Down by the River – The Centennial Bridge

Centennial Bridge

Getting out of the house, the kids and I took a walk along the Mississippi riverfront.  Along the way we saw some firefighters that allowed them to get inside of the bucket of their tower ladder truck.  They didn’t get to go up the 7 floors that it extends, but it was fun for them to get up in there.  Along our walk we strolled under Centennial bridge that connects Davenport, IA with Rock Island, IL.    The clouds made for a great backdrop to the span.

    The clouds balance out the picture perfectly.

    • I love the clouds in the midwest. It takes ho-hum photos and makes them come alive. Thanks, Michaela.

  3. I love the way you composed the line of the bridge.

    It’s strange how photographers are fond of bridges. I wonder what it is about them.

    Delightful shot.

    • Thanks D. I’m not sure what it is about bridges either, but I am definitely drawn to them. Perhaps it is because they often have a great story and due to their size are challenging to photograph.
