I love bridges, love photographing them, but this hasn’t always been true. I spent most of my adult life in fear of them. I would either avoid them or have an anxiety attack if I had to drive over one. During my 2-year road trip I had more than enough opportunities to overcome that fear. Eventually I found myself driving over them, then turning around and driving over it again, then again. It was exciting to have overcome that fear. Needless to say I had to not only cut many photos from this challenge but I’ve decided to create two entries. The First are the bridges we drive over, of concrete and steel. Tomorrow I’ll cover those made of stone and wood.
Bridges of Concrete and Steel
Dam at Jackson Lake, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Jekyll Island Bridge, Georgia
Brooklyn Bridge, New York…New York??? Nope, It’s Las Vegas, Nevada
Tennessee River Bridge, Natchez Trace Parkway, Alabama
Pecos River Bridge, Texas
Seven Mile Bridge, Somewhere In the Florida Keys
This was actually taken a few years before my long road trip, and yes I actually drove the entire 90 miles to Key West and yes I was full of anxiety. But I did it afraid and that’s what matters!
Penobscot Narrows Bridge, Maine
Mississippi River, Vicksburg Mississippi
Yantic Falls Bridge, Connecticut
