Mt Hope Bridge in Narragansett Bay
The Mount Hope Bridge connects Aquidneck Island and Bristol Rhode Island. Newport lies at the southern end of Aquidneck Island. At the northern end lie the communities of Island Park and Common Fence Point where the Mount Hope Bridge comes arcing in for a touchdown. I had a great time looking for places to shoot this bridge from.
Time for some personal philosophy. I think everyone should spend some time wandering around with a camera over their shoulder looking for pretty things to take pictures of. Or a guitar ... cameras and guitars both suit the itinerant lifestyle and say to the world: "I travel but not because I have to." I had trouble with that last turn of phrase. It didn't really "turn", do you know what I mean? I might also have said " ... but not because I'm escaping famine." or " ... but not because I'm on my way to work." or " ... but not because I have buck teeth." This is degenerating.
I think I should get into why I think people should travel around with either a camera or a guitar. Because .... It opens the mind. It makes one into an observer. It also gives you something to say to nosy cops when they grill you about what the hell you're doing in their town. Just shrug and point to the camera or the guitar as if to say "what does it look like I'm doing Sherlock." I think I should also add that you should only carry a guitar if you can really play one or if you think there's a very high probability that you'll be able to play one in the future. If you can't play one you shouldn't carry one because sooner or later someone is going to ask you to play it and then your cover is blown or you'll really annoy someone who loves music. If you can't play a guitar then stick with the camera. Anyone can take a picture.
