Weekly Photo Challenge: Where I return to photograph

I look at this bridge every day sometimes twice a day as it is on my normal dog walk route. Sometimes I photograph it for the sky.

or for the tranquility

or the reflections

or just because it is there.

Sometimes it is windy making the water choppy.

I photograph it from a distance

from underneath

and sometimes I photograph me.

Other times I video our life on the river.

In response to the Weekly photo challenge I don’t know that the bridge is my muse but I certainly photograph it time and again.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    It is interesting to see the bridge as focal point in the photos of ever-changing sky and water. I love the one you took of your shadow. I took some of me like that recently!

    I was taken by the shadows and patterns in the water. What a beautiful spot, Irene.
