GONE IN A SPLASH

“now evaporates and becomes then”

 Every year Pittsburgh sponsors  The EQT  Three Rivers Regatta.

One of the feature attractions is the power boat races.  The races create waves in our rivers and are a splash hit in the city that draws thousands  to our shores.

One of the best places to be in the early spring is Washington D.C.  The beauty of the cherry blossoms puts a spring in your step in anticipation of the coming summer fun.

COVERED BRIDGE

While touring the covered bridges in Lancaster Pennsylvania, I came across this old weather bridge in Bedford County.

Cuppett’s Covered Bridge was built on land owned by William and Phillip Cuppett. Located near New Paris, this burr truss design has unusually low arches and open sides. Unpainted and allowed to weather naturally, it spans Dunnings Creek, a mile north of New Paris. Privately owned.

The bridge is 60 feet long. It is not traversable.

I searched through my  archives and found these photos for Cees Fun Foto Challenge: Catching People Unaware.

Walking the streets of Times Square, you never know what you might see.  Enjoy.

See what I found in the mining town of Jerome Arizona.

Now back to my hometown on the streets of Pittsburgh, Pa.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE:  WALLS

Below are some of man made walls of water that I have photographed over the past two or three years.  I hope you enjoy them.

Waterfalls such a beautiful sight
So peaceful and quiet
The water shimmers as it falls
Blue and clear

IMG_5497AAA

Hear the whisper in the air
As the water flows around
Listen at the sound
As it calms you down

IMG_0789A

It lets you think
Your mind in a spin
As you wonder
At the amazement of a waterfall

IMG_5428RRR

It is graceful like a swan
As it flows down
It is like a gentle breeze
Such a tender touch

IMG_0629A

Waterfalls can touch your soul
Your heart
Make you wonder and think
What beauty nature brings
