Merry Christmas to everyone!, originally uploaded by DeDaniel.

Tag search ‘bridge’. Not of one but from one I imagine. I like it – it communicates the essence of the moment.

According to wiki:

Gephyrophobia is an anxiety disorder brought about by the fear of bridges. As a result, sufferers of gephyrophobia may avoid routes that will take them over bridges.

I don’t suffer from this rare and debilitating disorder but I would gladly avoid this bridge!

A Lucky Escape

My parents car on the 35W bridge (view 2), originally uploaded by t0ddc.

Tag search ‘bridge’. Remember this? The bridge that collapsed last year in Minneapolis. The uploader’s parents were very lucky indeed.

Cap:

Another view of where my parents were during the collapse. Their car is the black Nisson Exterra near the left guardrail, with the passenger door slightly ajar. My father said that a construction trailer with two workers on it rolled past them and over the edge.

I spent a few days messing about with a lightbox a couple of years ago. It was great fun – laying stuff out and seeing what I could make out of it. Kiwis, I thought, were particularly interesting.

I also had success with tomatoes – see here for a tomato shot.
