Suspension Bridges Are Iconic
July 21, 2018

Suspension Bridges are Iconic, and the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, connecting Cincinnati and Covington Kentucky, is no exception. Well, now that I think about it, perhaps it is. There are Bridges all over the world, but the one’s I think of as iconic, are the Golden Gate Bridge in SanFransico, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, and of course, the John A Roebling Suspension Bridge here in the Queen City. What do all of these Bridges have in...

The River At Twilight
July 14, 2018

There is a peacefulness that descends on The River At Twilight - Murphy and I occasionally find a deserted piece of riverbank and stare out in silence.

Morning Moon Light - The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, reflecting morning moon light, presented here in monochrome. I did not notice, at the time, that a crescent moon, still visible in the early morning sky, joined Murphy and I on our walk. It adds an intriguing detail to the image. I love surprises in photography, as in life. Wishing you hope, peace, and love! Happy...
