Two Bridges Different Looks

July 18, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I always think that it is interesting how something so utilitarian as a bridge crossing water can become something artistic, as the two bridges taken from Horse Rock Point show. For me it is a combination of time of day, the quality of the light and the textures that are inherent in the structure. Architecture is fascinating, it doesn’t have to be one of the well known iconic buildings, it can be the everyday, mundane that can have the most interesting lines and structural forms, it just takes us to see it.

I have travelled over the Tom Uglys bridges many times in my life, they are not far away from me. They are not architectural significant, they are functional, but with the late afternoon light and some long exposure photography, they look interesting and elegant.

I really enjoy the way the lines of the two bridges disappear into a single vanishing point. As well, as the edge of the boat ramp pointing toward the same spot. Black and White seems to bring out the character in the structures.

As the sun was setting the golden light highlighted the underside of this old bridge giving it an interesting colourful glow. I love the way the water looks with reflection of the bridge. The other thing that makes this photo is the detail of all the rivets in the bridge.

Loving the warm sunlight highlighting the underside of the bridge. It make this utilitarian bridge look just little bit more special.
