Bridge over the Delaware

We found a pretty iron bridge over the Delaware River in the eastern United States on our recent trip and I was fascinated by the crisp, dark shadows cast in the hot sunshine. I took many photos.

Looking along the bridge ...


... and with my camera turned at right angles ...


... and ...


These, together with other photos taken on our trip, are sparking lots of new ideas for me - and sometimes (though not always) a change from trees. 

I've already begun to experiment with stitch on two of these bridge images and I'll post any results that seems interesting.

    1. Eh bien! Un filet .. et puis peut-être, un tissage ou un broderie main. Actuellement, tout s'est possible. Je dois expérimenter beaucoup ...

  5. All those lovely grids and lines, and all that play with negative space - hours of endless fun, I should think!

    1. You have it to a tee!
      So far, I've tried disrupting the firm grid lines with wandering machine stitch but so much more to come! Will post the results when I find the time to do so - visitors again just now.
