Seeing The Art in Architecture.

Architecture is Art

Hello from the campaign trail.

All across this country there are amazing architectural treasures hidden out there on the backroads.

I've taken a number of photographs,
but I have to share these.

As I was looking over the precinct maps I saw two, not one, but two covered bridges
in Logan County.

I had a little time on Good Friday, so I lit out to find these bridges.
 


This is McColly Bridge

There was no real pull off to really get a good look at it.
I'm in someone's driveway.

Yes, someone has this view every single day.


I'm getting ready to drive through.
I can't really remember the last time I drove through a covered bridge.
 


How cool is this.  


This is Bickham Bridge.
It's a little more rustic, especially in the rock walls that hold it up.
They also had a pull off where I could get out and walk up to it.
This old girl got out and left the comfort of her car
and walked down to the water.


Here's a little more close up.
 


I'm way down there looking up.
 
Now this is way cool!

So now you know I had to get out some sort of art supply and do something
about capturing this bridge.


So here it is.  I'm sure it's going to be painted a number of times in the future. 

Thanks for checking out my art today and here's to future paintings.

  2. Thanks Fay. I brought my paints but after campaigning with my grandson for 6-7 hours a day, I'm beat. I have lots of material though.
