Wobbly bridge

Crossing Stony Brook, Institute Woods: The perfect place for an unsteady photo:) Lenape tribes, 1690s Quaker settlersWashington and Einstein all passed through these lands, once upon a time.

This photo is amazing, Lulu. Accompanied by your text, it gave me a little chill, thinking of all that history.

There's plenty of history there and it also a beautiful spot.

Excelente composición, donde el puente adquiere el protagonismo de la foto, por su singularidad y referencias históricas.
una buena foto.
Un saludo, Ángel

Just looking at it is making me think "motion sickness."

Hmmmmm... quite inviting. A little alarming. I can imagine how it would sway. Nice shot.
