RAMSEY SWING BRIDGE- INSIDE OUT

It's 14/100 Everyone

What is the surprise shot going to be today? Can you guess. I bet you can't(can).


Here we go again! It's time for the obligatory "Cult of Babooshka's Ramsey Swing Bridge" Image.Today we have reached the grand total of 14. The challenge 100 shots
of the same subject at varying angles, times etc. So here you are.


It's taken from the very heart of the bridge(yes they have hearts, minds and souls) the centre of the pathway, underneath the apex of the arc taking in the pathway and the left hand side arch. Taken around noon on a sunny day to create those interweaving shadows. I included a slither of the right hand arch so you can contextualize the width of the pathway. You can see the raised path/sidewalk on the right and the left is the driveway for cars. Small distance isn't it. I went with black and white as the last few have been colour. You also see locals, yes real live people in the distance chatting or perhaps just waiting for me to take the image so not to be any closer to in the frame. Spoilsports. Either way I sneaked them in so ha ha!


I do like to tone things down after skywatch which is click here is that's the one for you.


Thanks for all the techie advice. I had tried word but no it seems it's IE. I've switched to Safari and the line breaks seem to now be in the right place. For now anyway.

So is anyone else photographing the same subject over and over or am I the only nutter?

I really enjoy the bridge photos. It just proves that something that appears to be constant and never-changing can, in fact, be quite varied and "alive". You're on an honourable mission!

Have a great weekend.

You are MAD, but fun and I do learn from you.

Paz said...

Very cool shot! I found myself photographing the same subjects sometimes. ;-)

In photography class we did this with a teacup. Not so many photographs but the same idea. I didn't understand what the tutor meant at first about interpretation and seeing through an image but I do now. The bridge maybe small but the photograph adds to the proportions. Off to see the other 13.

I really do enjoy your bridge pics. I'm a big architecture buff and am especially fond of the lines and symmetry of bridges. I too find myself taking pictures of the same subject over and over. So, no, you are not the only nutter of the bunch.

Awesome shot! Your blog is interesting to read and all the photos is very unique.God bless :)

George said...

Your bridge pictures are so interesting. I'm looking forward to your making it to 100.

Gaelyn said...

I love your swing bridge, but it is a wee bit narrow.

Stacey Huston said...

Beautiful bridge photo. I look forward to the next 86 or more.. thanks for sharing

Suz Broughton said...

I love these kind of self-imposed photo assignment.
You've picked a great subject. This is a beautiful picture.

brilliant composition as always!!

humanobserver said...

This monochrome photo made me speechless....Thank you very much for leaving a comment on my blog...I have also a photo blog.....

angela said...

Hope you're going to get a book out of this..

Maybe it's the bridge itself or the monochrome but this to me has such a 50's feel to it. Reminds me of my childhood..

D said...

Oooh, I agree with angela, your bridge series would be a great book! Lovely perspective and post.

Stan said...

I like your sunset bridge photographs best but this is so imaginative

Eki Akhwan said...

The charm of this bridge is on its various angles you have photographed it from ... I like its geometrical lines and sturdy looking structure in this photo.

The 100 challenge? I like the idea. I may do the same for Villa Isola... (which I see almost everyday.) So far, have got 4 photos.

Tanya said...

Oh I love your swing bridge cult! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Ken said...

My favourite so far.

mkhansen said...

Mid-bridge shot is a great idea. I love the bridge, and I love the 100photos mission. What a strange thought that it couldn't be done!

babooshka said...

There are some strange people about who have no imagination I find.

Awesome.

Bibi said...

I kind of agree with Angela about the '50's look. It makes me think of a bridge that we used for my Lionel train set village that we set up every Christmas when I was a child. Anxious to see all the other shots when they're ready!!

I really love this 'out of 100' series of Ramsey bridge. it has motivated me to take more than a few pictures of the same subject too. I'm looking forward to see all 100.

lisasarsfield said...

Lovely bridge, lovely photo!

So, you have given yourself the challenge of taking 100 photos of this? All different? Good on you!

Have a fantastic christmas:) :) :)

Babooshka - you're so creative! I love this shot. I feel like I'm going over the bridge myself with you! Seasons Greetings from Saudi Arabia!

Mediterranean kiwi said...

i love this shot - the different shades of grey look good here

laxeylass said...

I have another subject for 100 photos! The bridge appears so different in image. It does pick out the detail photographed in sections. Love it again B.

George Townboy said...

Only 86 to go! I'm loving it.

Cool B.

Small City Scenes said...

I kinda like the bridge shots and the info too. Do you think you will ever get to 100? I have been photographing snow, snow, snow. May it soon leave. It doesn't want to go. MB

Virginia said...

Plod along my friend. YOu are showing us every possible angle.

This has got to be my favorite bridge photo, ever. I adore it, really, because for me it depicts a space of safety and comfort, with the encompassing struts and the roadway. I think black and white is perfect for this image, too. It adds to the comfort for me. Thank you so much for posting this photo.

Chuck Pefley said...

Nice. I like the way you're hugging the right side of the railing :) What's next?

Marie-Noyale said...

As long as you have Inspiration it does not matter if it comes from the same source!!
I love bridges too so I won't be the one telling you to stop!

marley said...

Another great photo. I'm a part time nutter as I'm photographing the same place each month. At least I'll be done by september! Lol :)

Ben said...

I like the cascading structure on this image and slightly curved road.
My favourite so far is the shot from 1/Aug/08.
It's a great project and very inspiring.

"So is anyone else photographing the same subject over and over or am I the only nutter?"

Well, yes, er, no. I have revisited a few spots and taken multiple images of the same subject. Just not to the extent of 100 photos.

But this has me thinking maybe I should. Photography is art. Art is in the composition. And this would be an interesting artsy thing to do. And isn't this why we enjoy photography? We compose our shots for the artisan in each of us?
