December Theme Day (Bridges)


Today is the City Daily Photo December Theme Day, and the subject is BRIDGES. Nothing better would do for this theme from Selma, Alabama, USA than a picture of the Edmund Pettus Bridge that crosses the Alabama River. Opened in 1940, this bridge became famous during the Civil Rights Movement. I took this photograph from Songs of Selma Park. A similar photo taken last summer can be found here.
Please visit all the other bridges around the world.

Nice bridge structure and your view, including the park and autumn trees is a great photograph.

Kate said...

What a history your city has! And, what a lovely photograph!

Annie said...

It is a landmark indeed, scene to a great struggle, well fought but still not completely won.

Josy said...

There's something very familiar about this photograph... very cozy, very home-sweet-home. Quite lovely!

Jilly said...

Oh wonderful to see this famous bridge - and such a good photograph of it too. Great choice - the only choice for you and Selma!

That's a gorgeous bridge and you captured it beautifully; very nicely framed.

Wendy said...

I'm enjoying seeing bridges around the world, today. The one you've posted certainly demands attention, as it stand out amidst the surrounding scenery.

Very good composition and a very thoughtful post. You are right that this was the bridge which had to be shared in a photo blog from Salem.

I really like the perspective of bridge in you photo, this must be beautiful site for sight seeing. Excellent shot.

Ben said...

Fantastic! Nice framing.

Hyde DP said...

A nice old bridge

Dan said...

I really like the way you framed this bridge. Without the color of the park and trees the metal of the bridge against the sky could have been a dull pic, but you have made it a work of art!

Sally said...

That's a truly magnificent photo - takes you right there.

Thanks for visiting me in hospital! I feel better already :-)

Felicia said...

Helen said...

I like the perspective here!

Marie said...

Wow, that's a big one! I like the way you shot it.

Neva said...

It looks very much like bridges in West Virginia where I grew up.
