Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it."

Crossed lots of bridges on the big Americas trip... this one is known to local Cincinnatians as the 'singing bridge', due to the mesh metal roadway. The tyres hum along nicely on there! I just loved the pretty blue metal work...

The key prompt for getting me to fly west was the BAR... Blogville Awesome Retreat; a meeting of pet bloggers in Indiana's Browns State Park for the second weekend of June. This is my little mate Oreo. He wasn't impressed with the YAMarazzi...

Back from the big trip over the 'pond'... some 1800 images taken, but a goodly few are less than usable... you know how it is - just shoot and shoot and somewhere among them will be a gem or three...

Lots are of architecture and bridges. Much symmetry to be found therein! This one is from Cincinnati.

There's a "Spot The Difference" on offer - can you see it?
