Crossing the canal

It occurs to me that I often shoot photos with traffic in blurred motion against the foreground and background that is static and sharp. I guess this is to create contrast, but I can tell you that this bridge was in motion too. When this truck hit the bridge deck it was like I was on a trampoline... well not quite, but it is surprising how much bounce there can be in what I assume is a structurally sound construction.

  1. Even if the vibrations are not visible - I guess you would be in severe trouble now, if they had been - the image works really well. Rust and decaying color give at least hints that the heydays of this bridge must have been long ago. And I like the color palette here very much - well seen!
