I for one will never pound another nail into another tree, ever again.
Something got into the water source. The design it made had to be photographed!
A beautiful cat...out for a walk with his family. It's somewhat rare to see a cat on a leash, as most that are outside are free roaming. Or as in my household, true 100% housecats that never go outside. This cat was so sweet, let me pet him. And then he posed for me.
It won't get very far!
I believe the original homestead of this property was named Long. I have no idea who this person could have been.
It's that beautiful shade of orangish red that was pretty common in the late 1700's - early 1800's - perhaps colonial red?
The bridge naturally does not look as attractive as it did back when it was first built - all bright and shiny. It's old and rusted, and has graffiti all over it. But I love seeing this bridge. Since I was a child, I've always been fascinated by it's design.
And the boom part of it, that would raise the bridge was only utilized a couple of times. They never used the bridge for the intention of why it was built. Go figure.
I noticed when I'm editing the pictures (cropping, changing exposure levels), the quality starts going down. Why is that? The background tends to get "fuzzy".
This is the south span of the Grand Island Bridge that connects Tonawanda NY to Grand Island NY. I took some pictures of it, maybe a month ago. Believe it or not, the Conservation (hiking) trail that I am section hiking, actually goes over the bridges. Isn't that weird?
