178. Theme 35 ~Bridges or Tunnels~

There is a famous children’s book entitled “The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge” written by Hildegard H. Swift (1942) that tells the story of what happens to the lighthouse as the George Washington Bridge is being built.  It’s a very cute story!  HERE’S the link for both.

  1. Spectacular skies and a perfect perspective on the bridge!

  2. This is such a striking photograph. Fabulous composition and processing.

  3. Gorgeous, gorgeous shot. What a beautiful bridge! I love the perspective from the river’s edge.

  4. There is something very special about this one!

  5. Oh my, this one is terrific too! It looks like an illustration, as Ellen said. It’s amazing how the little lighthouse is dwarfed by the massive bridge. I like the moral of the story – you can do important things even though disadvantaged.

  6. What a great shot against a great sky! Look at that sky, and then look at those puffs of clouds behind the bridge. This is a magnificent exposure, and at an angle that best shows off the bridge’s attributes.

  7. What a wonderful photo. It could easily be an illustration for that very sweet story, thanks for the link.

  8. This is a wonderful picture. I love the story behind the picture. I have not heard of this children’s book, but I will have to look it up.

  9. Wow, this is a stunning image!

  10. Thanks for that story – very cute, indeed! The processing on this is very interesting – and the bridge almost looks like silver!

  11. You have been doing some top rated images lately and this is no different – wow, love the composition, the colors and the effect used! Another great one to add to your blog!!
