Bridges, Boardwalks and Trestles

I've always been unconsciously drawn to bridges artistically. Not sure what it is about them, but I think it may have something to do with my love of architecture and the mix of textures you get in such photos -- the sharp, strong lines of the bridge and the softer, smoother, wavy textures of the waterways below. Maybe it also has something to do with the juxtaposition of man and nature. These things also extend to other subjects too, like boardwalks and trestles. Each one is unique, and I love finding interesting ways to feature them in my photos.
