RAMSEY SWING BRIDGE - LINE, CROSS AND CURVE

Take it to the Bridge

17/100


Let's get this out the way. Skywatch is the post below for those who are just not interested in "the cult of Babooshka's Ramsey Swing Bridge."Just when you thought it was safe the swingiest of swing bridges in all the world launches another attack on the visual senses. Actually you have this image today because I feel like crap and my visual senses are impaired and I am not able to show and tell about anything else really. Absolutely full of crappy flu nonsense and even my Friday night tipple of Jack Daniels and Coke didn't help. I know, that is how rough I'm feeling. So back to the bridge. Blah di Blah. We are up to 17 0f 100 ways to leave your... no I mean capture one subject in a cool interesting ingenious super fantabulous way. Oh alright then let's do boring photo speak - how to use one's lens and camera brain to interpret and reimagine one subject captured.... no I can't do the oooh cleverly juxtaposed/composition/angle etc tonight. I'm too pooped. It has lines, shadows, crosses, arches, triangles, circles, curves, it has geometry. That will do. Geometry. I know you can all play hunt the bridge below and I'll go hunt my bed.

I love the angle, and I'm sitting here studying the photo so that the next time I find myself wanting to capture something linear in a more interesting way, I'll know where to stand. :) Hope you are feeling better very soon! God bless you! (That was for the sneeze--and well, just in general.)Smiles!

Pam said...

Don't take this the worng way but your flu lets us see the bridge again. God bless you Babooshka you are a crazy funny chick.

Hi Babooshka,

Beautiful shot of the bridge. You have real dedication to update your site while battling the flu.

Feel better and hope you are having pleasant dreams. : )

Beautiful angle on that shot.

Lew said...

Love the shadows in this one!

We'll settle for that little square of blue in the top left corner. And then meander through the rest of the photo. Depth of field all the way in this one. Thanks for the post in spite of the not feeling well.

Interesting choice of words, "a tipple of Jack Daniels." Of course the other meaning of tipple is a metal frame that holds things (cars being delivered, coal coming out of the mine). Ramsey Swing Bridge looks like a tipple!

Bless you! Gesundheit! I love curvy and voluptuous bridges:)

Dave King said...

Superb post - but Jack Daniels and Coke? Sacrilege!

17 is my favourite.

Great picture, I like all the geometry and the colours are interesting. Hope you feel better soon!

George said...

I really like this picture of the bridge. It does contain a lot of geometry as well as beautiful colors. I hope you're feeling better soon.

chrome3d said...

I have problems to do that today too. I have to see what juxtaposed means soon as it´s something that I see so often.

Juergen Kuehn said...

I love the point of view. So I can fabulate about the dimensions of this swing bridge - before I have a look on your bounty photos.

Beth P. said...

I like the swing in your bridge!

Jacob said...

Very interesting angle...it appears to compress the photo so the bridge hardly looks big enough for a vehicle to cross.

Very dramatic, too. Great play of light, shadow and color!

The Bhutanese say, "Long life" when one sneezes, so may you have a long life filled with awesome bridge shots! (and maybe fewer shots of Jack Daniels, hee hee).

Kelly said...

I always love your shots of this bridge! Well done!

A man has gotta have a hobby?! Hope you feel better soon, I am recovering from the lurgy at the moment!

Small City Scenes said...

The Bridge, Boss, The Bridge!!!!

Super angle. MB

Jackie said...

Great angle, I really like this. Hope you feel better soon and the hot toddies start doing the trick. My other half is coming down with it too by the sounds of the sniffing and sneezing going on.

marley said...

Its like seeing an old friend :)

Mo said...

Oh pop yourself in bed and get well soon. Love the maths lesson with the photography.

Dusty Lens said...

Hoorahh, the swingbridge again! I do like this series. Jack Daniels and coke, a fine antidote for the flu. However, I like mine without the mix. And I also enjoy Bushmills over Mr. Daniels. Sort of strange we cross the ocean for our refreshments.

Eki Akhwan said...

half filled, half empty, and shadow in between ... what a wonderful composition, B!

Ackworth born said...

I like how you've got the near and the far together and of course there has to be a gull flying over.

lv2scpbk said...

I really like the angle in which you took this photo.

Babooshka said...

Gerald - Has to be a bird in there somewhere

Mojo said...

Playing catch-up this morning, but well worth it! Stunning composition here!

i like the shadow in the shadow

John said...

Love the perspective. Well captured.

Mary said...

I listened to a quilt artist last Saturday who did a whole series of quilts based on bridges like this...Marti Plager....you would have liked her works :-)

susieofarabia said...

I love this whole composition - you are SOOOO good!

Joe Narvaez said...

This is a well-framed shot. I love it!
