I like bridges. They show our creativity and skill in overcoming some of the most formidable and often beautiful natural landscapes. There are innumerable examples of this architecture around the world, from covered wooden bridges to large expansive highways over river and ocean waterways.

These obstacle crossing marvelous architectural structures are often inspiration for scale modelers as well. I include myself in that category because I collect model trains.

When I travel I find myself looking at and often taking pictures of bridges.
