I’ll admit that I was looking for architectural grandeur with this bridge, the cathedral-like quality to be found looking dead-center through the piers. Instead, I was most taken by the qualities of the concrete, with its subtle cracking and vague hieroglyphic markings.



And, about the aforementioned barges that work the Mississippi twenty-four/seven: when you are anchored on a sandbar for the night, the sight of one of these massive vessels sliding by is all kinds of other-worldly. They are remarkably quiet and you can only stand on the deck of your little craft, mouth slightly a-gape and  contemplate their lights slicing through the silence of the velvet-black night.  Three shots of a passing barge in the slideshow below

    I thought you were going to contemplating the barges slicing through your boat. It sounds like you enjoyed this excursion immensely.

    Well Ms Wabi Sabi, bridges and concrete and helpful houseboat helmsman makes for beautiful images.

    Cement never looked so good! Really like the abstraction effect.

  5. I love how you’ve captured all that concrete! Isn’t that great when you go out to look for something particular, and then discover something else instead? Can feel like an extra bonus!

  6. I love how you used the angles and lines in this structure to create such interesting and eye catching images.
