Photo Challenge – Bridges

This week we are asked to capture any type or style of bridge.

Under the Ravenell Bridge

I live an hour north of Charleston but travel there at least once a month.  The Arthur Ravenell Jr bridge connecting Charleston and Mt. Pleasant fascinates me and I often stop for pictures.  You can see the bridge from downtown Charleston and there’s a park underneath the bridge on the Mt. Pleasant side.  I’ve also walked a portion of it twice.

You can see previous posts of the bridge from these links:

Photo Challenge – Look Up

This week is all about taking a moment to check out what’s going on above you.

Look Up

These photos are from a recent walk with my daughter on the Arthur Ravenell Jr Bridge.  We were at an observation deck on the first span of the bridge and looking up, I had a sudden thought as to how insignificant we are in the greater scheme of life.

View from the Arthur Ravenell Jr Bridge – From Mt. Pleasant to Charleston

 

My daughter suggested that we take a walk on the Arthur Ravenell Jr bridge.  It is 2 1/2 miles across and it has a lane for pedestrians and cyclists.  Our goal was to reach the first span and I’m happy to say that we made the goal with surprisingly little soreness today!

The pictures were taken from an observation deck.  The boats in the harbor are specks as seen in the first photo and you can see in the second photo the distance we walked.  Since what goes up has to come down, we walked a total of 1 1/2 miles.  Needless to say, going down was much easier than going up!
