Friday Photo Shootout

Bridges, in B&W, is the theme this week, suggested by Elaine Dale at A Scattering.
The only bridges we have in our town are the ones that go over the San Pedro River, that flows through the riparian area. It is a favorite place to bird watch or hike (in the winter when the snakes are hibernating).

This next bridge is in Tucson. I always enjoy looking at it. Makes me smile.

This last one is also in Tucson, in the downtown area. It is built to look like a diamondback rattlesnake. A little creepy, but it's cool.


For more Friday Photo Shootout pics, or to join up, please go here. You'll find some truly phenominal photos!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I do like the effect of b&w, especially the view of the San Pedro!
Nice job.

What gorgeous pictures. A snake bridge! What if it were combined with the "wavy" bridge in Jama's post? Now that would be creepy.

Wow, that last one sure is something. I've never seen one like that before :)

GB said...

Great choice of bridges.

Glad you're back. Safe and sound and all's well, I hope.

Barry said...

Wonderful. Very different. Bridges that have been made to look attractive instead of just functional. What a novel idea!

Doreen said...

the last two bridges are very unique and different. nice series of shots!!

Pauline said...

What wonderful bridges you have! They look terrific in black and white, too!

Chef E said...

A great variety of bridges there - cannot think of any in the UK that are as unusual (though there probably are somewhere).
