Going along with the minimalistic view from Charleston that I shared on Friday, the photo above is the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge which crosses the Cooper River. The bridge is often called the Charleston Bridge, most likely because it is much easier to remember. The minute I laid eyes on that bridge I knew it was my favorite of all the bridges in all the world. (that I have seen in person)

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

Scott

  1. Great composition and tones. I really like it because of the bend in the bridge that you catch.

  2. I really like the comp here. The b/w really adds to the minimalistic feel to this shot as well. Very nice!

    1. Thank you very much Chris!

  3. Love the minimalism. Cool bridge too. We have a bridge like that near me here in Japan. I’ll have to try to catch it sometime.

    1. Thanks David. Please share the photo when you capture it!
