Bridge Wires

Bridge Wires

A geometric pattern is created by the top part of a quaint, old, one-lane railway bridge that used to be on Sarnia Road in London. The bridge was built in the 1890s in Manitoba and relocated to London in 1909. It was demolished in 2011, a few days after I took this shot, to make room for a new bridge.

    • I know. there is such a lack of appreciation for anything historic these days. Hopefully, the City council will be true to their word and relocate it to somewhere as a footbridge… but I’m not holding my breath.

  1. This leaves the viewer considering many thing. The first is the passage of time when you realize that it is a record of history.
    Whenever I see shots like this, or consider taking some of my own in this manner, I am reminded of the concept of implied space. The concept of implied space has become more significant with the development of creating art in virtual realities (games/movies). There is a science fiction novel by Jon Williams that explores this concept .
    The image is full of implied space, both by what it reveals and by what is left out of view. Very well done.

    • thank you. yes the implied space is deliberate but also needed for my geometric chunk of the view. I want the viewer to ‘fill in ht blanks’ so to speak. I’ve never read anything by Jon Williams -will have to keep an eye out at the library for that book. thanks!
