This is the second time I've tried photographing this bridge. It crosses a creek on a fairly isolated road that doesn't get much traffic, so I should be able to take my time in photographing it. I like its age and intricacy. It's so much more interesting than most of the bridges that are constructed now.
Why did I essentially fail the first time? Dogs. Big, running, barking dogs that came barreling at the car from a nearby house. The kind of dogs that are really intimidating and you don't know how their bite actually relates to their bark.
So the way I photographed it this time? From the safety of the car, standing up through the open sunroof.
Gotta love a sunroof!
