For me, this week’s Photo Challenge from the editors at WordPress is downright daunting, so much so that I almost didn’t participate once I read the details.
At first, the theme, “Bridge,” seemed easy enough. Pittsburgh has 446 bridges – more than Venice, Italy – and I’ve taken lots of photos of them.
Then I read the editor’s instructions. Whenever possible, the photos should go beyond steel and suspension wires. “Go deeper and take a snapshot of something or someone that acts as a bridge in your life: a link, a connection, a mediator,” the instructions state. “They … should convey the figurative bridges that connect us as human beings sharing space on the planet.”
In actuality, I’m not great at the esoteric. Show me an actual bridge and I will snap away, confident in my ability to find something interesting to showcase. Ask me to dig deeper, however, and my confidence implodes faster than an aging structure brought down by dynamite.
Nonetheless, it’s called a “challenge” for a reason. So, with a request for your indulgence, here are a few snaps on the theme of “Bridge.”
