Second place

A steel walkway bolted to the north side of the Nelson Street bridge over Woods Creek, shot from below.

This was my second choice (albeit a distant second) for yesterday's "paths and passages" theme. I may be alone in my interest in the underside of this bridge (I posted earlier about it, here), though many Lexingtonians pass below it every day while walking or running on the Woods Creek Trail.

In the future, I plan to post the interesting underside of some other bridges (for instance, the I-81 overpass on the Chessie Trail), so bear with me. Sometimes I like to look up.

It is interesting, I first thought it looked like a door.

I went through a stage where I looked down a lot and found interesting looking street medallions, sewer covers, etc. I guess it just pays to notice things by looking around.

Interesting one. Hard to figure out the perspective at first until I read the text.Interesting study of colors and materials. I think this is a good way to develop your photographic eye and skills.

This is a beautiful photograph - the kind I would like to be able to take. I love this shot. BTW - thanks for the kinds words the other day - very nice and encouraging of you - meant a lot to me.
