This is my third entry to the Which Way Photo Challenge. It’s a wonderful challenge and I encourage all to check out all the creative responses it has garnered.
Okay, one last shot.
I’ll be deconstructing this bridge over the next few days. I took a number of detailed photos that I can’t wait to share. Do you like the detail of the gate that drops when the bridge opens?
The structure that the bridge keeper uses fascinates me as well. It reminds of the kind of fortifications that the Normans built all over England after the Conquest. These fortifications began life as wooden structures that were then systematically changed to stone. Even Windsor Castle started off as a glorified wooden, mud-daubed hut.
