The Bridge Over

A Japanese arched bridge is always a good find.

Moon and/or Drum Bridges

I have seen the traditional arch bridges of Japan referred to by both Full Moon Bridge (engetsukyo) and Drum Bridge (taikobashi). I think they are just two names for the same thing, though feel free to school me in the comments if you know better. Both names refer to how the arch and the reflection form a circle.

Whatever the case may be, just the arched bridges themselves are lovely. Whenever I see one in Japan, I always feel the urge to take a photo.

Daily Photo: The Bridge Over

I was teaching a private photography class and the student asked about using textures. I randomly picked out this image to use as an example and also randomly picked some textures to use. I ended up liking the results so much that I finished it up on my own time.
