single frame: Bridge in the woods

It was a cold, gray day when I visited Flowing Well Park in Carmel. I’d never been before; I was surprised to find a small trail in there that led across this footbridge.

    I got a kick out of your pics yesterday and today. I was just at this park last friday testing a Nikon EM. Some of our shots were pretty close. The trails were muddy, i didn’t get too far past the bridge. I ended up cutting to the right and walking along the water. Great little park! Since my work is in water/wastewater engineering, it makes me cringe when i see people filling their water bottles from the spring. I hope they are boiling it first.

      That’s hliarious! I drive 116th to work every day, all the way from Zionsville. I pass by this park every day but this was my first visit. I didn’t go beyond the bridge; I was wearing shoes I didn’t want to get muddy.

      I have a vague mistrust of the water here (and anywhere, really) but I (and I think most people) would not know exactly why they shouldn’t trust this water.

    Are the Paw Paw trees still there?

      I don’t know if I’d recognize a paw paw tree!

    Love this shot, Jim — I find it very evocative. For some reason it reminds me of M. Night Shyamalan’s film, “The Village.”

      Oooo now I might have to see that movie!

        It got mixed reviews, but I think you’ll love the visuals. The story is interesting, too — a parable about how fear can be used to control an entire community.

          Sorry! I thought you made a sly reference to my post last week about likes on social media. Apparently you didn’t!

            Oh no, I really like this picture :)
            Hm, but you’r right … I said that ‘I like you picture’ is similar to hitting the ‘like’ button. Trapped :)

    Wow, my jaw actually dropped a little with this shot. Well done!

      Hey, thanks for saying so! I almost didn’t share this one – not contrasty enough. But then I realized it had its own charms being low contrast.

      It did all right on this overcast day. In direct sunlight the darks are black and the lights are white. So clearly I’m learning more about this movie film.
