The Morse Mill Bridge

MMDT #16 photo challenge inspired by texture. We were to choose a location of our choice and capture textures. I wanted to do this assignment at Elephant Rock or the Sandy Creek Covered Bridge. There wasn't time to go to Elephant Rock and the bridge was closed for construction. So I chose a park approximately 3 miles from my house. It has an old iron bridge that is only open to foot traffic.  Years ago is was a popular swimming hole. I like this area because it is quiet and just neat!

Used oregano and periwinkle MM grid paper from

This assignment turned out to be three pages long. However, I haven't figured out how to post page three it is more than 5mb? Will work on that tomorrow. Too tired to think any longer.

Page one below:


 The bottom page photos are all the same log. Middle photos are taken of the  aging roadway.



 The above picture was taken from a hole in the girders of the bridge. Same view as the photo above it on page one.


 Page two below:


 The above photos were photos of the reflections on the water.




Page three below: sorry it took so long...figured out how to make less than 5mb.

Starting top left is old asphalt on bridge, close up of the boulders at south end of bridge, vines around tree, iron work at north end of bridge right, tree bark, mugzee :), same vines on tree as prior, boulders close up, bridge hardware, the only flower on the bridge, trash w/logo, rapids from page 1, corn, dusty weeds, knotty roots, stone from east side of bridge foundation.

Below is page two of the booklet.

This is photo of a leaf cut out and taped to book.

Below is what the bridge looked like years ago thanks to the internet.

Notice Ted (without leg brace) in the distance.

 Thanks for stopping by!

I like all 3 pages! Love the reflections of the trees in the water, and the moon photo is very cool! Love the booklet insert, too...great idea! And I think my favorite is the one with your hubby in the background, too! That is such a neat shot! Sorry about your card. :(. Hugs!

Julie! Very nice shots on all different textures! You did a great job at showing them all off! My favorite ones is of the roadway! I can even see the textures in the moon shot! Very nice job.

Great texture shots! I love the moon photo really drew me in. And now, I too, am dying to see page 3!! Great job on pages 1 and 2!

Julie, by telling us what we can't see, you leave us wanting TO see it!! I love the silhouette of the corn against the setting sun! Seeing the various water photos, some so still, others roaring as rapids. I like the bridge shot (with your hubby on it) from the angle you took it and glad to see him on his own two feet!! The periwinkle paper works nicely!

Tami: The moon shot was not a reflection on the was the pics above that were reflections. Sorry! Would have been cool. As I was taking more pictures to try and post page 3 I lost my grip on my sd card and it went down the a/c intake in the living room floor :( Darn, it was my first on larger than 2gb and wasn't cheap. My husband says it's just lost. Bad day a work will put new card in tomorrow.

Nice job on the texture photos Julie! I especially like the one of the bridge that looks like you took it from the ground - with the rocks in the foreground. I can't believe the moon shot was a reflection on the water - very cool!
