These photos are great. There is a little bridge back in my old town, and the kids would play on it when they were little. This bridge looks very similar to it. Thank you for taking me down memory lane.

Hi Mickie,

lovely sunny tranquil photos today.

I would love to sit in the sun reading a book in that quiet corner.

Have a good Sunday

The bridge is beautiful and the little statue so cute. I would love to walk that path, and then sit in the shade. Perfect haiku for the photos. Well done, Mickie! Hope your weekend is wonderful :-)

Strong sunshine always creates dramatic shadows for us to capture.
I can almost feel the sun beating down on that little girl sitting quietly with her book.
Have a great week.

Your haiku touches my heart, Mickie! XXOOXOX


SHADOW, SHADOW

Shadow, shadow drawing near,
You are all alone, I fear;
Let me be your new-found friend—
I’ll stick with you to the end!

I'm really drawn to that first shot. I love how the shadow under the bridge shows the slits of light shining through.

Ralph said...

That is an absolutely beautiful place, the sun and shade adding a dappled appearance to the flora. The reader is engrossed in his book, unaware of the beauty surrounding him. Which is so nice, as we cannot seem to learn enough of many subjects. Very nice!

Dimple said...

Nice shots, Mickie. It's funny how we humans long for the natural world to the point that we will build replicas of it...

lisa said...

What a wonderful little bridge Mickie, and you have captured it beautifully.
Hope your weekend has been a good one!
