Bridgeton Covered Bridge

I love this photograph so much that I have a print of it framed and hanging in my home. It’s from a visit I made to the covered bridge at Bridgeton, in Parke County, Indiana, in 2006, just after it was built. Arson claimed the original 1868 covered bridge here.

When I was in my 20s, I drove up to Bridgeton and its first bridge when I needed some time alone to think. (I told that story here.) So when the new bridge was completed, I made a trip as soon as I could. I’m glad I did, because since then these beams have been covered in graffiti. I don’t mind graffiti, actually. I’m just happy to have this photo of the naked beams.

  1. What a beautiful image; well worth a frame. While I’m sure the bridge looks fine covered in graffiti capturing the light on the bare wood is captivating.

    • Oh why thank you! I love this photo even now, 11 years after I shot it. I was such a beginner then and it is both luck and a capable camera that allowed me to get such good tones and decent composition.
