The Bridge

The Word/Photo Challenge: The Bridge

“If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he’s dead, then maybe he was a great man.” – James Dean

A Bridge, They said

The word prompt from Kate at Aroused for Friday Fun: Bridges

The bridge
They said
was easy.
The bridge
crossed water.
No
They said.
The bridge
traversed
the land.
No
They said.
It is easy
They said.
Lay down
on your back
They said.
Now up
hands and feet
stay there
They said.
Push up
your stomach
They said.
It is easy
look
a bridge
They said.
Collapsing down
body aching
No
I said.

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #60: Framing the Shot

I think I got carried away with this photo challenge but couldn’t find the photo I really wanted. In a random order.  No words but if you want to know about a particular shot, or shots, drop me a line.
