This is my final post for the 2016-2017 52 Week Photo Challenge. I really enjoy this challenge because it keeps me constantly looking for new photo opportunities. For my final photo I chose to enhance one I took on a recent trip to Minneapolis with an “Old Photographic Effect”. The Stone Arch Bridge in downtown Minneapolis crosses over the Mississippi River near Saint Anthony Falls, the only natural water fall on the 2,320 mile long river. The bridge was built in 1883 by James J. Hill for the Great Northern Railway. Today the bridge has been transformed into a major pedestrian and bicycle thoroughfare. This photo shows an isolated area of the bridge with a smaller foot bridge that leads to a pathway along the river.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog every week. My next post will be the beginning of another year full of more interesting and fun themes.
