Festival of Bridges ~ Grand Opening

I would like to thank everyone for their birthday wishes and for your interest in my Festival of Bridges which is running from today until October 31.

Sandy, from the great blog Hoarder Comes Clean, sent two stunning photographs to set us on our way.

Old Railroad Bridge in Missouri
Here’s what she says about this one:
This the old railroad bridge is just west of my hometown in northwest Missouri. The Missouri bridge is one we used to play on as kids, and walk out on the rafters. The trains don’t go through anymore, so the old railroad tracks have been taken up and it’s just a walking path where they were. This is the only bridge left.

And here’s her second amazing contribution from a trip to Alaska a few years back.

I’m absolutely enthralled by these photographs and love the idea that they’ve come from places and in weather so different to Tramore here in the Sunny South-East of Ireland.

I am really looking forward to being able to bring contributions about bridges, loosely defined ~ in words, art, photography, music,  or a combination of same ~ to the world through this Festival of Bridges over the coming weeks. Please email me at jeantubridy@aol.com with the bridges that matter to you!
