Week 33 – #8. Differences

When I went on a photo adventure last week with two fellow photographers, I had no particular theme in mind to photograph. Lady luck was with us because as we were on the fishing pier photographing the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Vision of the Seas, loaded with happy vacationers, was making her voyage out to the Gulf. I took this photo just as she passed underneath the bridge, much to my excitement. It wasn’t until I returned home and began looking at my photos that I discovered I had captured a photo to satisfy this week’s theme. There are differences in platforms used to facilitate travel. Roadways and bridges are fixed as compared to mobile platforms such as ships.

9. Highways and Byways

When thinking about highways and byways, my thoughts immediately went to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which is part of I-275 (US 93) and US 19 (SR 55).  It is one of the most beautiful bridges I have ever seen; however, for some strange reason I do not enjoy driving across it.  On this day, I did something I have wanted to do for years, i.e. stop and photograph it.  If you’re interested in its history, you may click here.
