Photography ~ Facebook– June 2016 Photo-a-Day Challenge–Day 16

It is Bridge Day for the Facebook Picture-a-Day Challenge.

I will submit the Francis Scott Key Bridge [or Key Bridge] in Virginia. It connects Rosslyn, Virginia to the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. Each of the bridges has a special meaning because I cycled across most of them. An exception if the Ponte Vecchio in Firenze [or Florence], Italy. I think the Seven-Mile Bridge on my way to Key West, Florida was the most fun to ride. The most challenging–actually there are three. The first, pictured below, is the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina. That bridge has two sisters: one in Savannah, Georgia [the Talmadge Memorial Bridge] and the other in Brunswick, Georgia [the Sidney Lanier Bridge]. They are challenging because of their grade [they are steep] to allow river traffic to pass beneath without having to interrupt vehicular traffic. For bikers, it is another hill to climb and if you are loaded, they are all the more challenging. Most bridges have this characteristic. We know….

Again, either of these pictures works for me for today’s challenge. I select the Key bridge because of the picture’s composition.
