Same bridge, different day - My World

It's snow different to all the other bridge images

For those still counting.... No 24


My world just wouldn't be complete without the legendary Ramsey Swing Bridge capture. Well it's iconic to this blog and it's stalkers, I mean followers. The challenge to photograph a single standing item, building, whatever goes on and I chose the bridge and I'm stuck with it now until I finally nail that 100th shot. Actually I have probably taken over a thousand but as this blog is supposed to be about the whole of this one horse town then it would be unfair for me to inflict upon you daily images of the bridge from numerous angles. I do try and stagger them, no more than one a week and do try and show you those dreaded cliche photography words... from a different perspective, dontcha just love that composition, the occasionally juxtaposed person to bridge and of course good use of rules of thirds. Today you just get a carbon copy of the very first image I posted to kick off the blog with one fundamental difference.... you got it covered in a whole lotta snow, reeal snow not photoshopped in. I may be taking the urine with the writing, but the photography I do mostly take seriously.


If you really want to know more about the bridge, see it swing, and how and why I started this challenge in the first place then look out below at the rotating images from the annals of the blog. One of those will tell you all you need to know. For other offering around the world, bridges may feature but not compulsory, click here

It looks like you have the same weather as we have. Why 100 photos of the same bridge?
Thanks for visiting :)

Babooshka: What a neat shot of the swing bridge. It is amazing the varieties that bridges can be made. There is railroad bridge in Cleveland that raises strait up for boat passage.

Sometimes when you force yourself to do the same old thing over and over you start seeing how to look at it differently in order to keep it fresh. I think you have been doing that for some time.

I think you have a great photograph.

You do make me laugh with your comments about Ramsey. I have lived here over 20 years and it has changed but the bridge doesn't. Keep up the blog, makes me chuckle.

Say, there's something familiar about that bridge - oh yes, it's THAT bridge! Nice wintry shot.

Sylvia K said...

Great post as always, Babooshka! I think the bridge is fascinating and I always enjoy your photos of it. Looks a little different with all the snow! Have a great weekend!

I don't recall seeing your swing bridge covered with snow before, there is always something new to be found in the old.
I imagine the Joshua tree does seem exotic to folks in other parts of the world.

We have nowhere near that much snow, but it looks so pretty! We had a few flurries this morning, but no accumulation, which is fine by me! I like seeing falling snow, but it can disappear soon afterward as far as I'm concerned.

Beautiful blog!

Quilt Works said...

I love the endless lines. Beautiful composition.

This is also my first visit here. I was attracted by your nickname - a bit of an insider test only people who understand Russian know what it means :-)

Carver said...

I always love your photographs of this bridge and it's beautiful covered in snow. For that matter it's always beautiful but snow makes a lovely change.

Chuck Pefley said...

Well, you can say it's snow fun photographing the same bridge again -:)

Xavi said...

Hi Babooshka,
I like your blog and the Isle of Man.
Thanks for stopping in my blog.
Have a nice week.

Your words made me smile because I'm always telling my husband, in explantation for why I want to photograph something AGAIN: "but these are different circumstances."

Mojo said...

Yay! The bridge is back! Funny, I almost tossed the Surf City swing bridge out for MWT this week. Got a hella sunset shot of it when I was there last. Maybe next week, yeah?

But my swinger ain't likely to ever see snow. And it doesn't have that nifty curve in it that you've so deftly used to good advantage here. You've a bit nicer looking background for yours too. Which you've also used to good advantage.

And snow, of course. You have snow.

Well I think this is the first with snow on and I don't think I'd want to venture onto it in such conditions. 76 to go.

Pam said...

Still as mad as ever. Still amazing photography

Lew said...

Leave it up to ole man winter to put a white coat on your bridge! Glad to see you back at the bridge.

Wren said...

I'm enjoying your photo even as I've had quite enough of my own snow.

Rajesh said...

Greyscale Territory said...

Strange! The bridge almost seems to be sculpted into the snow! Great shot!

Oh, you have got business call ;))

Thank you for visiting my frosty country!

I know, your snow is special, because it does not exist 4-5 months every year and I can see, that it decorates this bridge beautifully.
All the best for you!
