Friday "My Town" Shootout--Bridges!

This week's FMTSO theme was chosen by Elaine in Ontario, Canada--bridges! The FMTSO group also suggested the option of doing the entire shoot in black and white.... so here we go!

The babbling sounds of an arroyo can lead to quiet contemplation...

Northern California has a long history of trains, so old train trestles hve been refurbished and integrated into the Iron Horse Trail, a 33 mile bike/walking/horseback trail crossing 12 cities and 2 counties.

Have a great week, shutterbugs!


  1. I love old train trestles - yours are beautifully done.

  2. I agree with Ginger, but also love the contemplation shot. I know I love the sound of water flowing through the rocks. so soothing.

  3. This looks like a terrific place for a bike ride, Nice work!

  4. Great pictures. Your second photo looks a lot like the walking bridge I used in my shoot out.

    I think I enjoyed the converted train bridge the best. Black and white sure adds a touch of drama to the Shoot Out.

  5. I love any wooden bridge, reminds me of westerns when they would blow them up, okay a memory popped up!

  6. Hehe - laughing at Chef E's comment. Looked at the photo again and can imagine it myself now. Really enjoyed your photos!
