Day 243 – September 10, 2018
Irony – VJ’s Weekly Challenge / Stoic – Manic Mondays / Bridges – Photo for the Week #8 / Day 10 – #SeptemberSquares / Stability – FOWC / Grace – RDP / Tempestuous – WODC / Made of Wood – citysonnet DWP
Another day of rain, more flooding, and more photos of water, equaled a trip to find the flooding. Found it. Before I even checked what the prompts were today I knew I wanted to stop at this bridge. How fortunate the irony when I assembled today’s prompts. This is the Utica Covered Bridge, the fourth that I have photographed this year (more photos below). I tried to capture the sheer magnitude of these tempestuous waters. When I approached the bridge, there was no way I was able to keep a stoic demeanor. To put this in perspective, the tree in the middle is usually seen trunk to the ground, standing next the small creek that runs next to it. 100 years ago the bridge was destroyed by a flood. Looking at the wood and stability put into the rebuild, I would say it well continue to stand, full of grace, through the weeks continuing flooding and the potential of Florence (hurricane) visiting the area this weekend. Happy new week all!
