To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand. This is the sport, the luxury, special to the photographer. The gesture characteristic of this tribe consists in looking at the world with eyes wide open in wonder. Everything in the world is strange and marvelous to well-open eyes. This faculty of wonder leads the photographer through life in the perpetual ecstasy of the visionary. His special attribute is the wonder of the eyes. Hence it was that the ancients gave Minerva her owl, the bird with ever-dazzled eyes.

Wonderful composition & capture. Like - My best regards.

Absolutely artistic!!! - Like + FV Hello from Athens

And now I know the story. There was, indeed, a hotel built near here, shortly after a spring freshet changed the course of the river in 1877 and forced the city to put in a bridge so the mill workers who lived on Water Street could walk to work in the mills on Main Street. A few years later, a hotel was built near the Water Street end of the bridge. Soon, people began calling it the Hotel Bridge. The hotel is long gone, and the Hotel Bridge was closed in 2014, awaiting repairs to make it safe for pedestrians once more.

Another artful catch.

One photo jumped out at me from this location -- yours, of course!
