The road I used to take to work follows the curves of New River Canal, a pretty little waterway that meanders across our parish as if it's in no particular hurry to get anywhere at all. People who built homes on the other side of the canal found it difficult to get into town until a number of little bridges were built across the canal to provide access to the road.
I remember some controversy years ago about whether or not the taxpayers were funding the erection of those bridges for the benefit of so few citizens. I don't remember how that battle turned out, and if I ever cared, I no longer do. Now I just enjoy looking at the pretty wooden bridges.
On days when I took my camera to work, I often took pictures of the bridges as I approached them. Because I was shooting from a moving car (not safe, I know), most of the photos were at least a little blurry.
Once again, the "dry brush" filter in Photoshop Elements came to my rescue and turned the less-than-sharp images into pleasant landscapes. I love the bridges, the shade trees, and even the unknown fishermen in these little scenes:
I hope you're having a beautiful day today, wherever you are.
