"Good composition is like a suspension bridge - each line adds strength and takes none away." ~ Robert Henri (American urban realist painter, 1865-1929)
An imposing structure, the Brooklyn Bridge; the lower level contains four lanes of highway, two lanes each direction and the second level is home to a wide footpath for pedestrians and a bicycle path with resting areas around both of the great anchoring towers. The heavy cables and wire that suspend the weight of that bridge and the weight of hundreds of cars during rush hour are all anchored by only two towers; what strength in those lines, what beautiful form and remarkable function. well as a most distinctive architectural form and beauty.

The theme for Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt this week is "lines". You can go here to "Grab the Scavenger Hunt code" and here to join the blogroll. The link to other participants is in my blogroll on the sidebar.
