Mill Road Bridge

These shots are of the Mill Road Bridge (bet you can't guess what road it's on).  It was built in 1888 and is still in service today.  It's not too far from the Bridge of Eight Arches and also spans the Neshaminy Creek.

This is the underside of the bridge.  I like the symmetry and monochrome make this rock.  I'm submitting this for 'The Weekend in Black and White'.

I'm away for a while, so I may not get to commenting on your blogs, sorry!

Here's a more 'normal' view.  Pretty cool old bridge.  The bridge design is referred to as "Whipple through truss"

I'm going to look for this bridge. It looks like we are on the same wavelength today. :)

Love that old bridge. Very cool shot in monochrome. I like the pattern and symmetry. Great shot i B/W.

Great shots of the old bridge! Frederick county, MD has a number of these old truss bridges. In my sidebar I have links to images of some of them.

Mill Road? Hah! Nice shot Woody. I agree with you about the way the geometry and monochrome make this shot rock. Nice work.

I like the way you shot the underside of the bridge. Very interesting view.

Rebecca said...

You did some research? Or do you naturally know all that about bridges. I like the touch of sun in the first photo. Adds interest.

It allays pays to view subjects from all angles before shooting - ver well done.

PS. Thanks for your kind comment on mine :)

Good shot with the geometric shapes. I really like the colour shot for the way it shows some 'out of the way' stream crossing.

Are they for people or for cars?

Oh that first shot is fantastic! I've got a bridge from the 70s, the 1970s that is! Lol, yours is a century older and I like it very much!
