Re: Covered Bridge

beautiful structure, always appreciates the craftsmanship like the wooden pin in #3; too bad about the graffiti

Thank you for looking and commenting "D" . It is a beautiful bridge with great craftmanship. Some of the large beams where made from willows which were standing at the location of the bridge,

Joachim,

Beautiful bridge and lovely series.  Amazing woodwork, and nice to see some old-world craftsmanship being used (though not always respected, apparently!).

Personal opinion here: I strongly dislike the whole graffiti trend - if it was in certain designated areas maybe, but especially in Europe it's an absolute scourge on amazing historical buildings, landmarks, monuments, etc - and it's tolerated if not almost encouraged.  Not sure if Canada goes that route now or not - I haven't noticed any out-of-control graffiti allowed in Quebec City, and Ottawa and Montreal seems to keep it away from historic buildings and landmarks at least.

It's actually painful to me to see graffiti on a lovely bridge built in that classic style, all wood, just like the originals, and in such a lovely setting.  Let graffiti stick to dense urban areas and modern concrete buildings if it's going to be allowed.

Justin, I am glad you liked the photos of the covered bridge. It is barely 30 years old but it became a "landmark" since it also of great help to many students who walk or cycle to the university. You are correct, we live in strange times were defacing, damaging destroying/burning is accepted and even encouraged by some "learning" institutions under the guise of cancel culture.

I have not encountered the defacing of landmarks in Canada as much as it is happening in Europe. However churches have also been burnt in Canada.

Quebec City is known for its murals and Montreal, Toronto have some interesting graffiti alleys. I plan on doing a photo series of murals in Hamilton, ON where this type of art has been very much encouraged.

Lovely series.  Really like inclusion of cyclist in #2 and am impressed with depth of field you were able to achieve at f4.  I would have tried for f11 if I could stablize the camera.  Thanks for posting!

Thank you Paul. f11 handheld would have been OK with the IBIS. However, I did not want the trees at the end of the bridge to be sharp. I feel the outline of the cyclist is still sharp enough at f4. F11 would probably produce a flat image. I have shot most of the images with this lens at f4 or lower.
