Colleen Farrell December 28, 2008

Thanks so much, everybody! I really appreciate your great comments.

Yes, I was driving--with both hands on the wheel, I held the camera in my teeth and pressed the shutter button with my eyelashes. What a photographer won't do to get the shot! (Don't even try to visualize it--it's as impossible as it sounds, LOL) #6950867

Beverley Scott December 28, 2008

A fantastic image Colleen. I drove over a very similar bridge yesterday and thought how great it would be to capture it but as I was on my own I didn't try. Now I'll know in future - extra mascara to strengthen my eyelashes for the shutter button! #6951357

Colleen Farrell December 28, 2008

Thank you so much, Courtenay, Pat and Beverley! #6952033

Alex T. Mizuno January 04, 2009

Amazing shot Colleen! Can't believe you were going 70mph with your camera in one hand. I can't go more than 55mph even without my camera. I'm a pussy cat driver. LOL! #6982063

This is great Colleen !!! Fantastic B&W !! Anna #6985867

Colleen Farrell January 06, 2009

Thanks so much, Allen, Alex and Anna!

Allen, it's actually the Richmond bridge, going east.

Alex, you know I was kidding about driving while shooting, right? ;) I'm a pretty good driver, but way too clumsy with the camera to do both at once! lol #6992190

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic January 06, 2009

Carol Teal January 12, 2009

Beautiful symmetry and lines Colleen and so artistic in B&W! There is an old bridge similar to this near Tallahassee where we went camping and I wanted to go shoot it. Howeve, when I asked how far it was and they told me an hour, I didn't think we had time, and I was right. Time we got packed and home, it was late New Year's Eve. Now I wish more than ever that we could have made it although there was only me to drive, and I don't think my eyelashes are strong enough to snap the image, although I admit I haven't tried that yet! #7021711

I thought this was a cool sight yesterday.
Shot through the windshield while traveling about 70 mph.
Unfortunately there's motion blur, but I was pleased to get the truck
right in the center of the frame, with an almost perfectly symmetrical design around it--
no cropping or rotating!
