Creative Photo - Abridged
For Roger's Creative Photo this week, I am returning to bridges that have a bit of style to them. My subject is from 1999, and is the bridge that spans the Ohio River westbound between Weirton, WVa and Steubenville, Ohio. This is a cable stayed bridge, and the suspension cables eminate from a single tower. On the left, I chose to use the Invert Colors mode, dramatizing the immense tower. On the right the Pencil Drawing mode that emphasizes a more delicate feel.
The original shot is on the lower left.This is a stylish bridge, and if anyone had driven the original two-lane Fort Steuben Bridge (1921) with its narrow lanes and rickety feel, this replacement is safer, more functional and far better looking. And a better photo subject. Visit Roger's great meme for more artists posing as photographers...
