The Pearl at the Swinging Bridge





This is the Pearl River that runs through Mississippi. The bridge has long been shut down for vehicle traffic but is a great attaction for locals and a few tourist. While photographing it, a couple that appeared to be in their late fifties remanisted about thier first date. They discribed it as a thrill as they rolled across and felt it moving beneath them. I knew exactly what they meant as it move noticibly under the foot traffic. The last photo really got my attention. I loved the contrast of trees, roots and rock. Have a great day!

That closeup og the rusty cable is my favourite from these. It has a lovely feeling and perspective.

I love old cable bridges. Like old barns, they make for great photos and great memories. I have fished the mighty Pearl further south down near Slidell, La. Lots of good channel cats to be harvested on a well set trout line.

Right fine photos, right fine! Native Mississippians, my Mama and I lived at the Swinging Bridge RV park for three years before we moved to Portland, Oregon. Glad you discovered my blog so that I could discover yours. I'll be back.

Very nice pictures. I like them all but really like the artistic feel of the rusted bolt. Very nicely done.
