Member Voice - Bridges

March 26th, "bridges":

“When I suggested ‘bridge’ as a theme for one our shoot outs I was originally thinking of the type that spans water. However, the more I thought about it, the more I contemplated the varied meanings of the word. So I hope we’ll have a broad range of photos and that we might see ones that portray most of these definitions:

1 a : a structure carrying a pathway or roadway over a IMG_3124edepression

2 : something resembling a bridge in form or function: as a : the upper bony part of the nose; also : the part of a pair of glasses that rests upon it b : a piece raising the strings of a musical instrument c : the forward part of a ship's superstructure from which the ship is navigated d : the hand as a rest for a billiards or pool cue; also : a device used as a cue rest

It has also been decided that this will be our first assignment to be shot in black and white so have fun and to borrow a phrase from the Irish, fill yer boots!”

I hope you all have a great time with this topic – I look forward to all the stories and the photos. GingerV


  1. Oooo interesting mind is turning already!! Wonderful topic!!

  2. I sent a query to Eliane's blog, but may be others can help me?

    My digital camera doesn't seem to take B & W. I put it on M which I took to be monochrome, but it didn't work,

    May I use the computer to generate a sepia photo?



  3. Hi everyone - In answer to Ann's question, I didn't actually shoot in B&W. I edited my photos in Picasa 3 (free online) and conversion to B&W is one of the options. Have fun everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing what you shoot.
