections on June 11. As you can see, I had plenty of room to park my bike and not worry about getting run over.
