I've always been fascinated by bridges. I love to stand on the edge in the middle and check out what I'm not standing in. ;-)

Of all these wonderful works and wonderful bridges, I have to admit that my favorite is At the Waterfall. This one shows the very essence of a bridge.

Wow, that is a gorgeous collection you pulled together. I'm having trouble picking a favorite ... I want them all on my wall, all at once. :)

And the music -- lovely choice.
