Week 46. – #3. Aged To Perfection

4 Comments

The Blackburn Point Bridge is an historic swing bridge located near Osprey, FL and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.  It is a one-lane swing bridge located on Blackburn Point Road at the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. It is the northernmost of the two bridges connecting the barrier island Casey Key to the mainland of Florida. Constructed by the Champion Bridge Co. and opened to traffic in December 1926, it is “aged to perfection” and traffic crosses it daily. Because of its age, I have elected to process my photo with a vintage look.

3. Aged To Perfection

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
