Photo Challenge #18 - Bridges

Ok, now you have to be kind! Please remember that we live in a rather rural part of Colorado.....no city scapes here with big, beautiful bridges like you would find in Melbourne, Australia or San Fransisco, California!! We like to think we have our own kind of charm, which at times might not be quite as obvious! I'm really trying hard to share those parts of why we like living here, through the pictures I post on this blog.

So when I set out to look for bridges to photograph this weekend, it wasn't quite as easy to come up with ideas right off the bat, but we did manage some!

The first two pictures were taken just across the road from where we live. A few years ago, some people put in a private campground. It's very nice and many people (with big, expensive motor homes) come and spend months on end there! They have a little pond with a water wheel and a foot bridge......

And this one is a repeat of several weeks ago! I also used it for the "Symmetry" challenge! Hey, let's recycle when we can, right? This bridge is at a lake about 10 miles to the north of where we live.
As we were out traveling the backroads today, we came upon this cute little footbridge. The people who own the house had put it in to access the road, from their yard, across the irrigation ditch!! Their driveway was just a boring culvert "bridge" crossing the ditch....certainly without the charm that this bridge has!!

Thanks for having a peek! I look forward to seeing what everyone else came up with!! Have a great week!!

These photos are absolutely charming! I love these bridges, so much more interesting than one in some big ol'city. Here in Bangkok we have some giants...huge monstrosities, that are nice to look at but are there for a purpose and look nothing like these charmers! Now, you have to remember that one of my favorite ALL TIME movies is Bridges of Madison County! Got any covered ones in your state?
