Bridge over Peaceful Waters


 This old and beautiful sepia tone photograph is
very small, only about 1.5 by 2.5 inches. Its unique size will make it hard to frame, but its dark romantic look makes it worthy of a wall. I got lost once, missing the signs for the Tappan Zee bridge, and spent four hours going out of my way over the George Washington, fumbling with paper maps in my pre-phone period. But this photo doesn't bring that same feeling back, it's way too pretty. The subtle natural colors and evening atmosphere bring to mind cocktails, soft jazz music and a slow ride to a familiar destination.
