    well i hope there are more than me who like to take photos:


    this is one of the gears under the New River Bridge, the bridge now has a cat walk that is available to the public at a high price but i digress..the bridge can expand and move due to these gears... the bridge is the 8th megas tructure in the world (according to their website)

    Oooh, I love perusing folks pics. Here's a few of mine.

    Mural at a retro gas station in Collierville, TN.
    That area reminds me a lot of the town in the movie Pleasantville:

    Flooded banks of the Mississippi River at Memphis, TN:

    Random oak trees on old plantation near Natchitoches, Louisiana:

    Boardwalk at a wildlife reserve in (the middle of nowhere) Rossville, TN.
    One of my favorite places to roam when I need solitude.
    There's rarely anyone else there.

    And likewise...great thread idea :)

    The last time I took a photo of a bridge, I was stopped by police who declared I was a perceived threat to Homeland Security and asked for me to leave the area :omg: Apparently they had surveillance cameras in the area...I had my son with me and was cooperative, but my understanding (now) is that they could've confiscated my camera. Madness!

    this is one of the largest earth dams....i had no trouble getting close to the bottom...

    Summersville Dam is on the Gauley River near the town of Summersville in Nicholas County, West Virginia, and controls a watershed of 803 square miles. It is one of the US Army Corps of Engineers' most scenic dams. A rock-fill dam, it gives the impression that nature, not man, placed it there. Summersville is the second largest dam of its type in the Eastern United States and required 12 million cubic yards of earth and rock. The Dam is 390 feet high (about as tall as a 40 story building) and 2,280 feet long. It was built under supervision of the US Army Corps between 1960 and 1966, at a cost of nearly $48 million. Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, dedicated the Dam on September 3, 1966. By the end of 1974, it had paid for itself by preventing flood damages to the Kanawha Valley, estimated at nearly twice its cost.

    Wales does indeed have its attractions (I mean the scenery, not the dog, fine creature though he is!). This was taken a couple of years ago, on top of a hill overlooking the town of Brecon:

    Really nice Daisy. We went to Yellowstone last summer. I have tons of photos, including an upclose shot of a grizzly from the side of a road, that I need to recover from an old laptop. Lesson learned: Backup your photos!

    A few abstracts of mine...was aiming for surreal:
