Day 158 – June 7, 2018
It took so long for me to decide where I was going to go 365 hunting and what the subject should be. Once again I forgot to head over to thehouseofbailey where Scott is attempting to fill the void left by the Daily Post by hosting his own Daily Prompt. The cool thing, for me anyway, is that when Daily Post prompt was posted, I did not get it until Mid-late morning due to time changes. With Scott’s prompt it is already tomorrow, which means I already have tomorrow’s prompt, so I have the evening and tomorrow morning to work the post. It also helps me be able to combine the prompt with the other challenges I have joined, as I have done in the past. So consider the void filled 😁! As far as the photo above, it was another amazingly beautiful day, so I ventured out to this bridge that I have featured in the past. I thought it was a great representation of Cee’s which way challenge this week (even if I did just get it in before the new one is posted tomorrow.) This is the Sach’s Covered Bridge, built around 1854, just outside the Gettysburg Battlefield. It is not easily found by visitors to Gettysburg, so rarely is there a large number of people. I have gone here on a number of occasions to do photo sessions. It pretty much has everything you need for a multitude of backgrounds. I have been hired by my kid’s friends to photograph their Senior Pics. This is usually one of the very first locations I go. But there are also some fascinating stories behind this bridge. One of the stories claims that the bridge is said to be the most haunted bridge in America. A claim that I have confirmed through a friend who is a battlefield guide. I found this post written by thepetitewanderer, posted about 8 months ago, while looking for new stories, that tells the tale. My kids have also ventured out to the bridge, at night, on a number of occasions. All three have shared some spooky experiences. You can read more about it and the role it played during the war. It’s really interesting how easy it is to take some things for granted. I had done a number of sessions at this site a number of times before I realized how historical it is.
