I watched a vlog of a Nikon Canada event hosted in Edmonton at the new Walterdale bridge, a through arch bridge that captivates with its arch suspended roadway and shape that juxtaposes a curve amongst a backdrop of architectural right angles. The Nikon event had been a means to orient new Nikon camera owners to their cameras. For me, though, this Nikon vlog introduced the possibility of getting an ‘up-close’ look at the Walterdale bridge which has held my attention through the years that it was built.
Last week, in moments away from Christmas, I parked at the Kinsman fieldhouse and walked the Walterdale bridge finding these images. At two points in my walk, first, in looking back at the structure from the northwest corner and then, again, as I viewed it from the hill just under the Queen Elizabeth pool site, this bridge structure reminded of a dream catcher. Perhaps a dream catcher conceptualization is appropriate given the bridge being immediately adjacent to an indigenous burial site just to the northeast between the exiting roadway and the Rossdale power plant.
These images are handheld with ISO set to 6400 on my Olympus EM5 MkII; the camera is forgiving; the images are somewhat grainy.

Quote to Consider / Inspire – ‘A novel ensures that we can look before and after, take action at whatever pace we choose, read again and again, skip and go back. The story in a book is humble and serviceable, available, friendly, is not switched on and off but taken up and put down, lasts a lifetime (William Golding).’ A provocative quote in light of visual narrative in photographs.
