I was thinking that looked familiar. Say - is that the covered bridge? Hope your back problems get solved soon, I have problems with mine all the time, just a bummer when it flares up!
Feel better soon!

It's always good to see the bridge. I like it in b&w!

What a beautyful picture! the B&W adds a lot of nostalgy to the place, and the reflection is wonderful!
Take care of your back, take some rest ! As we say in France: "Levez le pied"! and you'll be better soon!

We can never see that covered bridge too many times. We have nothing like that here in Israel, so I enjoy seeing yours.

Today I continue your stained glass tradition of last week.

Be well, James. Shalom

Dianne said...

I never tire of the bridge

Such beautiful bridge. And perfect reflections.
Get well soon James.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Doreen said...

where is this bridge at? I love covered bridges, as I have posted a few here in Michigan a few times also. hope the back is better soon, coming from someone that has had two back surgeries!! :-)

awarewriter said...

I'm envious James. This is another fine shot of a marvelous subject. I'm envious because I don't know of any covered bridges in this part (or any part for that matter) of South Jersey.

Carolyn Ford said...

I think one gorgeous bridge like this could offer so many photo opp possibilities...think of all the perspectives there! How fun that would be! It looks like it is actually accessible to explore with a camera! Love it in black and white and what crystal clear reflections you captured.

I hope your back gives you some relief VERY soon!

SquirrelQueen said...

Since I love covered bridges you can't show enough of their photos for me. This one is spectacular in monochrome. Hope your back problems clear up very soon.

Clytie said...

I can see why you love this covered bridge so much. It's so beautiful!

And now it's spectacular in monochrome!

Alexa said...

And it's certainly worth more than one view! Love it in b&w. Hope your back is better soon.

MOO said...

I love this retro snap! Mine's a little metaphorical today...

Joanne said...

Beautiful Black and White! Hope you feel better soon...

joo said...

I love this black and white photo- the bridge is amazing!

Rinkly Rimes said...

Why seek further afield when you have such a lovely subject near at hand?

Woody said...

I hope your back feels better soon! Love the bridge, it reflects well.

Bibi said...

I'm not tired of it yet! Keep 'em coming!

eileeninmd said...

Wonderful covered bridge and the reflection is awesome. I only joined Weekend Reflections recently so I think it is new for me James.

EG Wow said...

Covered bridges are rare here so it's a pleasure to see yours. :)

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Love that bridge with perfect reflection.

Your meme is something that make me pause to ponder by. Even photos have beautiful stories to tell without us even saying a thing.

A physical reflection may not be necessary or one that we can look down, up and scrutinize the surrounding of the subject shadowing in the space in between but by looking at the picture alone for what it tells makes us reflect upon life for what it's worth.

Get well soon. I had the same problem in the last three months or so. I feel better now in that department. The sign of times (of getting old). haha

Cheryl said...

This photo is stunning! I do hope you are feeling much better. I too suffer from back problems so I sympathize with you!

Irene said...

Great shot! Wish you a great weekend!

Naquillity said...

i love covered bridges. your image works so well in black and white. have a great weekend.

Hilda said...

I, for one, will not tire of your photos of this bridge. It's lovely and your photos are always so different! This one is a perfect reflection and your use of sepia is gorgeous!

Just got back home yesterday and this is the first time I'm doing the rounds in three weeks. Hope your back gives you some respite soon.

Tash said...

Always a great subject. This photo of it is a new classic.
Take good care of you back this wkend.

Thérèse said...

Simply beautiful. I hope you could ease your pain lying down on the planks and take pictures of the inside bridge ceiling... :)

Becky and Gary said...

Yes, it does look familiar, and still a great choice!

Pam said...

Its a wonderful old covered bridge, James. I am not familiar with this one but its easy to see why your are so intrigued with it.

I hope your 'pain in back' goes away soon. Be well, be happy :)

Mama Zen said...

I love that bridge!

happilyretired said...

I never tired of looking at covered bridges like this one ... it's something you just don't see here in Southern California. The weather in your photo DOES seem familiar ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Ebie said...

Love the sepia-like tones of the bridge. The reflections are just mirror effects.

I hope you get a good rest for your back pain. Feel better!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Great shot James.
You always do this bridge justice.
I hope your back gets better real soon!

I can see why you like this bridge. The scenery and reflections here are great. Regarding you back, do get well soon.

Gattina said...

Doesn't look very user friendly, lol !

hip chick said...

Beautiful. I love it in sepia. It almost brings you right back.

Owen said...

Hi James,
Here's hoping your back will quickly calm down and let you get back to your wanderings.

That covered bridge is a beauty, and like any work of art, it may be viewed again and again, in different light, weather, seasons, moods... just think of the series that Monet did of Rouen Cathedral, for example, or of something simple like haystacks... transforming them into timeless memories. So you are hereby granted permission to publish as many variations on the covered bridge theme as you deem worthy of our attention... and as you can see, there are quite a few of us who keep coming back for more, so you are clearly onto something...
:-)
Keep it up...

Cheryl Ann said...

What a beautiful photo! You captured it elegantly!

Lucka said...

I`m sorry for the double posting. The first link was incorrect.
The bridge looks amazing!
Have a great weekend.

jabblog said...

Perfect reflection on such a calm day.
Sorry about your back - ouch! I know how you feel.

JM said...

Perfect, James!

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

Too bad about your back - hope you can get some good physical therapy for it. Do enjoy your meme with such a variety of photos to look at!

Stickup Artist said...

Hey James,

So sorry to hear about your back. Hope you get back to normal soon. Photography can put one in such awkward positions!

I never get tired of shooting the mountain out my window in different seasons and light, so I can understand your re-visiting your favorite subjects. I think it's the only way you can really learn about photography. There is always something new and wonderful to discover for the artist and the viewer.

And I for one love your covered bridge series, the changes in the light and surrounding landscape. So keep them coming!

Anna said...

And it is a nice subject. It is stunning photo. Hope you can relax and rest. Anna :)

Halcyon said...

It still looks as nice as ever!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

James, that bridge is worth seeing as many times as you want to post it! Get better soon. Thank you as always for doing this lovely meme, especially when you're feeling yukky.

Evelyn said...

HI James

Happy weekend, Ev

Dani said...

Luna Miranda said...

i love this photo. reminds me of classic black and white movies.:p

leavesnbloom said...

James what a lovely bridge to have on your doorstep that you can photograph through all the seasons of the year. I'm new to this meme and looking forward to the challenge of finding reflections to photograph. My submission is on my Centre of Interest photoblog.

I hope your back improves soon - suffered from that myself in the past and know how debilitating it can be.

Good to be here :) Rosie

tapirgal said...

The bridge has many faces and facets. Today's accentuates the wood and feels calm. I hope you're feeling better soon.
