A Bridge to the Other Side


Years ago, I saw the movie “Bridges of Madison County” starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. The romantic movie was already intriguing enough because of its storyline,  but, also the bridges featured were captivating in a charming way. They peak my interest in old classic bridges. 

Bridges are elegant because of their exquisite architectural designs, they also have a significance. Metaphorically, a bridge represents a transitional or transcendental movement. Bridges are the medium conducive to moving from one place to another. They offer the means to travel to the other side. 

Below are beautiful images of bridges across the country.

  1. I love this post, Yvonne. I, too, am fascinated by bridges. There’s an 18-mile bridge in my home state of Louisiana that spans a swamp…weird name with timeless views — the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

    1. Hi Michelle, thanks for sharing information about your home state bridge. I checked it out online. It’s interesting there are two running parallel. I don’t know if I have ever traveled on a bridge nearly close to 18 miles, perhaps 8 or 9 at the most. I must admit, I like the artistry and structural aspects of bridges, but I haven’t gotten totally comfortable riding bridges. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. May this school year exceed your expectations.

      1. Yvonne, I must admit that I don’t like traveling across them, but there’s rarely another way to get to the other side. 🙂 Thanks for the well wishes. The year is off to a great start.
