“Ode to Bridges”
Bridges repair souls. Escalate dreams. Fulfill visions. Transpose reality. Cultivate adventure. Calm destinations sought. Carry sunlight, starlight. Move tribes. Relinquish power. Cast spells.
Bridges mesmerize. Build foundations. Seek answers. Create questions.
Bridges reflect, eyes forward or backward. Give golden moments for repose. Incite untold possibilities.
In the Lens section are two images that show the abstract quality of architecture: angles and lines, colors and shapes that are in our sights each and every day. As we isolate these elements, we see what often is unnoticed–and yet always right before us: abstractions in architecture and just about everywhere.
Tip of the Week: Recently, a historic exhibition, “Drawn by Light: The Royal Photographic Society Collection,” opened in central London. On exhibit are some of the earliest known images (1820s). These works cover a span that starts with early pioneers and reaches to contemporary photographers. “Drawn by Light” is the first major London show to highlight the rich contents of the oldest photographic society in the world. The show is open until 03 March 2015, and in 2017 will travel to the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen, Mannheim, Germany. For those of us who cannot see the exhibition in England or Germany, please click here to view some of the photographs, which are published online at The Telegraph’s website. The Society houses 250,000 images, 8,000 items of photographic equipment and 31,000 books, periodicals and documents. Most assuredly, it is one of the most comprehensive global collections of photography.
