WordPress Photo Challenge: Broken
This is a detail from the Alexandra Bridge in the Fraser Canyon of British Columbia. It is a disused automobile bridge, but is now only a pedestrian bridge on a lovely walking trail. It has been abused, by both the graffiti artists and time. The broken down look of this bridge’s pilings and foundations only add to its character. In the missing surfaces and rusty guardrails, there is a sense that this bridge has seen and experienced (as much as an inanimate object can see and experience) a great deal of time and wear. And in that wear is a beauty. I can only hope that when I’m broken down my experiences will make me beautiful.
