Round Robin Challenge: Bridge

Now closed. Thanks for participating! 

Hi, Robins! Thanks to everyone who participated in our last Challenge. I really enjoyed seeing the variety of songs illustrated, and the different approaches people had to the topic.

Our next one was suggested by Steven of the much-missed (sometimes)photoblog at the beginning of 2009. I've been wanted to do it for a while now. The topic for Saturday, October 23rd is


Bridge

All around the world there are bridges, in all shapes and sizes, ages and colors. Bridges connect two places, enabling something to pass safely over something else; but the details vary wildly. It can be a little wooden foot bridge over a three foot-wide babbling brook, a drawbridge, a railroad bridge, a stone bridge carved out by the forces of nature, or even that big Golden one over the Bay that our friend Carly loves to capture with her camera. Wherever you live, I can almost guarantee there's an interesting bridge somewhere nearby to photograph.

But just in case there's not, feel free to explore alternative meanings of the word. Photograph the bridge of a nose, a game of bridge, or even something metaphorical, such as a bridge between two cultures. All I ask is that you follow the usual guidelines:

1. DO RSVP in the comments below with your name or handle, blog name and blog URL, thus:
I'll strut my stuff for this Challenge.

2. DO NOT post BEFORE the Challenge date. If you need to set it up beforehand, most blogging platforms will let you schedule an entry to post on a certain date and time. But yes, you MAY POST up to 6 DAYS AFTER the date if you forget or something comes up that delays your entry. That said, you will get more visitors to your entry if you post on the Challenge date.

3. DO mention the Round Robin and link back to this blog. (If there's no link or mention, how is that a Round Robin entry?) Including a linking list to the other entries is encouraged but not mandatory. Also, it's helpful to stop by here and leave another comment with your specific link once your entry is posted.

That's it - well, the short version, anyway! If you need further guidelines, please check out our Welcome and Rules of Play entry, or drop me an email at mavarin2 (at) gmail.com. Now, go be photographers! I look forward to seeing everyone's entries on Saturday, October 23rd!

It has been a long time since I have been able to post to one of my favorite memes. But this is certainly a topic that I can walk across.
