The subject carries literally road traffic but it has a strong metaphoric meaning. I have been fortunate enough to cross bridges and meet people of different faith and race, age and sexual orientation for work and life outside work. Bridges apart from their function to bring people together can be interesting sketching, painting, engraving or photographic subjects.

I knew I was up against a challenging subject with bright and dark areas. With a technology centuries away from histograms or HDR and an automatic film camera (a full frame camera as I remind to some bazooka camera carriers) that most would not take seriously, I was posed to take on the challenge as the first pilots took up flying. With a wing and a prayer. ''God, may this frame be not wasted when I get the film back''. The little plastic black box, paid handsomely on its day, did its job as intended,

When I brought the camera to my eye to compose I considered the fact that the viewfinder was below and to the left side from the ''taking'' lens. With as much I could see (without the glasses, beep - beep) I placed the young tree trunk in front of me through the opening of the arch parallel to my edge frame. The bridge horizon was tilted and the lamp-post which could not be zoomed or focused upon might have looked leaning. The condition below the arch not as ''perfect'' visually. I framed it so as the left side of the bridge missing is supplemented by the right side of the bridge, or as close as my ''taking'' lens was away (that is why I considered it working similar to a rangefinder camera).
