Taking the road to…

via Photo Challenge: Bridge

…to the past, to the present…or to the future?? The very thought of a covered bridge leads me to such mystic and magical thoughts. As I combed through to find images, 3 stuck out to me…

I can almost see it, as I enter the bridge the boards are new and the paint is crisp and fresh.  But halfway in, I see the transition.  The paint is beginning to peel and the boards are looking so weathered.  As I emerge on the other side, I come to the town square. It is very quaint and humbly decorated.

Any of these would be a welcomed sight.  The intrigue that I associate with these bridges is spell binding.  I need to feel the surroundings…
