black and white mosaic






The rusty iron bridge, formerly a train bridge which crosses the St. John River in Fredericton, is part of the Trans Canada Trail system.  It was a beautiful place to walk and on a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon there were a lot of people taking advantage of the weather and the bridge and trail.  It doesn't look busy in this photo but there were walkers, runners, bikers, skateboarders and roller bladers coming and going while we walked across and back.  

Although it was a gorgeous sunny day with blue skies and lots of green on the shores in the original photos, I decided to do a black and white theme for these ones because of the architecture of the iron bridge.

Pointing the way.
The spire of Christ Church Cathedral on the green in Fredericton stands out in just about any view from the bridge or the city for that matter.

I am joining Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday. This meme has been transferred from Mary at My Little Red House to Judith's capable hands recently.  I hope you will join us or visit and view what we are sharing for mosaics this Monday.  The link goes up on Sunday afternoons but I'm a bit late.  Don't forget to leave a comment.  Have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Pam

  9. I went with my son to do bridge shots in San Franciso a few years ago. There were tons of people on the Golden Gate bridge, but you would never know. You did a fantastic job of showing the architecture!

  10. I like the black and white Pam and looking at all those beams and joints makes one realize how powerful they must be to hold the bridge up.

  32. Catching up on my blog reading. I love these black and white photos and all the shadows and angles, and especially the one with the church steeple peeking through. I hope your brother is showing some signs of improvement, I can imagine how hard for you all. Glad you had such a nice visit with your sister too!

  33. It's obvious that you put a lot of thought into your shots!
    My favorite is the Cathedral's spire photo.

  34. These shots are so cool! I love the designs they create. I wonder if there were intricate shadows cast by them?

  39. I think the B&W works very well here as the lines, shapes and angles show off, which might be lost in colour.

    ReplyDelete
  40. A very nice collection Pamela...I love the perspective, and the angles that you have captured.

  42. I think the black and white was a great choice for this series of photos. It really set off all the interesting shapes created by the shadows.

    I friend of mine recently moved to a home, about an hour from here, that backs up against the Trans Canada Trail. Somehow had a bright idea to create it!
