About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

I like the perspective on this. It makes the long bridge look like a dreary walk to nowhere.

Lynette said...

So, were you standing on the ground beside the bridge to get this perspective? I hope you didn't get stuck by any sticks or bit by any insects. It's a great photo.

It's wonderful how you made a long stretch of grey concrete look like art. You've got such a great eye for photography.

It looks like a long gray trough to me. Great shot. Love the perspective. My eye is always drawn to photos with strong linear qualities so this one is especially appealing. genie

Wonderful bridge shot. And sometime I would like to learn how you link in the location the photo was taken. That's such a great feature!

For Spare Parts and Pics and anyone else who wants to know how I get the map:

If you have a GPS, set it to decimal and make a way point where you take the picture. On mapquest put it in the box where you would put an address, don't forget the minus on the longitude. It will put a push pin at that location. In the upper right hand there is a box labeled link-imbed click there and it will give you the link.
Alternate way to get the push-pin: if you can zero in on the map (I often am pretty sure where I took the shot)right click on the location and mapquest will give you the co-ordinates, put them in the address box and hit search to get the push pin at that location.
It took me a lot of experimentation to figure out how to get the push pin where I wanted it and what format to enter the co-ordinates. I am glad to save others the frustration.
