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. (with apologies to Jose Ortega y Gasset who was talking about "the intellectual man" in his 1930 book, Revolt of the Masses)

Greetings Sunpixx

Glad you're back, and in full swing, David!
Hope the trip went well, and we'll see some photos soon.
'Spooky'? Perhaps it has a 'cemetery' feel to it? It's actually just standing in our park, and is rather small, ~5'. That's how it is sometimes - framing an object, taking it out of context, adding angle, fog, dramatic entourage, and it becomes something with life of it's own..
I've recovered, thank you, (and Penny's comment helped also)).
You did a good 'job' of reviewing, as always - a pleasure. Thank You! B.

Ah - no, Tom - that's about something else - more sad and scary, than that green Halloween monster from the other picture.

Maybe you're right, Matthias - there is something medieval in it, at first glance. Thank you!

Thank you Bellissimo - I totally agree with your thoughts on the subject - bridges probably are the most 'photogenic' of all things human build, and bridge engineering is at times mind boggling! Without 'building bridges' (n all senses) progress is unthinkable.

Yes, Penny, art+engineering (often) = bridge, and this is one of the finest, happy you put it under 'Love" :)
