About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Big Four Bridge


The Big Four Bridge for pedestrians and bicycles officially opened for traffic on Friday.  This old  railroad truss bridge spans the Ohio River, connecting Louisville, KY and Jeffersonville, IN.  This old bridge has been a part of the Louisville waterscape since the late 1800s.  I was at the right place, right time, with camera handy back in November to catch this sunset.  Using these three shots to show how dramatically the scene changed in just a few minutes. (Click on collage to enlarge.)

If you enjoy water photography be sure to check out Nature FootstepWaters for Sunday to see entries from all over. Or, even better, link to your own water photos.

What a pretty evening back-drop for the bridge Faye
You mentioned you were thinking of posting your French pics ..... most bloggers love anything French. I've got the two blogs one French and the other for my home city but I've noticed some people incorporate the two. It's very rewarding to post holiday pics as you get to re- live the time.
